The UT education department directed government schools to procure winter school uniform before October 15.


As per guidelines issued by the department, every government school will ensure that winter uniforms are purchased as per general finance rules which mandates the limited tender process, if the purchase is between Rs  1 lakh and Rs. 10 lakh. The procedure of e-tendering and wide publicity is required if the purchase exceeds Rs. 10 lakh and is up to Rs. 25 lakh.

Although a few schools fall under e-tendering in the UT, the purchase of rest of the schools is between Rs. 1 lakh and Rs. 10 lakh. The procurement rates for the winter season were same as last year. The upper price ceiling will be Rs. 350 per set for classes 1 to 5 and Rs. 425 per set for classes 6 to 8.

DEO RK Sharma said all guidelines will be sent to government schools on Tuesday so that they can start the process of inviting tenders for uniform purchase at the earliest so that winter uniforms are procured on time. “With an early approval this time, the department has tried to ensure timely procurement of the winter uniform,” said DPI (s) Kamlesh Kumar.
