Since then, these awards are given every year on Teachers’ Day i.e. 5 September. Each award consists of a merit certificate, a shawl and a cash prize of Rs.50,000/-.
"In order to honour both outstanding teachers and principals, the Board has revised the criteria, guidelines and procedure of selection for these awards to make them more objective and transparent", the CBSE said.
"Selection of final awardees by the Committee and announcement of awards will be displayed on the CBSE portal. The names of the top 6 scorers will be forwarded to Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India for National Teachers Award. The shortlisted candidates will be either eligible for National Awards, or for CBSE Awards as per rules", it said.
