Ahmedabad: The state govt told the assembly on Wednesday that about one-third of the teachers who made mistakes while checking board exam papers in the last two years have not paid their fines yet.

The average fine for a Class 10 teacher was Rs 1,433 and for a Class 12 teacher, it was Rs 1,813. The govt gave its answer to a question asked by Vansda MLA Anant Patel. In total, 9,218 teachers were fined Rs 1.54 crore for the mistakes. Of these, only 6,134 teachers have paid Rs 1.23 crore in fines. The remaining 3,084 teachers have not paid yet. The answer also said that more Class 12 teachers made mistakes than Class 10 teachers.

Of the 9,218, nearly 63% of the teachers (5,868) are from Class 12 while 3,350 are from Class 10. Of the 3,350 Class 10 teachers fined, around 28% have not paid their fines against 38% of the Class 12 teachers fined. The state education department and the district education officer have told them to pay the remaining amount, the assembly was informed. For the teachers who made mistakes while checking board exam papers in March 2023 and have not paid the fine amount, the department has sent them notices to recover the money. To avoid any problem, fines were given only after the teachers were shown the mistakes they made, according to education department sources.

To make sure that no mistake is missed, the department has a verifier in each team that checks the papers at the centres. The answer by the state govt says that there has been a decrease in the number of teachers making mistakes while checking papers. In 2022, there were 4,735 such teachers while in 2023, the number went down to 4,483. In 2019, the state govt increased the fines for teachers who made mistakes in adding marks – the fine went up from Rs 50 to Rs 100 for Class 10 teachers and from Rs 100 to Rs 200 for Class 12 teachers.
