The EM further said that that the appointment has been made as per merit basis of the interview conducted in 2022.

The CEM while handing over the appointment letters to the candidates said as envisaged in para 4.11 of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, as wherever possible, the medium of instruction upto Class 5 should be with one’s mother tongue.

“Keeping this in mind the KAAC has appointed KMTs and KLTs so that at the foundation level children get to learn through their own mother tongue. The KAAC is making all efforts for the development of Karbi language,” the CEM added.
