New Delhi: The country's highest court has pronounced its verdict in the teacher recruitment case. In the case of recruitment of 69 thousand teachers, the top court has stopped filling 37339 posts. There will be no appointment on these posts and these seats will remain vacant till further orders. On behalf of Shiksha Mitras, 37339 posts were demanded to be kept vacant. Now the next hearing of this case will be held on 14 July. Petitioner advocate RK Singh pleaded in this case.
It is noteworthy that Shiksha Mitras of Uttar Pradesh had approached the Supreme Court. Shiksha Mitras had demanded to keep 37339 posts vacant in the case of recruitment of 69000 assistant teachers. In the last hearing, the apex court had asked the UP government to get data on how many Shikshamitras have passed at the 40/45 cutoff. But Shikshamitra says that in the written test, total 45357 Shikshamitras had entered the form, out of which 8018 Shikshamitra passed with 60-65 percentile.
However, there is no data on how many Shikshamitra passed at the cutoff of 40-45, therefore, 37379 posts out of 69000 posts should be recruited as assistant teachers or hold the entire recruitment process. Shikshamitras had filed an application in the Supreme Court for a hearing before 6 June.
