Road construction agencies asked to enhance efficiency
Two agencies tasked with constructing roads in the city are facing challenges. Instead of completing one road at a time, roads in different areas are being simultaneously excavated, resulting in delays. Due to a shortage of manpower, roads are not being constructed promptly.
In response to local concerns, the commissioner has directed officials to ensure that work on another road only begins after completing the current one, alleviating inconvenience for residents.
Guidelines issued by City DEO to improve board exam results
The City District Education Office (City DEO) has issued guidelines to improve results in Class 10-12 board exams for schools with less than 30 percent pass rates. School principals and teachers are instructed to conduct programs, including face-to-face guidance meetings and seminars, to help relieve stress in students.
Additionally, the 'Pariksha Ek Utsav' program has been mandated at the school level to further support students in achieving favorable results.
