GUWAHATI, Aug 11 - Education Minister Sarat Barkataky today told the State Assembly that the Teachers� Eligibility Test ( TET) was conducted in the State without keeping in view the number of posts available, which is now creating problems.

Replying to a question by AIUDF MLA Sapan Kar, the minister said that although more than 20,000 candidates have passed the TET, there are only 5,000 posts on offer.

�We have not been able to create additional posts. The TET should have been conducted in proportion with the posts available,� Barkataky said.

He indicated that his predecessor had not kept that in view and therefore, it is practically not possible to accommodate all.

The minister, who was for rationalised posting of the successful TET candidates, also said that women candidates would be given posting in the nearest possible location.

He further informed the House that the matter has already been taken up with the Chief Minister. Opining that �rationalisation should solve the problem of single teacher in schools to some extent,� he said a committee has also been formed to look into the issue.

Speaker Pranab Gogoi, while acknowledging the gravity of the matter, suggested that an advisory committee, with two members from each political party, be constituted.

Earlier, the minister replying to another question informed that steps are being taken to streamline provincialisation of schools and colleges and that the Act in question also needs amendment.

On the education scenario of NC Hills (Dima Hasao) and Karbi Anglong, the Education Minister told the House that a committee is devising means to look into the concerns of the hill districts under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution.
