Teachers appointed by the Bihar Public Service Commission in government engineering and polytechnic colleges will now teach students in government schools. These teachers will cover subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Maths, and English. The Department of Science, Technology, and Technical Education has developed an action plan under the Pahal Initiative to achieve this goal. The department aims to ensure that students in government schools and rural areas benefit from the expertise of these teachers.

The primary objective of this initiative is to guide students from the matriculation level, enhancing their academic performance and preparation for competitive exams. To expedite these efforts, Dr. S. Siddharth, Additional Chief Secretary of the Education Department, and Lokesh Kumar Singh, Secretary of the Science, Technology, and Technical Education Department, have sent letters to the principals of all government engineering and polytechnic colleges, as well as to District Education Officers.

The letters emphasize the need to publicize the Pahal Initiative in local schools and neighboring areas to maximize student participation. District Education Officers and principals of technical institutions are urged to work in coordination. As part of the Pahal Mission, a special one-hour class will be conducted in engineering colleges and polytechnics for students from 8th to 12th grade from surrounding areas and schools.

The Secretary of the Department of Science, Technology, and Technical Education has instructed principals to prepare a roster for the teachers. These classes will be scheduled for one hour before 9 am or after 4 pm. According to the roster, students will attend classes in Mathematics, Science, Physics, Chemistry, and English and will also receive career guidance.
