The government has regularised services of 1,000 teachers of job-oriented courses (JoC) in the State. These teachers have been working in various institutions on an ad-hoc basis for over a decade. Addressing presspersons here on Monday, Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Visweshwara Hegde Kageri said services of another 2,000 JoC teachers would be regularised soon. A panel headed by Additional Chief Secretary will hold a meeting in a few days to regularise the services of 2,000 teachers, who have been working in various private institutes, he said. The decision would create an additional financial burden of Rs. 45 crore a year, he said.
