Deprived TET-qualified teachers fight

By Correspondent

BONGAIGAON, May 11 � Deprived eligibility test qualified teachers of BTAD gathered at the District Library auditorium hall here to discuss the progress of their cases filed against the Education department of BTC by the All BTAD TET Teachers� Association on behalf of them on Sunday.

Around 2,800 eligibility test qualified teachers had been serving in various schools in BTAD since 2012-2013 under the Sarba Siksha Abhiyan as contractual teachers for a five-year term.

Meanwhile, the BTC authority had called applications against 2125 posts of TET teachers on February 3, 2014 through a circular.

Accordingly, of the 2125 posts, the BTC authority had appointed 1441 teachers as per its selection lists of 2005 and 2006 and the rest kept for non-TET teachers on January 23, 2015.

The association had challenged the appointment and filed two cases (WPC 358 and 2218) on January 23 and April 10 this year at the Gauhati High Court questioning its ground and validity.

Going through the first petition, the court in its order on February 13 this year, clearly said that the 2125 posts of teachers meant for TET qualified candidates �cannot be used� for non-TET candidates.

Another order passed by the court based on the second petition also nullified the appointment of non-TET teachers by the BTC authority.

The association�s secretary Janak Mushahary said they are not against the appointment of non-TET teachers, they are only seeking their rights.

�The posts classified for us should be given to us and the rest, if any, should be given to the non-TET teachers. We have no objection�, said Sunny Benjamin Narzary, president of the association.

The association also alleged that violating the RTE Act and other guidelines, the BTC authority had appointed the teachers against the posts of TET qualified teachers.
