The Maharashtra state government will conduct the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) on July 8, the local education department announced on Saturday. The test is mandatory for all seeking job as teachers from Std I-VIII as well as those who joined after Feb 2013. Online applications for TET start from April 24.
Sanjay Nagre, an official at the Deputy Director of Education (DDE) office, said, “Those who are currently employed (from 2013) have to appear and clear the exam by 2019. No school shall employ any new teacher unless he or she has cleared the TET.”
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) too has made it mandatory to clear the eligibility test for teachers, though it has its own pan-India version. The Central Teachers Eligibility Test (CTET) is conducted twice a year and the certificate is valid for seven years. However, CBSE has clarified that teachers can be hired even if they possesses the respective state’s equivalent exam. This has cleared the way for CBSE schools in Maharashtra to hire teachers based on TET certificates as well, rather than CTET only.
The mandatory TET was introduced to comply with RTE Act provisions and is more likely to be used by private school job applicants as hiring in government and government-aided schools has almost stopped. In Zilla Parishad schools, there has been hiring done since 2012 as they battle falling enrolment and excess teachers, the aided schools have been asked to fill vacancies from the excess teacher pool.
