Teachers who are checking try to treat copies honestly.But if their wages are halved and the working load is boosted, they will certainly not be able to do justice, he said.The evaluators who work from 10 am to 5 pm daily also complained about the lack of facilities at the assessment center.The water is stored in a bucket, not even in a cup.

The evaluation centers lack the expertise and support required by the evaluators to carry out a thorough copy examination.Teachers have no access to a drinking water and electricity source that should be provided at the time of evaluation.Dr Anil Kumar Mahto, the chairman of the JAC, did not address the pay cut and the increase in copies.Due to the election, the appraisal process must be completed as quickly as possible, according to him.
