Sources informed that teachers assigned for internal assessment, practical examination, project works examination might get a solution to their problems in this management council meeting. The council may give relaxation in rules to the teachers deployed for these examinations. Teachers will now not have to clear the NET-SET examination which was made necessary earlier by RTMNU. Teachers will be deployed only for a year and teachers scoring 55 percent marks in the related subject can be eligible to conduct these examinations. According to existing rules, only permanent teachers were eligible to conduct these examinations.
