Gangtok, May 23 (IPR): Chief Minister Shri Prem Singh Tamang unveiled a new three-year policy to regularise ad hoc teachers appointed under the land donor scheme. The announcement occurred during today’s Education Department’s Outreach program at Chintan Bhawan.
The Chief Minister announced that sixty-six landowners have been honored with job appointment letters as a gesture of appreciation for their generous donation of land for the construction of government schools.
Furthermore, he highlighted the urgency of expediting the land mutation process to ensure transparency. While adhering to existing government regulations, job regularization is usually granted after eight years of service. However, the Chief Minister declared a special exemption of five years for the land donors.
Similarly, the Chief Minister has unveiled a unique initiative known as the Mid-Day Meal Program, aimed at recruiting women between the ages of 40 and 60 as cooks in 767 schools. These dedicated individuals will be remunerated with a salary ranging from Rs 5000 to Rs 6000.
Earlier, 437 ad-hoc teachers throughout the State were granted regularization orders by the Chief Minister.
