TET pass-outs demand quick appointment, meet no success


By TC News Desk

Agartala, January 18:  Hundreds of job aspirants who have passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) in 2022 staged a protest at Shiksha Bhawan here on Thursday, seeking immediate recruitment of teachers in the state. However, they could not meet the Education Director, who was not present in the office.

The personal assistant of the Education Director told the protesters that they would be informed about the next opportunity to meet the director. The protesters said that they have been waiting for a long time for their appointment, but they have not received any clear answer from the department or the minister.

They pointed out that there are 1,615 vacancies in TET One and 1,643 vacancies in TET-II, but the recruitment process has been stalled due to legal issues. They said that the Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha had assured them that the recruitment of teachers is an ongoing process, but he also said that the Supreme Court had canceled the notification of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) on June 28, 2018 regarding the recruitment of undergraduate teachers in TET-I.

They said that they have recently learned that the NCTE has issued a new notification regarding the recruitment of graduate teachers in TET-II, but it has also suggested some amendments in the recruitment rules. They said that the department is still working on revising the recruitment rules, and they have no idea when the recruitment process will resume. They demanded that the government should expedite the recruitment process and fill up the vacant posts as  soon as possible.
