New Delhi: President Ram Nath Kovind on Saturday, felicitated 47 educators across the country with National Teachers’ Awards.
This year, on the occasion of Teachers’ Day, the ceremony was held through video-conferencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kovind congratulated the winners and also shared some pictures of the event on his Twitter handle.
He tweeted in Hindi, “Main puraskaar vijetaon ko badhaee deta hoon aur bachchon ko shikshit banaane mein unakee kadee mehanat, samarpan aur pratibaddhata kee saraahana karata hoon. main apane desh mein shikshak samudaay ke sabhee sadasyon ko apanee haardik shubhakaamanaen deta hoon (I congratulate the awardees and appreciate their hard work, dedication and commitment in educating children. I extend my heartiest congratulations to all the members of the teacher community in our country).”

In his speech, Kovind also praised teachers for their dedication towards their students and providing online education during the pandemic. He also discussed the new National Education Policy introduced by the government.
He said, “You will have to know about the latest developments in technology to succeed in the education sector today,” as quoted by Zee News.
The 74-year-old further said, “Good buildings, expensive equipment or facilities do not make a good school, but teachers have a crucial role in building a good school. They are the ones who develop foundation of knowledge and character building in our students.
The teachers were asked to self-nominate themselves on the www.mhrd.gov.in portal. The final selection was made by an independent jury at the national level which was led by retired secretary of the erstwhile Human Resources and Development Ministry’s Department of School Education and Literacy for the National Awards for Teachers 2020.
The independent jury again reviewed the list of the 153 selected teachers which were shortlisted by 36 states and Union Territories, selection committees and seven organisation selection committees through video-conferencing.
