Uttar Pradesh Basic Shiksha Parishad Teachers Recruitment 2012-2013: Complying with the orders of the high court, the state basic education department on Friday published an advertisement inviting online applications for the recruitment of teachers in primary schools. The recruitment process began after the state government on Tuesday approved the amendment in the UP Basic Education (Teachers) Service Rules, 1981 after which a provision for temporary appointment can be done in primary schools. Coincidentally, the high court has also set December 7 as the deadline for publishing the advertisement.
A candidate holding a Bachelor of Education (BEd) degree and have qualified Central Teacher Eligibility Test (CTET), conducted by CBSE, or UP TET (held in November 2011) can apply for the job. The last date for registering online is December 31. According to the state government officials, the appointments of 72,825 teachers in primary schools will be completed by March 31.
At present, there are 1.6 lakh posts lying vacant in primary schools, while in junior high schools, the number of vacant posts extends up to 257,939. In Lucknow region alone, there are 17,102 posts lying vacant. But only 12 appointments are to be made this time. Gonda division which has four districts – Gonda, Balrampur, Bahraich and Shravasti will see 4,000; 1,800; 4,000 and 1,200 appointments respectively. As many as 3,300 teachers will be appointed in the Moradabad division, which consists of five districts while 1,474 teachers will be appointed in Kanpur division having six districts.
The state government on November 2011 had published an advertisement for recruitments of teachers in primary schools, but the process was brought to ground zero after gross anomalies in TET came to light. In fact, name of the then secondary education director Sanjay Mohan surfaced in duping the candidates by promising them job. The matter was put to hold. With the change of guard in UP, it was first decided to cancel the TET 2011 and conduct a fresh test. After protests from the TET qualified candidates, the state government declared TET as a qualifying exam for recruitments in primary schools.
In order to speed up the recruitments, education officials came up with a temporary solution, which required amendment in UP Basic Education (www.upbasiceduboard.gov.in) Service Rules, 1981. As per the changes, a candidate holding a B.Ed degree and has qualified CTET/UPTET can be appointed as a trainee teacher in primary schools. After the appointment, the candidate will be provided six months training following which they will be given substantive appointment. Education officials believed that this way permanent appointment will be made.
With the introduction of coming in of Right to Education Act (RTE), 2009 which though came into effect in April 2010, it was decided that no untrained teacher will be appointed in primary and junior high schools across the country and also an authorized institution will have to set the qualification for the appointments. The Centre then chose National Council for Teachers’ Education (NCTE) as a body to define minimum eligibility level, which paved way for TET.
