Giving this information to media persons at the Secretariat, MLC G Srinivasulu Naidu said that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy had agreed to relax the cited age limit keeping in view the attempt to increase the literacy rate.
The petition was submitted to the project director, Rajiv Vidya Mission under Sarva Siksha Abhiyan who has favoured appointment of non formal education instructors as cluster resource persons with B Ed, D Ed qualifications after the counselling was held at the district level without a formal test.
