Honourable Madam,
I admire the new method of selection of TTC as well BEd teachers. Thank you. But please consider seniority and experience also for HSc and College Teachers. Please. It is an earnest request. Please consider UGC Grant to courses atleast upto the year 1995 or 2000. Please.... When D>A for Govt staff are going on increasing it is pitiable that self-financed staff are not given atleast 50% grant. Please........
Thank you
Yours Truly,
