The MCD Education Committee chairman Mahinder Nagpal on Tuesday said the civic body has for the first time invited applications online for the engagement of 1,600 teachers on contract basis since the introduction of the e-governance system.

Dr. Nagpal said the whole process of appointment will be online right from inviting applications to declaration of results. The civic body would be engaging 1,370 primary teachers, 215 nursery teachers, 10 primary Bengali teachers and one primary Tamil teacher. Eligible candidates can apply for the posts from August 25 to September 8 online only, he added.

The age limit for the posts has been increased to 30 years from 27 years after making changes in the recruitments rules of primary teachers. This is expected to benefit thousands of eligible teachers who were otherwise overage.
