In a significant move post-Lok Sabha election, the government is set to revert more than 100 Mahatma Gandhi English medium schools, previously converted from Hindi medium, back to Hindi medium. The State Education Directorate has forwarded proposals to the state government in this regard.

According to sources, Udaipur has submitted proposals for over 6 schools, with plans to send proposals for more than 20 additional schools soon. Notably, during the Gehlot government's tenure, 3559 Mahatma Gandhi English medium schools were established by converting Hindi medium schools in the state. Among the operational schools in Udaipur, three are situated in the city: Raja Nagar, Sundarvas, and Bilochistan. Additionally, rural areas feature schools like Rakampura, Gogunda, and Khempura.

The decision to revert English medium schools follows the government's scrutiny of their effectiveness. In recent developments, two schools in Bikaner were switched back to Hindi medium after failing to meet criteria set by Education Minister Madan Dilawar. Reasons behind the reversal include inadequate facilities, a majority of teachers from Hindi medium backgrounds, a high vacancy rate compared to approved positions, and a decline in student enrollment following the switch to English medium.

To streamline the process, the department has issued a standardized format for proposals. It includes essential details such as the school's previous name, student enrollment, teacher vacancies, approved positions, and School Management Committee (SMC) information.
