Released by the Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang-Golay, the gazette mentions that state government will now annually regularize the service of teachers, who successfully completes 8 years of continuous service.

The then leader in power even lacked courage to face the appeal for regularisation.” – added the CM.

According to the policy, all recruitments for an ad-hoc teachers of all categories shall be done only by Sikkim State Teachers’ Recruitment Board (SSTRB).
