Tripura govt to recruit 1468 TET qualified teachers



The Education Department of Tripura has decided to recruit 1468 teachers after the state experienced a shortage of teaching staff following the reopening of schools in December last year, Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath informed.

The Minister said that the offer letter will be sent to the Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) qualified persons from January 20.

Nath also informed that the government will recruit 571 undergraduate and 897 graduate teachers.

Earlier, the government had decided to recruit 3841 teachers. Among them, 1725 as undergraduate and 2116 as graduate teachers.

However, with the announcement of 1468 teachers to be recruited, 2373 teachers have been left out.

Since the problem of shortage of teachers still prevails, Nath informed that the state cabinet will take a call on the suggestion to appoint those who have already cleared the Central TET examination.

He also said that the government will send a letter to the Teachers Recruitment Board Tripura (TRBT) asking them to prepare for the TET exam.

It may be mentioned that 10, 323 teachers were terminated on March 31 last year following a Supreme Court verdict. Ever since the government schools are facing a huge shortage of teachers in Tripura.
