New Delhi, Feb 26, 2017: The Delhi government on Sunday announced it will send 200 of its teachers on “exposure trips” to leading educational institutions in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Jaipur and Ahmedabad.

These teachers would visit various government and private schools, and non-governmental organisations working in the field of education to observe and understand their teaching methods and innovations, an official statement said.

“Mentor teachers will be deeply enriched by their exposure trips that the government has organised for them. I am positive that this will significantly improve their ability to build capacities of other teachers in future,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

The educational trips would take place in March, the government said.

Mentor teachers are a group of around 200 teachers who support and assist peers from five-six schools each.

The Delhi government had last year sent around 100 mentor teachers to Singapore for education and skill training. (IANS)

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.
