The Scheme undertaken by the government to promote science education is a well planned strategy as education in the north-east should be brought at par with the other states of India. But the Assam Government should also look into the fact that appointment of such teachers should be made as per merit basis as illegal anomalies arise on due appointment of teachers. The amount that has been alloted for such programmes should be utilized to the maximum and corruption should be barred. An important fact is that the appointed teaching staff should be paid duly and with good remuneration so such courses could be highly ranked by the students.Merit of the teachers should be given prior emphasis in case of such appoinments dealing with such innovative projects.The citizens would Look forward to such plans ahead with great zeal and enthusiasm.
