Besides, the new ‘Face of DoE’ (Directorate of Education) awards will be given to two teachers — Raj Kumar and Suman Arora.

Also, two special awards will be given to Bharti Kalra and Rani Bhardwaj who during the pandemic provided tablet devices to the students and supported them in various ways so that they can continue with their studies, the deputy CM said.
