News : Gujarat Government Sets Up Call Centre to Keep an Eye on its School Teachers
Ahmedabad, India, May 21, 2019 -- This is one phone call that government school teachers across Gujarat cannot afford to miss. And once they answer, the voice at the other end will ask them a series of questions from a template about the location of their assignment for the day, the task, and who assigned it. If they are on leave, they will have to provide details, including the number of days and the approval authority.
This, in short, is the state government’s new "realtime technology enabled" surveillance plan to "keep an eye" on over 1.95 lakh school teachers after the new academic session starts on June 10. The aim is to improve the quality of education by ensuring that teachers stick to their assigned tasks on a daily basis. Officials say the system was devised after various discussions and reports concluded that poor monitoring of teachers resulted in absenteeism and "non-seriousness".

It’s not just the teachers, though. Even those who monitor them will be handed GPS-enabled tablets and tracked through geofencing by which an alert will be triggered when a mobile device enters or leaves a specified area.
The entire operation, officials say, will be run from a tech-equipped "command and control centre", which is being set up in Gandhinagar. The centre will initially be staffed by 50 dedicated members, hired in equal numbers from the Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and the office of the Director, Primary Education (DPE). It will include a call centre to be run under Vinod Rao, Principal Secretary, Education.
