Bhubaneswar: School and Mass Education Minister Rabi Narayan Nanda on Wednesday announced in the Assembly that a new grant-in-aid policy for all Block grant teachers would come into effect from April.
“A detailed announcement about the new grant-in-aid policy for all Block grant teachers would be made in the second week of March,” Nanda said.
