The Board of Secondary Education (BSE) here on Wednesday announced that the Odisha Teachers’ Eligibility Test (OTET) would be held on December 2. The test was earlier scheduled to on July 5, but it was deferred when the
High Court directed the State Government to hold it only after completion of the recruitment process of the Shiksha Sahayaks.
The Teachers Eligibility Test is an essential eligibility criterion for any teacher to be recruited as per the norms of the National Council for Teachers’ Education. However, as per an advertisement in December last year, there was no mention of the TET, and hence over one lakh aspirants applied for the Shiksha Sahayak posts across the State. Later, a merit list was prepared for each district and nearly 20,000 candidates were short-listed.
But when the recruitment process was underway, the Government came out with a proposal to hold TET. This was challenged in the High Court, which in its turn stonewalled the Government proposal and suggested that the eligibility test would be held only after the completion of the ongoing recruitment process.
