Amount allocated for school siphoned off

It is reported that the amounts allocated to various schools in Udayapur district for school management and operation every year have been massively siphoned off.

It has been disclosed from some schools in Udayapur that the fund provided to the schools by District Education Office is being embezzled by concerned school headmaster taking school management into confidence.

Every year, the District Education Office has been allocating Rs. 42,000 for a primary level school, Rs. 64,000 for lower secondary school and Rs. 156,000 for secondary school for the school management and employees remuneration.

But, this amount has been misappropriated in some of the schools of Udayapur in collaboration of headmaster and school management committee by ignoring the directives in writing from the District Education Office and Education Ministry.

It has come to police notice that office peon of Bhimsen Adarsha lower secondary school in Hadiya VDC of Udayapur has been receiving remuneration Rs. 1,100 per month and rest of the amount of his salary has been siphoned off by school headmaster and management committee chairperson.

It was made public when peon Sukdev Danuwar recently submitted an application to school council complaining that he has been receiving monthly salary Rs. 1,100 and rest of the amount is being misappropriated by school headmaster and management committee chairperson.

The same cases are reported in most of the schools in the district including Triyuga municipality area.
