different posts of Principal, Vice Principal, PGTs and TGTs will be recruited through a
centralized computer-based test followed by inter-views (excluding TGTs) to be
conducted by respective States. The recruitment shall be done state-wise based on
state-specific vacancy as tabulated below:

The recruitment drive has been initiated jointly with respective States in order to meet
the rising demand of teachers for the clear vacancies in already functional schools and
schools going to be functional this year, calculated after excluding the posts currently filled
by regular and ad-hoc/contractual staff. Modalities for the existing ad-hoc/contractual staff
shall be taken at a later stage in consultation with different stake holders.
The portal for receiving the applications will open from 1.4.2021 to 30.04.2021 with the

The scheme of EMRS is a flagship intervention of the Ministry of Tribal Affairs to provide
quality education to the tribal students in the tribal areas of the country. The scheme,
in operation, since 1998 underwent a major revamping in the year 2018-19 to improve
the geographical outreach of the schools to every block with 50% or more ST
population and 20,000 or more tribal persons with an aim to improve accessibility to
the schools. Under the revamped scheme, 452 new schools will be setup in addition to
the existing 288 schools thereby taking the total number of schools to 740 in the coming
years. Out of these, proposals submitted by States for the opening of 100 schools have
been finalised, where in construction will start soon. 

EMRSs have become an island of excellence in the remote tribal hinterlands attracting a large number of tribal children. The focus under the scheme is to ensure holistic
development of the students in both academic and extracurricular sphere. With the
filling up of the vacant posts and as several initiatives fructify in the days to come,
EMRSs will not only be model school in the tribal areas, they will become a premier
institution of nation building. various initiatives have been taken in the recent past
through capacity building of teachers, leadership development of principals, CBSE
affiliation of the schools, introduction of online and digital education in the schools,
partnership with external stakeholders for converging resources under various existing
programmes like Atal Tinkering Labs, NISHTA etc..
