The state government in the Department of School Education decided to proceed with the provincialisation of schools in tea garden areas on the orders of the Governor of Assam, with the condition that the services of the existing teachers employed by the tea garden management will not be provincialised. “However, these teachers may continue to serve in the same school under the pay role of the concerned tea garden as of today,” the official statement said.

According to an official notification from the school department, two teacher positions will be created for each LP school, three teacher positions for each ME school, and five teacher positions and one headmaster position for each high school. The cabinet resolved to provincialize the schools in March.

The notification goes on to list the benefits these schools will receive under the PM-POSHAN scheme, stating that “2 (two) posts of teachers will be created for each of the 419 LP Schools, 3 (three) posts of teachers will be created for each of the 2 ME schools, and 5 (five) teachers and 1 (one) Head Master will be created for the High School.” Students in these schools will be entitled to free textbooks, PM-POSHAN (Mid-Day Meal), free uniforms, and other privileges. The hiring of teachers will begin as soon as possible.”

The government has directed relevant District Elementary Education Officers and School Inspectors to ensure that newly appointed teachers and existing tea garden engaged instructors have a good working relationship. They will also improve academic coordination and create a more harmonious environment in the schools.
