Linking Promotion of Teachers to Performance of Students

Linking Promotion of Teachers to Performance of Students

There is no such proposal at present to link promotion of teachers to performance of students. Recruitment and service conditions of teachers are in the domain of State Governments/UT Administrations. However, The Central Government has a scheme of National Award to teachers to recognize good performance of teachers across the country. School enrolment campaigns are launched by States at the start of the school academic year for awareness generation to enrol out-of-school children in schools and to reach out hitherto un-reached children in remote areas, working children, girls, children belonging to SC and ST communities, and children in difficult circumstances.

The performance of students is related to multiple factors including school and home environment. The Central Government has taken various steps to ensure teacher accountability in government and aided schools.

. The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has developed Performance Indicators for Elementary Education (PINDICS) to track teacher performance and attendance in Government schools. PINDICS have been shared with State Governments/UTs to assess teacher’s performance.

Additionally, teachers attendance is being monitored by States/UTs through School Management Committees/School Management Development Committees/ Block Resource Centres/Clusters Resource Centres and in some cases by installing bio-metric attendance system etc.

The Central Government has launched the ‘Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching’ in December, 2014 with a vision to comprehensively address all issues related to teachers, teaching, teacher preparation, professional development, curriculum design, research in pedagogy and developing effective pedagogy.

As per the mandate of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act 2009, Government of India has notified the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) as the Academic Authority at the national level for teacher education and qualification. NCTE has prescribed teacher qualifications for various levels. It has also made it mandatory that all persons holding teacher qualifications as laid down by the NCTE must also pass a teacher eligibility test (TET).These two steps by NCTE are widely seen as efforts to improve the standards of teaching with eventual positive impact on quality of education.

This information was given by the Union Human Resource Development Minister, Smt. Smriti Zubin Irani today in a written reply to a Rajya Sabha question.

Use of Hindi Language in Courts

Article 348 (1) of the Constitution of India provides that all proceedings in the Supreme Court and in every High court shall be in English Language until Parliament by law otherwise provides.

Under Article 348 (2), the Governor of the State may, with the previous consent of the President, authorize the use of the Hindi language or any other language used for any official purpose of the State, in the proceedings of the High Court having its principal seat in that State provided that decrees, judgments or orders passed by such High Courts shall be in English. Section 7 of the Official Languages Act, 1963, provides that the use of Hindi or official language of a State in addition to the English language may be authorized, with the consent of the President of India, by the Governor of the State for purpose of judgments etc. made by the High Court for that State.


Government had taken up with the Supreme Court of India the proposals of the Governments of Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka seeking consent of the President of India for allowing regional languages in the proceedings of their High Courts. However, the Full Court of the Supreme Court disapproved these proposals.

The provision of optional use of Hindi in proceedings has already been made in the High Courts of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.

(ii) if the review referred to in (i) or (ii) above has not been conducted, after the review at any other time as the Central Government deems fit in respect of such Member.

(iii) The above provisions have been reiterated from time to time and recently vide DoPT’s O.M. No. 25013/02/2005-AIS-II dated 28.06.2012 and 03.08.2015, and O.M. No. 25013/1/2013-Estt.A-IV dated 11.09.2015.

The Central Government has also from time to time been stressing on the need to complete disciplinary cases expeditiously and monitoring the same.
