How to change teaching language in Govt aided school

Date: 18 Apr 2016   Posted By: Darshan     Group: Education    Category: India Educational Consultants   

One of my relatives runs a Govt aided (primary)school in Tamilnadu in Tamil medium. the number of students have reduced from 120 few years ago to only 15 now. If he continues, it may soon become a single digit. He wants to change to the medium of language to English. My questions are:
1. Is there any provision from the educational system for changing the language medium?
2. If yes, then does the school get aid from the Govt?
3. If not, can the same licensee be used for conversion of the medium?
Awaiting advice from experts.

I think the owner of the school will have to first decide, if he requires Government aid or not. In case the Government aid is required, then he should contact the authority who approves and distribute the Government aid. He will be the best authority to advise on the subject matter as ultimately, the Government aid will become the crucial factor. In case the authority requires re-approval of the school for continuing aid after switching over from the Tamil medium to English medium, then the procedure should be completed accordingly. Both Tamil and English medium school exist in the state of Tamil Nadu. Recognition of a private school under the Tamil Nadu Recognized Private Schools (Regulation) Act, 1973 is required for receiving Government aid, which is implemented by the Department of School Education, Government of Tamil Nadu.
