GUWAHJATI, Nov 3: "As many as 1,800 posts of Hindi teachers are vacant in the secondary schools in the state and these posts should be filled up soon with Prabin-passed eligible local candidates," said Mission Director of Sarba Siksha Abhiyan Assam (SSAA) Thaneswar Malakar in the 77th foundation day of Asom Rashtra Bhasha Prachar Samiti (ARBPS) in the city today.
Malakar said: "Though, the government conducted interviews for the appointment of Hindi teachers last year, many candidates from outside the state were appointed due to lack of eligibility as Bachelor's degree or Master's degree in Hindi. It is well known that such candidates are rare in the state and so the government had to take candidates from outside the state. I, therefore, recommend that the Prabin-passed local candidates should be treated equivalent to Hindi graduates."
Malakar also said: "Last year, 75,000 students appeared in the Hindi examitions in the 700 centres of ARBPS, which is a good sign for us. I believe, it will increase the spread of Hindi language in the state."
The Sasoni Hindi Vidyalaya of Dibrugarh district got the award of best school in the foundation day of ARBPS, and the samiti also awarded the five best students in the annual examitions of Prabodh, Bisharad and Prabin this year. They also awarded the highest mark holder in Hindi as elective subject in HSLC examition this year.
