Latest THIRD GRADE News : Jaipur : Don't mix general & quota lists: HC

Jaipur: Giving relief to general candidates who appeared in the Rajasthan Teachers’ Eligibility Test (RTET) in 2011, Rajasthan high court has ordered not to include the reserved category candidates in the general category in 3rd grade teacher’s recruitment process.
The court has ordered that the candidates who got less than 60% in RTET should not be included in the recruitment in the general candidates’ list.
The court has also issued show cause notices to state’s principal secretary of panchayati raj department and principal secretary education and others in this matter.

The order was passed by the single bench of justice Manish Bhandari during the preliminary hearing on a petition filed by one Prerna Joshi.
RTET was conducted on June 2, 2011 and the candidates of reserved category who had got less than 60% in the test were included in the list meant for general candidates.
Petitioners informed the court that the candidates of reserved category had already been benefitted in the eligibility norms for appearing in RTET.
It was argued that if they would not have been given relaxation in the eligibility norms the reserved category candidates would not have been included in the test.
The petitioner thus demanded that since they have taken benefit under reserved category they should now not be included in the general category. RTET which was held for the first time in the state has been marred by several issues.
Initially it was slated to be held in May 2011 but it was later organised in June.
Earlier also in September 2011 , the high court had ordered the state government not to issue pass certificate to the candidates belonging to OBC category securing less than 60 per cent marks in the test.
Petitioner had that time informed the court that as per the right to education law, no relaxation can be given to reserved category candidates in pass marks as this amounted to non-compliance of section 335 of the Indian Constitution.
