Education Minister’s announcement of the restoration of teachers after elections in Bihar
Bihar Education Minister Krishanandan Verma said that the decision of the Supreme Court in the matter of employed teachers has cleared the path of teacher reinstatement. After the completion of the code of conduct, Bihar will have a large number of teachers restored. He said that vacancies will be invited from all the planning units and vacancies will be collected on the basis of these vacancies.
Education Minister informed that the vacancies will be sent to the planning units as soon as the vacancies will be given in which the TET candidates will be given priority. He said that more than 80 thousand TET pass candidates in the province.
The Minister said that the STET pass will also be given a chance in the upcoming vacancy and also the framework will be prepared regarding the subject restoration. After the decision of the Patna High Court in October 2017, the Bihar government had stayed the process of teacher reinstatement.
In the Supreme Court, about 3.5 lakh employed teachers in Bihar have suffered a major setback on Friday. The court rejected the Bihar government’s plea and adjourned the decision of the Patna High Court.
Significantly, the fight is 10 years old when in 2009 the Bihar Secondary Teacher’s Association had filed a petition in Patna High Court demanding equal pay for employed teachers in Bihar for employed teachers.
After a long hearing lasting eight years, the Patna High Court gave its verdict in favor of the Bihar Secondary Teachers Association in 2017. Against whom the state government had filed a petition in the Supreme Court. But the Supreme Court has overturned the High Court verdict. This decision will directly affect Bihar’s four lakh teachers and their families.
