The West Bengal Education Minister Partha Chatterjee inaugurated a web-portal namely ”Banglar Shiksha”(, describing the real-time data on state-run aided and unaided school on Tuesday.

He informed, ”Banglar Shiksha” (, will be up and running in two months.” The minister also instructed the department official to keep him posted about the ongoing construction of the web-portal.

“This is probably the first-of-its-kind online initiative in the state as well as in the country. It will be operated on a trial basis for two months to remove glitches if any. The portal should be fully functional by May 1,” Mr. Chatterjee stated.

The web-records will help keep the records of student’s attendance in school.

“Unlike many initiatives of the previous regime, we have to ensure it (portal) does not become dysfunctional. The portal will address many issues, including attendance of students and teachers. “A class teacher will also have to be present in the school to fill in data pertaining to academic and co-curricular activities of every student,” he informed.

The Minsiter also informed the few more benefits of web-portal that included uploading of  “videos of teaching sessions” from various institutes.

“The school principals and headmasters will play a vital role in supplying information. They should be the first ones to receive training on how to operate the web platform,” Mr Chatterjee said, along with informing that state is adopting measures to introduce e-learning in government and private schools.

It was also informed by the department through issuing a formal notification that the portal will help keep the record of 1.5 crore students, five lakh teachers and one lakh schools.

“The system will enable the headmaster and class teacher to access the academic performance of a student. Parents, too, can access the information by downloading the ”Banglar Shiksha” app,” the notification informed.
