KOLKATA: The West Bengal government is planning to bring teachers of different categories - para-teachers, PTTI teachers and the like - in schools and colleges under one umbrella and absorb them in regular employment in a phased manner, chief minister Mamata Banerjee said. She fixed a three-year timeframe for this task.

Mamata said the interest of teachers, who were not in regular employment, had never been taken into account by the previous government though they had rendered an invaluable service.
