Since the Union ministry of human resource development (MHRD) turned down the state government's proposal to recruit teachers without conducting the Teachers' Eligibility Test (TET), the state government has postponed appointing teachers for the 1.5 lakh vacant posts of undergraduate teachers in state-run schools. The fate of the 863 science graduate teachers who were selected without TET remains undecided. "The ministry was supposed to hold a meeting with the state education ministers on April 23 to discuss the matter but the meeting has been postponed to June 5 next. We have postponed issuing job offers to teachers without conducting TET till the meeting," school education minister Tapan Chakraborty said on Wednesday, 25th April, 2012.
The state education department had demanded relaxation of TET and recruitment of trained teachers with 50 per cent marks in February last following the controversy over the recruitment initiative of the state government without any test. However, the MHRD did not agree with the proposal of the state government and suggested the government to hold TET for the eligible candidates as holding TET has been made mandatory under the Right to Education Act (REA). The Tripura government has been opposing the setting up of the school service commission and TET under REA, saying that the state had poor education infrastructure and it was difficult to get well-educated and trained candidates. Despite the mandatory directives of the Centre to follow the National Council of Teachers' Education (NCTE) to bring qualified and meritorious people as teachers, the state government did not follow it and provided jobs to party cadres, alleged opposition Congress. "The Act has clearly made the provisions of conducting Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) as per the norms and guidelines of NCTE mandatory after initial screening of the eligible candidates for recruitment in schools, but the state government is selecting them on a so-called verbal interview," leader of the opposition R. L. Nath said.
