For tea garden schools, the Assam government will provide around 800 additional teaching positions.

Assam govt to create over 800 new teacher posts for tea garden schools

Assam education minister Ranoj Pegu on Wednesday said that the government will spend Rs 33 crore to impart quality education to the students of the tea garden communities.

More than 800 new teaching posts will be created by the Assam government to appoint them in 422 tea garden schools. The education minister Ranoj Pegu said the state government will provincialise the schools managed by the authorities of those estates.

Provincialisation means the government will take over all liabilities of a non-government school, Ranoj Pegu said in a press conference.

“The service of existing teachers will not be provincialised, they will continue to work under the existing norms. We will create additional posts of teachers and will be appointing them as government teachers,” PTI quoted Ranoj Pegu as saying.

RS 33 CRORE TO BE SPENT ON QUALITY EDUCATION

Further, Pegu also said that the state government will spend Rs 33 crore for this purpose to impart quality education to the students of the tea garden communities.

Moreover, the Cabinet has also announced sanctioning Rs 1,000 crore to support entrepreneurs from a poor financial background, said tourism minister Jayanta Malla Baruah.

In order to “transform” over two lakh unemployed youths from BPL and low-income households into job creators, the government will invest Rs 5,000 crore over the next three years.
