The Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) has issued a communication to the Secretary, School Education Department, that 15 teachers from 13 districts in the State have been selected for the award. The President, Pratibha Patil, will honour them at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on September 5, Teacher's Day. The award carries a certificate of merit, a cash prize of Rs. 25,000 and a silver medal.
