In  the circumstances reported by  the  Commissioner of  School Education,  A.P. Amaravati in the reference read  above,  after careful examination of  the  matter, Government  hereby  accord permission to  the Commissioner of  School Education, A.P.  Amaravati for conversion  of  District  Centre for English,  Guntur into  English Language Teaching  Institute to  impart  training to  in-service teachers both  in English Language Teaching and  Teaching of  Non Language Subjects   in English  Medium under the scheme of  financial assistance to  the English Language Teaching   Institute,  sponsored by  Department  of  School Education,  MHRD,  GoI  through EFLU, Hyderabad. 3.
