In Bihar, teachers from first to 12th class will now be reinstated through the commission. For this, the commission will conduct examination. Any candidate will be able to appear in the examination maximum three times. Which commission will get the responsibility of conducting the exam, the state government will decide later. It may be known that since 2006, teachers were being appointed in the state through gram panchayats and municipal bodies. After 17 years, a major change has been made in it.

Also, only permanent residents of Bihar will be able to apply. Pre-employed teachers will also be able to appear in this exam if they wish. For this, they will get conditional relaxation in age limit up to a maximum of 10 years. The new appointment rules have come into effect from Monday itself. After today, the appointment of any teacher will be done only through the examination of the commission. Teachers appointed through the commission will be called employees of the state government. It may be known that till now teachers were appointed through Gram Panchayat and Municipal bodies. It has also been clarified in the rules that it will not be mandatory for teachers appointed and working before the year 2012, who pass the efficiency test, to pass the teacher eligibility test.

50 percent reservation for women

Like before, in this rule also, women will get 50 percent reservation in the appointment of teachers of classes I to VIII. Apart from this, the provisions of reservation implemented by the General Administration Department will also be applicable in this. Under this, women will get 35 percent reservation from ninth to 12th. Now there will be district cadre of teachers, but inter-district transfer of teachers will also be possible.

On the other hand, since the year 2006 till now, more than four and a half lakh teachers have been appointed through gram panchayats and municipal bodies.

Questions were constantly being raised on the recruitment process

Many questions were being raised on the recruitment process through gram panchayats and municipal bodies implemented since 2006. There was also a demand for change in this. The biggest problem was that all the panchayats and municipal bodies were separate units, due to which a candidate used to submit applications at dozens of places in a single recruitment process. On the day of counselling, the candidates could not understand in which unit they should appear. Due to this, there were many problems in selection and then appointment. Also, panchayat and body representatives were accused of irregularities. The planning unit did not provide documents for verification of certificates.

State employees’ dearness allowance increased by four percent

Dearness allowance of state government employees and pensioners has been increased from 38 percent to 42 percent. This will come into force with effect from January 1, 2023. The state cabinet has given its approval. This decision will cost the state government an additional Rs 1,690 crore annually. More than 7.5 lakh workers in the state will get its benefit.
