Supreme Court Bench headed by Hon’ble Justice UU Lalit has dismissed the appeal of Uttar Pradesh Shiksha Mitra Association. Meaning thereby the cutoff will remain 60 to 65 for General and Reserved category.
However, one last chance will be given to the Shiksha Mitras to compete.
In the ongoing recruitment of 69000 teachers (69,000 Assistant Teachers) in Uttar Pradesh, the government has completed the recruitment process for 31,277 posts. The Uttar Pradesh government has done this recruitment (69000 Assistant Teachers) as per the order of the Supreme Court.
After the completion of this recruitment process, now the candidates were very keen about the remaining posts and were waiting for the order of the Supreme Court for the recruitment of vacant posts in Uttar Pradesh (69000 Assistant Teachers).
In the past days, in the recruitment of 31,000 teachers the Supreme Court had also denied any kind of prohibition. At the same time, the hearing on other issues including the cutoff was completed in the Supreme Court on July 24 itself.
SC Dismisses Appeal of UP Shiksha Mitra Association
The main contention of Shiksha Mitra’s were that earlier the cut off was 40-45 but later on in the midst of selection process, it was increased to 60-65.
Therefore rules of the game (Selection) can not be changed once the process has commenced.
The Supreme Court had already ordered the Uttar Pradesh Government to recruit 37 thousand posts for Shiksha Mitras by keeping reserves. The UP Government (Uttar Pradesh Government) has completed the recruitment process (69000 Assistant Teachers) and teachers have also been posted in schools.
After this recruitment process, only about 28 thousand posts have been filled. While thousands of posts are vacant in this recruitment (69000 Assistant Teachers), there is already a lot of curiosity among the candidates about the old posts. The order coming from the Supreme Court had decided the direction of this teacher recruitment (69000 Assistant Teachers) and also the future of the candidates.
On July 24, 2020, the order was reserved by the Supreme Court while hearing several cases of this teacher recruitment (69000 Assistant Teachers). Thousands of candidates are still awaiting the final order after the order was secured by the Supreme Court. Hearing on several issues of this recruitment (69000 Assistant Teachers Recruitment), the Supreme Court had tagged all the cases with a single petition. The Supreme Court has held a hearing on July 24 in SLP (c) -6841/2020 Ram Sharan Maurya Vs. Vs. State Government of Uttar Pradesh.
The Supreme Court has affirmed the Judgment of Allahabad High Court.
A division bench of Allahabad High Court found that the decision of Government to enhance the cut off mark is legally justified and to ensure that merit is not compromised.
However the Supreme Court has given one opportunity to Shiksha Mitras for participating in next selection.
