On October 29, 2023, the Bihar government decided to provide accommodation to 5 lakh teachers in the state. Recently, the result of 1 lakh 22 thousand teachers was released by Bihar Public Service Commission.

Key Points:

  • Apart from those teachers, the state government has decided to provide accommodation to about 5 lakh teachers already working. Arrangements will be made to stay near the school so that there is no delay in reaching school.
  • Houses will be rented by the Bihar government for teachers' residence up to the villages of the district, sub-division, block, and panchayat. Along with this, even if the real estate company builds a house and provides it, the government will also take it.
  • The Education Department has asked interested landlords and real estate companies how many flats and houses can be made available immediately, as well as how many additional ones can be built in the next one or two years. Instructions have been given to make its list available on the website.
  • The Education Department spends approximately Rs 33 thousand crores on teachers' salaries every year. Of this, 8 percent, i.e., approximately Rs 2500 crore, is spent on housing.
  • According to the Education Department, after deducting the housing allowance, this money will be given to the houses taken on lease and to the real estate companies.
  • The Education Department is working on two models to provide housing facilities to teachers in remote areas. Firstly, proposals have been sought from the owners of houses and multi-story buildings as to how many houses they can provide in which district, block, and gram panchayat, which are already made. The education department can hire him immediately.
  • Second - Proposals have been sought from real estate companies or other interested land owners for constructing multi-storey buildings and buildings in the district, sub-division and block headquarters. Only teachers of the department will remain here. Private companies will build these buildings at their own expense. The education department will take them on long-term lease and pay rent every month.
