Puducherry District Institute, Puducherry


Puducherry District Institute is currently focused along three main dimensions:

  • Supporting Teacher supporters): Development of teacher supporters namely Block Resource Coordinators (BRCs) and Cluster Resource Coordinators (CRCs

  • Communication and Engagement): Networking with State and Civil Society Organizations and build capacity among parents to contribute to the schools

  • Information and Research Centre): Development of Activity Center, development of informal teachers’ forums and Library

Currently we are working in these broad areas:
  • Alignment of thought amongst the various institutions working towards achieving quality in education
  • Formation of an academic Resource Group and its proper follow up
  • Transformation of existing academic support institutions in Vibrant Resource Centers
  • To form an understanding on the linkages between community and schools through VEC and SMC

This has led to the following key programs:
  • Capacity Enhancement of Functionaries (CEF)
  • Learning and Activity Centre (LAC)
  • Build capacity among parents to contribute to the school


The Library and Activity Centre has a vast collection of resources in the genres of Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Education, Governance, etc., which includes books for children also. LAC also acts a true activity centre for local community. The LAC subscribes to good number of print journals and magazines, newspapers along with online access to international journals and databases. The collection includes audio visual materials, reports, data sets, teaching aids, etc. The LAC is automated using Koha and catalog is accessible online. Current Awareness Service, Reference Service, Document Delivery Service, Inter Library Loan, Photocopying, etc. provided to the users. The LAC has computing facility for walk in users.

LAC conducts several activities such as film review and Discussions for informal group of teachers; organizing training for the school children on “Computer literacy”, etc. on a regular basis.
