HC to give Teacher’s Eligibility Test verdict on Wednesday
The examinees are waiting to get their queries about whether the examinees who had their certificates of primary teachers training, will only see their name in the panel or examinees, irrespective of having certificates of training will have a place in the panel.
There are several cases against the TET pending in court. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier cleared that the result would soon come out if the legal petitioners withdraw their cases.
The Calcutta High Court asked the state government about why it had asked the Centre to relax the eligibility criteria for teaching candidates when trained applicants outnumber the recruitment capacity of state-aided primary schools. Following the state’s prayer, the Centre relaxed the rule for only one year.
The court has pointed to a petition by Chinmoy Dalui, a candidate in TET along with others, stating that trained candidates who took the TET (Teacher Eligibility Test) for recruitment in state primary schools were 69 per cent – more than the recruitment capacity.
The state government, however, has decided to appoint retired teachers as guest teachers as a “stop-gap measure” to fill up a large number of vacant posts at primary and secondary schools in the state.
State education minister Partha Chatterjee earlier said, the retired teachers would be accommodated in such schools where number of the teachers is less than the actual requirement.
