Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government will send a proposal to the Central Government for setting up 1457 high schools in the state in 2012-13 under Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA).

The decision has been taken in Chief Secretary-led meeting of UP Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan Parishad on Monday. The government is mulling to set to these schools in the minority dominated areas.

Under the RMSA, the government has given its nod to the creation of 4938 posts for teaching and non-teaching staff in the 449 high schools approved in 2011-12.

One principal, seven assistant teachers, one lower divisional clerk and two posts for Group-D have been approved for each high school. However, the government did not consider the proposal for creation of posts for teaching and non-teaching staff in the 148 model schools.

This plan will cost the government exchequer Rs 75 lakh annually.
