The Cycle Distribution Scheme of PMC, implemented in corporation schools, has recently been in news for all the wrong reasons – mainly the delay in distributing cycles. In this scheme, all students regardless of gender, caste studying in class 7-10 and living at a distance of more than 2 km from the school premises are eligible for receiving the cycles. Schools are responsible for providing the student list, PMC purchases the required cycles and the cycles are distributed by the school administration itself. This scheme was introduced in the general body in the year 2010, but it took 3 years for the scheme to take get the approval and take the form it currently has. Even after the bill got passed and approved several issues led the scheme not be functional for another year like lack of funds, election restrictions etc. Students who had given the necessary information to their schools had received the cycles only at the end of the academic session of 2013-14, during the distribution of the result. The delay in the process made the beneficiaries of then class 10 not being able to use the cycle at all, as they had got over with their school classes till then.
