KGBV Action Taken Report on Observations of Evaluation Team for KGBVs. Contd… Sl noIssuesAction TakenComments 1The KGBVs in Manipur do not cater to out of school/ never enrolled girls, but enrolling school going girls in the KGBVs primarily on grounds of economic constraints of their families despite the fact that state has large number of out of school girls. Identification of students is done in an ad-hoc manner. Network of the church had been used to enroll girls and consequently there were girls from other blocks/ Districts. Deputy Commissioners/ Chairperson, District Board of Education who are also the Chairman of the Management Committee for KGBVs in their respective districts have enrolled girls in the Academic Session 2014 which started in February who are (i) Unable to go to regular schools (ii) Out of school girls in the 10+ age group who are unable to complete primary school and (iii) Girls of migratory populations. Residential and Non-Residential Special Trainings are provided to newly identified Girls falling under the category for further enrollment. No specific / targeted action on the enrollment of girls of specific groups like cookies who migrated frequently.

All KGBVs in the State are secular in nature and no Religious Organizations are involved in the management/functioning of any of the 11(eleven) KGBVs in the State. NGO Verification & orientation needs to be taken up
