AHMEDABAD: Struggling with finances, the city civic body has now begun to unburden itself from looking after its infrastructural white elephants. On Monday, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) approved a proposal to give contracts to run its 41 existing gymnasiums and five upcoming ones on public-private partnership (PPP) model for five years. Sources said the civic body is likely to follow the same model in operating skating rinks and sports enclaves. The civic body's recreational, cultural and heritage committee's meeting on Monday discussed a proposal according to which 41 existing gymnasiums, and five being built in Naranpura, Jodhpur, Vejalpur, Lambha and Vatva, will be given to private players to run. The committee approved the proposal which states that in future, all gymnasiums of AMC would be given to private players to be run on PPP model. The official said that once the standing committee approves this proposal, a tender for the same will be floated. The initial tenure for operations will be five years but if the results are found to be satisfactory, the contract may be extended for three more years. Sources said that these gymnasiums were proving to be white elephants for the civic body as it spends Rs 3.82 crore annually to run them, but the annual income earned does not exceed Rs 55 lakh. Sources said that AMC's revenue from these gyms was Rs 45.96 lakh in 2016-17, Rs 54.88 lakh in 2017-18, Rs 52.49 lakh in 2018-19 and Rs 46.62 lakh in 2019-20. The civic body suffers a loss of Rs 3.27 crore annually, on average, and on top of that it spends Rs 20-25 lakh on installing new equipment. The proposal states that the private player who gets the contract will be able to charge Rs 300 per month for a non-AC gym, Rs 500 for an AC gym, Rs 500 per month for personal coaching in non-AC gyms and Rs 700 in an AC gym. The base annual rental fixed for Vejalpur gym is Rs 3 lakh, for Naranpura gym Rs 4.20 lakh, for Vatva and Lambha gyms Rs 3 lakh each, and for Jodhpur gym, Rs 5.60 lakh. The contracts will be given to the highest bidders.

Whether it is due to the lackadaisical approach of self-financed private schools to fill up appropriate statistics on the U-DISE portal or an actual lack of adequate number of students, the District Education Officer (DEO), City has identified 57 private schools in city that have 20 or less students enrolled in the primary section.The schools located in various parts of the city may face closure of classes with fewer students or closing of entire schools in view of very few students. The DEO has given the schools seven days to confirm the accurate details of the total number of students they have before action is taken.A circular in this regard will be sent to the schools on Saturday, said officials. The schools listed in the circular include primary schools under DEO City’s jurisdiction in areas like Gomtipur, Vatva, Khadia, Kalupur, Ognaj, Gyaspur, Ghatlodia, Saraspur, Chandkheda, Madhupura, Vastral Saijpur, Odhav, Vasana, Kubernagar among others.Of the total schools listed, 14 schools have zero students listed on the U-DISE portal, followed by 23 schools with students in single digits and the rest of them with students up to a maximum 20. “Like every year, we scan all schools’ admissions and the total number of students they have based on the U-DISE data. At the end of the scan, we have found some 57 schools that have 20 or less students. When private schools have very few students, the studies suffer as the schools do not hire teachers for the few students. This leaves students with compromised quality of education,” said a senior official in the DEO.Officials said allowing these schools to continue with the limited number of students will set a wrong precedent, which is why they have asked them to update and confirm the total number of students. “If the schools do not have an adequate number of students in a specific class or in school, they will face closure and students will be admitted to other nearby schools,” said the official.The schools are asked to submit a copy of the affidavit, consent letter from parents, consent letter from teachers, resolution from the trustees, list of students enrolled under RTE and the school’s permission letter for submitting the details if the school wishes to close classes by next week.
