The UAE has launched a drive to hire nearly 3,000 Indian teachers for its government schools, The National reports. The Gulf state is offering significantly higher salaries of Dh16,000 (nearly ₹3 lakh) per month, almost 10 times of what teachers normally make in India. But the recruitment agency is finding it challenging to convince potential jobseekers that the fat, tax-free pay packets are indeed authentic. The lucrative salaries – much higher than the Dh4,000-12,500 that Emirati schools are known to pay – are aimed at attracting competent teachers to enhance education standards in government schools.
