Assam education minister Ranoj Pegu distributed appointment letters to 280 specially-abled candidates for the post of regular teachers in different schools of various districts of the state under the Directorate of Elementary Education.
The appointment letters were distributed during a programme held at the Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Convention and Training Centre in Guwahati on Tuesday.
A total of 193 candidates have been appointed in lower primary schools, 75 in upper primary and 12 as science teachers in upper primary schools.
Pegu in his speech said that under the leadership and guidance of Assam's Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, a revolutionary change has come about where teachers have been appointed by organizing Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) examinations in a free and fair manner.
He asked all the candidates to think positively and move forward with an aim to serve the nation by their profession of teaching. He further stated that the education department has been working relentlessly for the infrastructural development of schools to ensure quality education.
