Step 2: Number of posts required for non language curricular posts for minor medium from relevant enrolment slab of Table III-B,

Class Enrolment Sections
From Table Ill-A, the Teacher Posts required for the School as per the above enrolment.
Further, all 9 teacher posts are filled. Their qualification and subjects studied are given below, designation wise
How to prepare Time Table/ Allot workload:
