Chandigarh, November 21
The Punjab and Haryana High Court (HC) has permitted candidates carrying diploma in elementary education from the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to take written test for the post of ETT teachers scheduled to be held on November 29.
Justice Sudhir Mittal made it clear that the directions were subject to the final outcome of the writ petition.
Justice Mittal was hearing a petition filed by Jalandhar Singh and 26 other candidates through counsel Kapil Kakkar and Shreesh Kakkar. Justice Mittal observed the petitioners’ grievance was that their applications for appointment as ETT teachers was not being considered even though their qualification was recognised by the National Counsel for Teacher Education.
They had obtained diploma in elementary education from the National Institute of Open Schooling, which was recognised under Section 14 of the NCTE Act. As such, the petitioners were entitled to be considered and had the right to appear for the written examination.
