Punjab E News: The Punjab Education Department has banned teachers and non-teaching staff from taking child care leave and foreign leave from January to March. They will get leave only in case of an emergency.
The director has written a letter to all the district education officers and school heads, saying that the time of examinations of children has come to a close and during this time the teachers need to pay special attention to the education of the children.
