What is SLET or U-SET?
It stands for State Level Eligibility Test (SLET) or Uttarakhand State Eligibility Test (USET). It is state level test and can be conceived equivalent to the National Eligibility Test (NET). However the NET is valid in all
India for JRF/Lectureship
but SLET is valid for that state only.
After the formation of the state of Uttarakhand it will be first time SLET-2012 would be organized in the state possibly in the month of July, 2012 for the eligibility of Lectureship in the degree colleges of Uttarakhand.

Government is in view that there is dearth of NET qualified candidates in the state of Uttarakhand. So this may one of the reasons for not filling up the vacant post of professors, assistant professors, associate professors in colleges of Uttarakhand.
Well, we don’t know how they prepare such kinds of reports and views?
There are peoples known to us who have cleared the NET in various subjects and are forced to take up jobs in schools. Further there are eligible candidates who are already teaching in colleges on the contract basis. So there logic seems less valid on ground level. Generally government policies looks like to be made for the vested interests of the few.
Well pardon me if that statement gone bit harsh and one sided.
One reason might be that they want to present a slight easier pattern so that more candidates become available. But government policies are most often increase eligible candidates without looking properly the employment aspect. The Same thing is happening with the B.Ed. course. See how peoples are now fighting it out at the issue of Vishist BTC.
Why not first ensure the jobs for those NET passed and then go for the SLET?
In fact if put in the right manner why go for the SLET by wasting the people’s money and time and just increase the number of candidates looking for job on that basis. It is also well known that at higher education level there are less government jobs as compared to the school education.
Also it seems more frustrating when they talk of maintaining quality in the education system. Can such duplicity and diluted standards ensure the quality?
Their contradictory policies and their thought process go on in AC rooms without much emphasis on the common man’s aspirations, need and benefit.
