Statement of Objects And Reasons
It is proposed to provide for the better organisation of general education in Kerala State and give it a statutory basis. The Bill seeks to achieve this purpose.
Financial Memorandum.

The Bill aims at giving a statutory basis to the existing practices and principles of education. As such no extra financial commitment is involved except for two sections-Sections 16 and 17. It is difficult to assess the financial implications of the action proposed to be taken under section 16. The intention is to take over all Primary Schools in one district in 1957-1958. A provision of 5 lakhs has been made for this purpose in the current year’s Budget. The extra cost involved in the implementation of the proposal contained in section 17 can be met by internal re-appropriation.
