Significant progress has been made in the implementation of the Viveka Scheme, a state government initiative aimed at constructing special classrooms for government schools in Dakshina Kannada. Launched on Children’s Day in 2022, the scheme has seen remarkable achievements, with 84% of the sanctioned classrooms already completed.


Out of the total 288 classrooms allotted across all assembly constituencies in Dakshina Kannada, 241 classrooms have been successfully constructed and are ready for use. Anandh K, CEO of Dakshina Kannada zilla panchayat, provided insights into the project’s progress, highlighting that work on the remaining classrooms is underway, with completion expected in the coming months.

Challenges such as space constraints have led to delays in the construction of some classrooms, with discussions ongoing to address these issues. Despite hurdles, the government has invested nearly Rs 41 crore in Dakshina Kannada towards this endeavor.

Each assembly constituency was allocated a minimum of 35 Viveka classrooms, with additional classrooms provided based on demand and student enrollment. Furthermore, government pre-university colleges in the district were allotted 60 classrooms, with progress being made in their construction as well.

Despite some delays due to the model code of conduct and funding issues, efforts are underway to expedite the completion of Viveka classrooms, ensuring improved educational infrastructure for students in Dakshina Kannada.
