The newly-appointed 31,277 assistant teachers of government primary schools will be given their first postings by October-end to maintain the prescribed teacher-student ratio.
This will be in conformity with the provisions of the Free and Compulsory Child Education Rights Rules, 2011.
A circular to this effect was issued to all the district magistrates and director of basic education by the additional chief secretary (basic education) on Wednesday, asking them to maintain transparency and adhere to the rules.

Counselling of these teachers at district level will be conducted from October 26 to 28, allotment of schools will be done on October 29 and 30 while the teachers will have to join at their allotted schools from October 31 to November 3.
It may be mentioned here that against the total vacancies of 69,000 teachers, the state government recently appointed 31,277 teachers while appointments for the remaining posts are in the process.
