Ninety percent of the nine hundred and nine Tamil medium volunteers made permanent Thursday assumed duties in their respective Tamil medium schools in the northeast, provincial education ministry officials said.

The central government public service commission approved a list of 909 Tamil medium volunteer teachers for permanency out of a list of 1200 submitted to it by the northeast provincial education ministry after holding interviews and on the spot inspection to select qualified volunteer teachers for permanency.
