Jamshedpur: The state education minister Gitashri Oraon today said that the results of 17,000 candidates of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) held in the state will soon be published.
She said the results had been withheld from being published due to some unavoidable circumstances. She said the successful candidates will be appointed on the basis of priority that would be given to the trained candidates.
She was speaking to mediapersons at the Circuit House during her visit to the city. She was here to participate in a number of programmes.
The minister said the recruitment process will start again once the process gets completed for the last TET. She said around 2 lakh candidates had taken the exam.
Around 65,000 candidates have been declared to have passed the exam. Oraon said many candidates had reportedly succeeded in the exam on the basis of recognition to Bhojpuri language in TET as a regional language.
She said the Bhojpuri language had no recognition in the exam. Therefore such candidates cannot be declared to be successful in the exam, she said.
Oraon further said that the honorarium given to parateachers in the state will be hiked soon. She said the state government was in the process of hiking the honorarium of parateachers.
She said the regularization demand of the parateachers will be fulfilled at a later stage.
The HRD minister said the local people of the state will be given preference in higher education field. She said many institutions will have to fulfill the criterion set by the government for giving preference to the domiciles of the state.
Oraon further said that a meeting will be held to ensure strict implementation of the Right to Education Act in the state. She said the meeting will be held with the representatives of schools of the city and other parts of the state.
