The Tripura High Court yesterday a notice issued the Tripura State government to answer within seven days on a petition by Computer Faculties for 13000 non-teaching posts interview.
Another a major achievements for Tripura State government, the government has received the first notice from Tripura High Court against its much compulsive 13,000 posts.
The jobless Computer Faculties had appealed in the High Court after their applications were rejected to appeal for 13,000 posts.
A specific work experience format is available with the Education Department which needs to be countersigned by the respective District Education Officer for the applying the post of 13,000 non-teaching staff interviews.
But, the District Education Officers have denied countersigning the experience certificates citing invalid experience for the 13,000 posts who on June 27 School Education Department published the advertisement for the recruitment of non-teaching posts in the vide No.F.1(1-20)SE/-E(N/G)2017.
The non-teaching posts are Academic Counsellor, Student Counsellor, School Library Assistant, Hostel Warden and Programme Assistant. For all these non-teaching post state govt. has made compulsory teaching experience of Five years and Three years respectively as an essential qualification.
The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Schools was launched in December 2004 and revised in 2010 to provide opportunities to secondary stage students to mainly build their capacity on ICT skills and make them learn through the computer-aided learning process. The Scheme provides support to States/UTs to establish computer labs on the sustainable basis.
A total of 700 Computer Faculties were recruited in 350 Govt. schools partly in 2008 and 2010. They were given a remuneration of 2500 rupees instead of 10000 which was actually granted for them by the central Govt.(as mentioned in MHRD website) since their recruitment was done by a third party vendor as the state govt. outsourced this project. Their jobs were eventually terminated on 2013 and 2015 citing non-availability of funds as the prime reason.
Thus all the teachers wanted to apply for those posts, but strangely their applications were not accepted so far for the non-teaching posts. On the other hand, the school authority has given them their experience but the DEO denied to countersign the experience certificates.
Now giving a problem to State government regarding the recruitment process of 13,000 non-teaching posts. High Court has issued a notice in this regard from Tripura Government within 7 days has to reply why the government did not allow Computer Faculties for those interviews.
