The Government of Telangana has decided to recruit Vidya Volunteers (Education Volunteers) across the government schools in Telangana state. An additional 439 vidya volunteers will be recruited soon by the authorities.
The students in Telangana are fighting for the release of DSC notification. The Government has decided to appoint vidya volunteers as the process of recruitment of regular teachers is time-consuming.
The Vidya Volunteers will temporarily fill the existing vacancies of SGTs (secondary grade teachers, school assistants and language pandits). Highest number of volunteers will be recruited in Joglumba district (56) followed by Kumaram Bheem district (50) and Kothagudem district (50). In Hyderabad, 34 Vidya Volunteers will be recruited.
Government of Telangana has appointed more than 8000 Vidya Volunteers last year. The present appointments are part of the decision to appoint 11428 Vidya Volunteers in 31 districts.
