National Awards

The scheme of National Awards for Teachers was started in the year 1958-59 with the object of raising the prestige of teachers and public recognition to the  meritorious services of outstanding teachers working in  Primary, Middle and High Secondary teachers. In 1967-68 the scope of the scheme was enlarged  to cover teachers of Sanskrit Pathshalas, Tolls etc. run on traditional lines. In 1976 the scheme was further enlarged to cover  Arabic/Persian teachers of madrasas run on traditional lines. From the  Award  year  1993 the Scheme has  further  been enlarged  to cover teachers from Sainik Schools, Navodaya Vidyalyas and schools run by the Atomic Energy  Education Society. Earlier CBSE had been allocated a quota of 10 awards -2 for each zone subject  to availability in case of shortfall to recommendations from  the entitled States/UTs and organizations. Each award carries with it a certificate of merit, a cash award money of Rs.25,000/- and a silver medal. The enhanced amount has been given to the National Awardee from the Award year 1999.

This  award  is  conferred upon  the eligible  teachers  by the President of India on the eve of Teacher’s Day i.e. 5th of September every year as  per  the  recommendations of the State Government concerned. The Govt. of India has earmarked two National Awards for UT, Chandigarh i.e one for the Teachers at Primary level and one for the teachers at Secondary level.
