HC lifted ban on result of primary teachers recruitment in Uttarakhand schools


21 Apr 2022


There is news of relief to hundreds of selected candidates of the state who are waiting for appointment to the post of primary teachers in Uttarakhand. The High Court has lifted the ban imposed in 2019. Apart from this, 5% relaxation has also been approved for SC-ST and differently-abled candidates.

The High Court has lifted the ban imposed in 2019 on the release of the results of the selected candidates for the post of assistant teacher in primary schools and has given approval to declare the result. Along with this, under the guidelines of National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE), the government’s proposal to give five percent relaxation to SC, ST and differently-abled candidates has also been approved.

There is good news for the candidates who have been waiting for appointment to the post of primary teacher in the state. After hearing together more than 50 petitions for abolishing the requirement of 50 percent marks in graduation, including B.Ed, for the appointment of teachers at the primary and secondary level, the court clarified in the order that this relaxation will be given to only those candidates who have completed graduation and B.Ed with 45 to 50 percentile.

The court had asked the NCTE in the case of general candidates that they did not put 50 percent compulsion for the appointment of teachers for classes 6 to 8, but why put this compulsion on the appointment of primary teachers. The court directed to respond in this regard within four weeks.

Ban was on declaration of the result

During the hearing, Chief Standing Advocate Chandrashekhar Rawat, appearing for the government, told the court that NCTE has issued a guideline to give five percent relaxation to the candidates belonging to SC-ST and differently-abled categories. On the basis of this, the state government has decided to give exemption to them, on which the court agreed with it. The matter was heard before a division bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Tiwari and Justice RC Khulbe.

According to the case, in the petitions filed in this regard in the High Court, it was said that for the post of assistant teacher in the primary schools of the state, the NCTE and the state government have put a compulsion of 50 percent marks in B.Ed and graduation, which is contrary to the orders of the Supreme Court and the High Court. Yet the state government implemented this rule in the recruitment process of assistant teachers in March 2019.

In the past, the High Court had also ordered the inclusion of beneficiaries who scored less than 50 percent marks in the examination but stayed the declaration of results. This ban was lifted by the court.
