Earlier the Ministry of HRD had issued guidelines for Selection of Teachers for National Awards. Teachers of Government schools can send their entries directly for National Award for Teachers. This is a new initiative, as earlier entries were selected by the state governments. The purpose of National Award to Teachers is to celebrate the unique contribution of some of the finest teachers in the country and to honor those teachers, who through their commitment have not only improved the quality of school education but also enriched the lives of their students.
