3.  You may take help of NCERT in the quality control of these kits.

In addition to the above they have also requested to follow the following guidelines scrupulously in selecting the Books etc. purchasing under School Annual Grants:
·        When book reading is going down steeply, only the books that are reprinted many times standout as useful and popular books.  It can be a right guideline to purchase the books that are reprinted more than three times.

·        General books in Physical & Social Sciences and Literature should be preferred.

·        Books that inculcate a sense of patriotism and love for is culture may be procure.

·        Books on great Nation builders and National leaders that inspire younger generation for a better future India need to be included i.e., Vivekananda, JC Bose, APJ Abdul Kalam etc.

·        Books that inculcate human values among children need to be included.

·        In schools, youngsters are in formative stage and the books, which impart knowledge about their life, will serve definite purpose than the books that impart general knowledge about the outside world.  Books, which are useful in day-to-day life, are to be preferred.

·        Most of the youngsters entertain negative feelings like shyness, fear, anxiety, low opinion about themselves.  To help young students to come out of such feelings and to build confidence, all sensible books on personality development are to be preferred.

·        Books that are popular and sold in good number in bookshops are to be preferred to the books that are mainly published for supply to libraries and other institutions only.

·        Books which help both parents and teachers alike, to adopt the right attitude while dealing with growing minds that explain the behaviour of teenagers and the best possibilities to deal with them are to be preferred.

·        Books, which help youngsters to understand basic techniques of preparing for exams and to face them successfully, are to be preferred.

·        Most of the rural students are haunted with anxiety, tension, insecurity, inadequacy feelings and easily get into depression.  Books, which explain at great length how to understand abnormal behaviour in the early stage and the methods to correct it and suggest the ways to develop healthy attitude, should be procured.

·        Since two decades quality fiction is not being published in Andhra Pradesh.  Hence purchase of fiction books can be limited to 10% of total purchases.

Hence, after examining the recommendations of the Committee in detail, the Commissioner and Director of School Education & Ex-Officio Project Director, RMSA is pleased to approve their recommendations for utilizing the School Annual Grants in-to-to. Therefore all the Head Masters/ Principals & Chairmen of School Management Development Committees of identified Secondary Schools & all the District Educational Officer & Ex-Officio District Project Coordinators in the State are requested to follow the above guidelines strictly while utilizing the School Annual Grants released from this office every year from time to time. Any deviation in diverting the funds from one component to another component or otherwise will be viewed seriously.
This has the approval of Commissioner and Director of School Education & Ex-Officio Project Director, RMSA, A.P, Hyderabad.
