    Regularisation of temporary teachers should be corruption free. The pay difference is reported to be more than Rs 20000! Teachers should stay at the place of posting. Schools should have all necessary facilities including midday meals- kitchen with gas connection and enough number of toilets with insitu water supply. Strict monitoring of every aspect is a must for effective education.
