Agartala, November 01: Unemployed individuals who have successfully passed the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) are urging the government to expedite the recruitment process, challenging the traditional approach of staggered appointments. Currently, the government’s policy dictates that appointments are made as per the department’s specific need for teachers, rather than recruiting all qualified candidates at once.
In a proactive move, a group of TET qualified aspirants, who completed the examination in 2022, approached the Education Department’s Director on Wednesday, demanding the immediate appointment of 361 successful candidates. Their quest for employment led them to congregate outside the Shiksha Bhavan here before forming a delegation to meet with the Director of the Education Department.
During their meeting with the Director, they pressed for the swift recruitment of the 361 TET qualified aspirants from the year 2022. Following the meeting, one of the individuals who passed the TET in 2022 spoke to reporters revealing that the Director of the Education Department had expressed the department’s readiness to hire the qualified candidates. However, they expressed concerns that the appointment decision ultimately rests with the Minister of the Department, i.e., the Chief Minister, who has not made any definitive statement regarding the appointments, leaving the department unable to proceed with recruitment.
The unemployed TET passers are determined to break away from the traditional recruitment process and secure prompt employment opportunities, emphasizing their role in educating the future generation. The situation highlights the ongoing challenges faced by educated job-seekers in their pursuit of gainful employment.
