10,000 new Anganwadi centres soon: Kiran

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy on Sunday said ten thousand new Anganwadi centres would be opened shortly.

He also asked the district Collectors for effective implementation of the Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS) as it would contribute to substantial improvement in the overall human development index. He wanted them to review the progress and implementation of the scheme regularly. They should facilitate convergence between Rural Development, Health and WCD&SC Departments, he said.

In all, 91,307 Anganwadi centres were sanctioned in the State and 82,565 main and mini Anganwadi centres are operational at present. Construction of buildings for Anganwadi centres would be taken up with NABARD assistance.

Around 15,214 additional classrooms were sanctioned during 2010-11, of which 8703 were already constructed by the end of last month. The Chief Minister asked the district Collectors to speed up the completion of the remaining classrooms so as to provide basic facilities to the children by the time of re-opening of schools for the academic year 2011-12.
