Retirement for teachers who failed to prove ability: MP Education Min Prabhuram Chaudhari

The Education Minister of Madhya Pradesh Prabhuram Chaudhari has decided to take strict actions towards those teachers who failed in the exam conducted by the Department to test their ability. In press conference, Prabhuram said, "We gave retirement to 16 teachers under 20-50 formula, 2 teachers are under review. This is not a punishment but a rule that whoever, be it teacher or clerk who is not able to give his/her service, can be given retirement." He further said, "We took action against a total of 84 teachers to provide quality education for the children of Madhya Pradesh." Teachers who didn't fall into 20-50 formula are those who have not served for 20 years and are younger than 50 years.
