The Department of School Education and Literacy under the Ministry of Education has consistently arranged an annual nationwide event on Teachers’ Day. This event is dedicated to presenting the National Awards to exceptional teachers across the nation.

From this year, the ambit of the National Teachers’ Award has been expanded to include teachers of the Department of Higher Education and the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, the official statement added.

According to reports, this year, the awards will be presented to 50 school teachers, 13 educators from higher education, and 12 instructors affiliated with the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.

Every year, on September 5, the nation observes National Teachers’ Day in honour of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan’s birth anniversary.

The National Teachers’ Award serves the purpose of commemorating the distinct contributions of educators within the nation. It aims to recognise and pay tribute to teachers who, through their unwavering commitment and dedication, have not only enhanced the quality of education but have also enriched the lives of their students.

The ministry established three distinct Independent National Juries, consisting of eminent individuals, to oversee the selection of teachers.

Furthermore, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with the recipients of the National Teachers’ Award 2023 on Monday.

“Met our nation’s exemplary educators who have been honoured with the National Teachers’ Awards. Their dedication to shaping young minds and their unwavering commitment to excellence in education is very inspiring. In their classrooms, they are scripting a brighter future for India’s youth,” says PM Modi.
