‘Recruitment Of Upper Primary Teachers’ HC


Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Monday gave the nod for recruitment of upper primary teachers in the government schools.

The court’s direction has made it clear that out of a vacancy of 14,000 teachers, 12,600 teachers can now be recruited in classes V to VIII in the state schools.

The next hearing has been scheduled in July. “Justice Chakraborty has said that 90 percent of the recruitment should not remain stalled for a deadlock of 10 percent para teachers,” said advocate Gourav Das, who appeared for the petitioners.
