Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) chairman Atul Prasad on Sunday announced the conduct of Teacher Recruitment Test (TRE) across the state from August 24 to August 26. Under the recent order of the Supreme Court, the candidates have also been requested not to be under any illusion. Let us tell you, due to the order of the Supreme Court, now BEd (Bachelor of Education) degree holders will be considered ineligible for the post of primary teachers.
Atul Prasad ji told “As of now, there is no reason to stop the examination for primary teachers. The government should take a policy decision on this matter and we have not yet received any communication in this matter, which means the examination is still on. Education is in the Concurrent List and like the Centre, states can make their own rules. We do not know what rules the state government will make and at what level. There is no point in stopping the examination in view of the possibility, as it would be unfair to the candidates who have applied on the basis of D.El.Ed (Diploma in Elementary Education).”
The Apex Court has upheld the Rajasthan High Court’s verdict earlier this week, which had made B. Did not do
This is against the 2018 National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) notification, which made B.Ed degree holders eligible for the post. The Board of Secondary Education of Rajasthan also denied eligibility to B.Ed degree holders in the State Teacher Eligibility Test, which was challenged in the Rajasthan High Court and supported by the Rajasthan government.
This decision of the Supreme Court came when Bihar was preparing to recruit more than 1.75 lakh teachers, including more than 85 thousand primary teachers. Many candidates of primary school recruitment were confused because some candidates were having B.Ed degree while some had both B.Ed and D.El.Ed degree.
The BPSC chairman said that whatever decision the government takes can be implemented even after the exam, as the screening will be done at the time of result or before the interview. “We are not doing document verification at this stage, but it can be done anytime after the exam. Many candidates may have both B.Ed and D.El.Ed degree, which will be filtered after the examination and while preparing the merit list. It makes no sense to deny opportunity to these candidates as they would have shown only one document while applying”.
