Punjab starts recruitment process for 8000 teachers
The Punjab Government has started recruitment process for 8000 teachers across the state.
Talking to mediapersons today, Education Minister Sikander Singh Maluka said the Punjab Government was committed to provide education to every child. To meet this target, it had already demanded the data of vacant posts in the schools.
He said that to ensure the 100 per cent attendance of teachers in schools, the Education Department had made checking teams which would randomly check the presence of teachers in the schools besides checking the admission record of schools.
He said that it had been found that some teachers had shown bogus admissions in their schools to save their postings, which would be dealt with strictness. These teams would also check the quality of Mid Day meals.
He also said that strict action would be taken against the teachers having bad results. Orders had been issued to all higher officials to make sure that no teacher should take part in political activities even as he or she belonged to a political family of higher department official.
