Agartala: The supreme court of India has finally granted a six-month extension to the 10, 323 terminated teachers of Tripura considering by the state government for an extension of one year, the report said.
As per reports, On Thursday, the division bench comprising Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and Udai Umesh Lalit granted 6 months more to the 10,323-school teacher. The state government had made a plea for one year’s extension in view of the critical shortage of teachers and the possibility of the school education system collapsing in the state in the new academic session.
The state government’s second plea on the recruitment of 12, 000 non-teaching posts which had been stayed by the Apex court by an order on October 24, was also heard by the judges but no order was passed. This case is actually scheduled to be heard on January 16.
Early this year, Supreme Court upheld a 2014 Tripura High Court order which terminated the services of 10,323 government teachers employed by the state government in 2010 and 2013 as they were appointed by a policy not compliant to the obligatory qualifications mandated by the Right to Education Act (RTE), 2009.
