Kolkata: Calcutta High Court gave its final verdict on the Teachers Eligibilty Test(TET) on Wednesday. According to Judge CS Karnan, trained candidates will be given preference in the appointment of primary school teachers.
The state government has been instructed to publish the results. The results will be available in the WB Board Of Primary Education website and will decide the fate of around 23 lakh aspirants after an year of incessant wait.
Earlier, a case to suspend the appointment of unskilled candidates in primary schools was filed in 2015. The publication of the results had been pending for over an year. Calcutta High Court issued a letter to the Centre, asking for another year to deliver its judgement.
The Centre reverted with a date in March, within which the whole recruitment process needed to be completed. The prescribed date had passed, which compelled the batch of trained aspirants to file a fresh lease of case.
