Teaching Force of Chattisgarh

The Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) has set up a 'smart' school in Kondagaon district 210 km from capital of Raipur in Chattisgarh to help children whose studies were disrupted due to naxal violence. About 50 children are taught by police personnel with the help of YouTube videos and online education portals. As the mobile signals are weak, the jawans put their mobiles at a height through bamboo poles and the network is connected through Wi-Fi hotspot facility to the laptop. A projector is used to screen the video content and classes are held in the evening. It is conducted by trained graduates from the police force. The children are also shown animation movies and basic learning videos during these sessions. The troops posted in the region are part of the anti-Maoist operations grid. They are also learning the local Halbi dialect from the students.  The ITBP was raised in 1962 in the aftermath of the Chinese aggression and its primary task is to guard the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China.
