GUWAHATI, Dec. 20, 2023 (TBINN)
Assam Government has barred teachers and non-teaching staff working in provincialised secondary schools from studying further or obtaining any degree while in service without prior permission of the competent authorities, an official said today.
‘Provincialised schools’ means those institutes in which the government has taken over all liabilities of a non-government school. The government generally takes over only those institutes that are in remote places or serve a backward community or where there are no government schools.
In a letter to the Inspector of Schools across the state, Secondary Education Director Mamata Hojai cited an old clause from the Assam Civil Services (Conduct) Rules, 1965 and to implement it strictly.
