In a move that is sure to bring cheer to thousands of aspiring teacher candidates, the Nitish Kumar-led government has taken a significant decision in their favor. The state government has approved a new education manual that paves the way for the seventh phase of teacher reinstatement.
According to the new manual, teachers will now be considered government employees, which will bring them a host of benefits and job security. This decision will come as a huge relief to the thousands of teachers who have been waiting for reinstatement for a long time.
Another significant aspect of the new manual is the minimum age requirement for appointment as a teacher, which has been fixed at 21 years. This will ensure that only candidates who are mature and well-equipped to handle the responsibilities of a teacher are appointed to the position.
In addition to these measures, the Nitish government has also announced an increase in the dearness allowance for fixed pensioners from 38% to 42%. This will provide a much-needed financial boost to retired teachers who have been struggling to make ends meet.
The decision has been welcomed by teacher candidates across the state, who have been protesting for years demanding job security and better working conditions. The Nitish government’s proactive step towards resolving these issues has been widely appreciated by teachers’ unions and other stakeholders in the education sector.
Overall, this move is a positive development for the education sector in Bihar, and it is hoped that it will lead to improved quality of education and better job opportunities for aspiring teachers in the state.
