The intense amount of financial assistance permissible for each person is ₹75 lakh which will cover tuition fees, accommodation, books and living costs of the selected candidates.
To boost the quality of teaching at municipal schools, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) has chosen to send its instructors to overseas institutions for further studies, with the corporation agreeing to cover the cost of tuition, housing, and living costs, officials said.
Vikas Anand, commissioner of the EDMC, said that the goal is to enhance the standard of teaching in the district’s schools. “At the moment, EDMC schools employ around 5,000 instructors. While we make every effort to maintain the excellent level of educational institutions in that country, we also provide opportunities for our professors to obtain worldwide exposure. We send our instructors to international institutions to study in various teacher education programmes.
Teachers registering for these courses must notify the education department’s training division at the date of submission. Once a teacher has been chosen by one of these institutions, he or she may apply for financing under the EDMC’s funding of foreign training (FFT) initiative. The EDMC will fund the first year of training for two instructors at a reputable international institution,” he said.
Additionally, Anand said that a teacher may participate in the plan just once throughout their career. “Applicants must be under the age of 42 and have an excellent professional record with a minimum grade of very good’ in their past five years of service book records. This programme is open to instructors admitted to the top 100 colleges and institutes.

In these foreign colleges, these instructors may study themes such as public education, special education, educational development, and the use of digital technologies in education. Each applicant is eligible to receive a maximum of 75 lakh in financial assistance. This financial help will cover the chosen applicants’ tuition, housing, books, and living expenses,” he said.
Rajiv Kumar, head of the EDMC’s education committee, echoed similar sentiments, stating that if a teacher does not finish the overseas diploma/degree/doctoral course, the individual would be required to repay the full sum to the corporation.
“This initiative is open to instructors with a proven track record in the classroom. Minimum service as a normal teacher of ten years is required to enrol in this higher education programme. The chosen applicants will be required to sign an assurance that they would not seek further financial support from any other institution throughout their international training course,” he said.
