The Calcutta High Court on Thursday refused to put a stay on the recruitment of 55,000 assistant teachers conducted by School Service Commission. However, the bench set additional conditions for the appointment of teachers while hearing a petition filed by a group of candidates who have received teachers' training.
Justice Debasish Kargupta passed an interim order imposing conditions in addition to those mentioned in the notification of November 25, 2011 issued by the NCTE.
According to the order, appointment of teachers for teaching students up to class VIII will be made from the candidates who must be a trained BEd, a graduate and have passed Teachers Eligibility Test.
The judge also held first preference shall be given to candidates who fulfilled the three additional conditions, and the rest vacancies shall be filled from the panel of the untrained candidates on the conditions that they shall fulfill the three additional conditions by 2014. Justice Kargupta also held that for teaching students of class IX, X and XI, only those candidates who have received teachers' training can be appointed.
