Perhaps most of the informed visitors including us would have suggested you that- “no”
But please think again. Today’s news might have given everyone a headache. Now it is already 25th and even you cannot apply for CTET-II (an equivalent option for any TET-II).
Oh! Most of our friend might have reacted in the same manner. A quick recall at our previous article New LT grade teacher and Lecturer recruitment 2012-13 suggest that around 3000+ vacancies of LT teachers are to be fulfilled in Uttarakhand
A news in a leading Hindi Daily newspaper declared that the new LT recruitment will require candidates must qualify Teacher Eligibility Test TET-II (for 6 to 8).
This rule is being thought upon by the central government and will most probably be implemented for sure. The officials at the Education department have also confirmed getting a letter in this regard (as said by the newspaper). Now they have to further change the rules and regulations for the direct LT recruitment exam
Earlier there had been talk of change of the exam pattern but this new change might be a more disheartening for most of the aspirants of the government teacher jobs in Uttarakhand. Ultimately initiation of the LT recruitment process may be further delayed. Election of the Lok Sabha is due in 2014. Such events raise the great the hope of common man that politicians will try to woo the unemployed in our so called distorted form of “Democracy”.
As the whim and fancies of the bureaucrats and politicians have always upper hand in our kind of ‘Democracy’.
Anyway what are the options now for benefit of many educated trained candidates?
Believe me even when someone asked us whether he/she should apply for CTET/UTET we were always suggesting them to be on a safer side and apply for it. As far as this new news is concerned, it was going to happen someday (a fear was always in our mind) and it happened.
UTET-2013 date of exam is yet to be declared (please see the other article for this news of UTET-I, II 2013). Hope state government will further give chance to apply for the UTET-II-2013. They can also take one time relaxation from this rule. But now it all depends upon the pressure that is made by the influential groups and the thinking and judgment of the policy makers.
There is no denying of the fact that future of many youths would be at stake.
