Non Formal Education Monitoring & Evaluation Unit

NFEIs exist in private rooms of private houses/premises in villages, small towns, suburban areas & slums of cities across Punjab. In such a scenario there is always a very high probability that NFEI would not operate as per PC-I requisites (dysfunctional or ghost institutions). Resultantly target population would not be served satisfactorily and public finances for the needful would go to waste. An efficient monitoring & evaluation system, as staffed with reliable cum capable staff & as equipped with modern monitoring & evaluation IT based systems, is essentially needed to monitor NFEI to ensure that same function optimally instant model has been based on the monitoring system device cum implemented by School Education & Health Departments.
