Panchayat Teachers or 'Niyojit' teachers, who cleared their competency tests, are called 'Exclusive Teachers' in Bihar and they enjoy regular government employee status.

"Around 6 lakh government teachers in the state have so far (from July 30, 2024, to till date) attended their compulsory in-service residential training programme. But there are still a large number of government teachers who have not attended it so far despite repeated instructions. If they fail to attend the training programme before June 30, 2024, they will not be entitled for the next annual increment on their salaries," the letter read.
