The 15 awards are reserved for Sanskrit Teachers of Sanskrit Pathshalas ard Tolls and 5 awards for Arabic/Persian Teachers of Madrasas which cannot be allocat1Ed Slate-wise due to their limited number. Selection of teachers for these awards 1'i I, therefore, be made out of all the names that would be recommended by variojL s States/Union Territories. At least two names may be recommended for these categories of teachers. From past experience, it is noticed that recommendations rpr these awards are not adequate. You are, therefore, requested to make special effor s to locate suitable SANSKRIT AND ARABIC/PERSIAN TEACHERS OF INSTITUTIO~S RUN ON TRADITIONAL LINES SO THAT THE AWARDS DO NOT LAPSE. There 2\1e a large number of traditional Pathshalas/Tolls/Madrasas functioning in different parts )f the country. However, ·since they may be functioning in an informal way or do not corre to the notice of the Education authorities, special efforts need to be made to identify them and 'recommend their teachers for the National Awards, if they fulfill the necessary conditions.

4. It has been noticed that Sanskrit/Arabic/Persian teachers working in requh rr schools are generally not consider~d for National Award by the States due to a misunderstanding that such teachers would be eligible for awards from out of the 15 and 5 awards set apart for Sanskrit and Arabic/Persian Teachers of tradition 11 Pathshalas and Madrasas. It is requested that Sanskrit and Arabic/Persian teachers working in regular Primary/Secondary schools should also be considered for National Award under the categories of Primary and Secondary school teachers.

5. You are also requested to give suitable representation to lady teachers while making your recommendations as it has been noticed that sufficient number of lacy teachers are not recommended by the States. It may be noted that for class roe, lll teachers only 15 years of regular teaching experience is required. while for Principals/Headmasters 20 years of regular teaching service is required. However for the Special award category, in case of teachers, 10 years of regular teaching experience and for Principals/Headmasters. 15 years of regular teaching experience is required.

6. While recommending the teachers, the State Committee/Central Award Committee are to compulsorily and categorically state the SPECIAL OR UNIQUE attribute of each teacher on the basis of which their names have been. recommended. Lack of such information may render the teacher(s) ineligible for the award.

7. A brief citation is required to be attached for teachers being recommended under the categories for special awards. If no suitable candidate is recommended, the allocated special awards shall not be transferred to general category. The other eligibility conditions as also the selection procedure will remain unchanged. Observing teachers should, therefore, be encouraged in the interest of education by recommending sufficient number of such teachers who may themselves have disabilities and also those who have done commendable work for education of children with disabilities.

(i) A copy of the minutes of the meeting of the State/UTs/Organisation Selection Committee finalising the recommendations may also invariably be sent m original duly signed by all committees members. This is important and may please be noted for compliance.
