Though uncertainty looms large over the procurement of woollen jerseys for students, local government schools have started receiving the winter uniform supplies.Many schools have submitted samples of the uniforms received at government laboratories for technical clearance.

Principal of Government Model Senior Secondary School, Sector 16, Anujit Kaur, said the school had already received the supplies for school uniforms.

She said: “We have sent the samples for technical clearance, the results of which will be out in a week or so. After that, we will distribute the uniforms to the school students.”
This year’s winter uniform consists of full sleeve shirts and pants for boys and full sleeve shirts and tunics for girls.

Principal of Government Model High School, Sector 34,GMSSS-16 principal Chandigarh, Vinod Sharma, said his school was also likely to distribute the uniforms next month as the supply order was expected soon.
Officials of the UT education department said schools would distribute the school uniforms on time this year.

Director of public instructions (schools) Kamlesh Kumar said schools were taking efforts to distribute the uniforms before the winter season began.

Meanwhile, Monday was the last date to submit bids for the supply of woollen jerseys to government schools.

The UT education department allowed the vendors to submit their tenders to different schools at a common venue (Government Girls Model Senior Secondary School, Sector 18) before 5 pm.
A department official said they were sorting out the bids and would forward them to the respective schools on Tuesday.
A government school head said: “If schools fail to garner adequate response at the common venue, then woollen jerseys cannot be purchased on time.”

The second tender was issued as the first tender had failed to get adequate response from vendors.
In Chandigarh, over one lakh students are eligible for free school uniforms under the Right to Education Act.

Woollen jerseys are priced at Rs 450 and Rs 550 a piece for junior and senior classes respectively.
