RTET : No Rajasthan Teachers Eligibility Test certificate to those securing less than 55%

RTET : No  Rajasthan Teachers Eligibility Test certificate to those securing less than 55%

JAIPUR: The Rajasthan high court on Tuesday directed the board of secondary education not to issue eligibility certificates to all those reserved category candidates appearing for Rajasthan Teachers Eligibility Test (RTET) who have been given additional relaxation by the state government besides the prescribed relaxation in minimum passing marks fixed by NCTE.

Justice M N Bhandari issued the order on a petition filed by D K Sharma and others. It was contended that the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) being the apex body has issued a notification on August 23, 2010 wherein the minimum pass marks fixed were 60% but later in July 2011 the said cutoff marks were reduced by granting relaxation of 5% marks to the reserve category candidates. It was also argued by the petitioners that the sate government, bypassing the legal position, granted relaxation from 10% to 20% to various classes of reserved candidates, which was previously stayed by the high court in 2011.

It was apprehended by the petitioners that again the board of secondary education will grant similar benefits this year as has been given in 2011. Taking a note of the contentions, the judge issued a show cause notice to principal secretary, panchayati raj, principal secretary, education and board of secondary education, Ajmer and directed that no candidate belonging to reserved category and securing less than 55% marks be given qualifying certificate in RTET examination, 2012.

A single bench of Justice Manish Bhandari passed the order on an application by one Deependra Kumar Sharma and others.
The petitioner said the NCTE issued a notification in which the minimum eligibility for teacher recruitment was kept at 60% and the candidate will have to pass RTET. 
On July 29, another notification was issued and a relaxation of 5% was awarded for reserved category. 
Meanwhile, state government gave a relaxation of 10% to ST, SC, OBS, SBCV and women, while women from reserved category, widows and divorcees were given a relaxation of 15% along with a 20% relaxation to differently abled.
Challenging its decision, the petitioner said the state government went against NCTE’s notification and gave over 5% relaxation to reserved category due to which if certificates are issued to those with less than 55% marks, the interests of the applicants will be affected.

The high court also ordered all zila parishads of state not to appoint those candidates of the 3rd category teachers who have passed RTET-2011 while doing BSTC first-year course. It ordered Secondary Education Board not to issue certificates of RTET to candidates without testing eligibility. 
Petitioner Naresh Nama said in third category teacher recruitment by Bara Zila Parishad, candidates who had passed RTET exam while in first year BSTC course, whereas those who are in the final year of BSTC course are eligible to appear for RTET.
