A section of the deprived 10,323 teachers on Thursday raised voice for alternative jobs as the teachers are likely to lose their job after December 31st.

Keeping forward the demand of alternative jobs the 10,323 teachers, today they have organized a mass agitation followed by a Mahakarn Abhiyaan. 

As many as 10,323 school teachers across Tripura run the risk of losing their jobs after the Supreme Court upheld a state high court order on March 29.

On May 7, 2014, the Tripura high court, in response to 58 petitions, terminated the services of these teachers recruited by the state government in 2010 and 2013 as they were appointed by a policy not compliant with the obligatory qualifications mandated by the Right to Education Act, 2009.

The high court pointed out that the state government did not follow the National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE) guidelines in 2001 while recruiting them. However, with the Right to Education Act coming into play in 2009, the court said it should ave recruited teachers as per the norms of the Act.

On the other hand altogether 10,323 government teachers of Tripura on Tuesday last served the government a deadline of 48 hours starting Wednesday to ensure job security, with less than a month to go (26 days) for termination of service.

If their demand is not met, they will stage blockades on the national highway and block railways tracks, a section of the teachers said.
