  • Additionally, a decision was made to provide a 2500 rupee incentive amount to Panchayat Sevaks, amounting to an annual expenditure of 52 crores.

For this purpose, Selection Committees will be formed at the block level. Trained teachers will receive 200 rupees per hour and 600 rupees per working day, while untrained teachers will receive 120 rupees per hour and 360 rupees per working day. They may work up to 25 days per month.
