Chandigarh, September 24 –Haryana Chief Minister Mr Manohar Lal said that the state government has decided to adopt a transparent recruitment policy for teachers. In future, all the recruitment of teachers will be strictly on merit basis.
The Chief Minister along with Education Minister Mr Ram Bilas Sharma was presiding over the meeting of representatives of Haryana Rajkiya Adhyapak Parishad and Haryana Education Advisory Committee here today.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister emphasized the need of organizing meeting of Teacher-Parents Association regularly. He said that the school management should fix time for these meetings as per the convenience of parents. He said that in order to improve the education level in schools, the support of retired officers and working employees would be sought along with the support of other learned people of the society. The state government is soon formulating a new education policy where valuable suggestions of educationists and other experts would be included, he added.
The Chief Minister said that in view of maintaining the playground in schools, vyayaamshalas are also being set up in villages. The facility of internet is also being provided in rural areas so as to provide the rural population facilities at par with the cities.
