The teaching aspirations who wish to join Delhi Govt Schools in the capacity of TGT and PRT can now without having CTET this time. Everybody knows that Central Teachers’ Eligibility Test is must for getting these posts under CBSE schools in the country. However, Central Administrative Tribunal ( CAT) has recently directed the Delhi Govt and DSSSB that they will have to give the opportunity to all the candidates who wish to apply for these Eight Thousand Nine Hundred and Fourteen Posts.
The Delhi govt has released a job notification for teachers for Delhi Schools for more than 8000+ posts. But the govt made some modification in the selection criteria. Now CTET is not compulsory for applying these posts. The decision was taken by a bench of CAT comprised President Pramod Kohli and one of the members KN Srivastava.
In the favor of this decision, sixteen petitioners had filed a petition. They had also provided a good reason for not making CTET must for TGT and PRT Posts. They had pleaded that Delhi Subordinate Selection Board ( DSSSB) had not conducted the Teachers’ Eligibility Test ( DSSSB) from Sept 2017. That’s why many candidates were not eligible without this qualifying test. It was the genuine problem and the board conveniently took the decision.
The Eligibility test must have taken place in Sept or Oct 2017. But govt for some reasons could not have conducted it. So it was not the candidates’ fault not having CTET certificate. It should be noted that for teachers’ job this test must in India. The first such test had begun in Haryana in 2008 with the name STET. Later it got new name called HTET. After some time, all the states and central education board ( CTET ) adopted this test. Unlike Haryana, there is no need of TET for PGT posts anywhere.
The aspirants are very happy with this decision. They have appreciated CAT for this golden opportunity. If the readers have any opinion regarding this new rule of DSSSB, they can use the comment box below. Thanks.
