    Not just signing the vouchers, they have to maintain records, get signatures, collect receipts and enter details and so on. This is like election duty. They have enough work load relating to studies.

    In a class only 30 to 35 children. If the class teacher can not sign vouchers for 35 children and says impractical then they not fit to be teachers. Are we handing our children to these types of people.
