UP CM welcomes SC order on assistant basic teachers recruitment – education
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday welcomed the Supreme Court order allowing him to fill the vacancies of 69,000 basic assistant teachers in the state based on results declared by her in May.
In a statement issued here, Adityanath said: “The ruling of the Supreme Court has put its stamp on the decision of the UP Government. For those Shiksha Mitras who have not had a chance, the state government will give them another chance. ”The Department of Basic Education has been instructed to obtain permission from the Election Commission to distribute letters of appointment to selected candidates.
According to an official from the Basic Education department, the Shiksha Mitras are para-teachers, who were appointed by their respective village panchayats before 2010 in the primary schools. There are currently over 1.50 lakhs of Shiksha Mitras in the state. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court allowed the government of Uttar Pradesh to fill the vacancies of 69,000 basic assistant teachers in the state, according to the results declared by it in May.
A court headed by Judge UU Lalit dismissed a number of petitions, including the one filed by the Uttar Pradesh Prathmik Shiksha Mitra Association, challenging the Allahabad High Court’s decision to maintain the cut-marks for the selection of basic assistant teachers in the state. The bank, in its opinion, said that it has registered the presentation of the state government that a ‘Shiksha Mitra’ who has failed to pass the test, would have another chance to compete in the next selection. The association had defied the Uttar Pradesh government order of January 7, 2019, whereby the scores for the 2019 Assistant Teacher Recruitment Exam were set at 65 and 60 for the general and reserved categories, respectively.
