Government made iot compulsory for schools to appoint teachers who have cleared the central teacher eligibility test (CTET) to improve the quality of teachers. However, with hardly any CTET-qualified candidates available in the state, the CBSE schools are busy hiring teaching staff before the academic session begins in June.

Sources reveal that hardly 5% teachers selected in CBSE schools in the state have cleared the test conducted by the board. Meanwhile, the state government has already made entrance exam compulsory for recruitment of teachers in government and aided schools.

CTET is conducted for the appointment of candidates at two levels — primary-level teachers (Class 1 to V) and junior-level teachers (Class VI to VIII) — in accordance with the provisions of the Right to Education Act.The validity period of CTET qualifying certificate for appointment is seven years from the date of declaration of results for all categories. There is also no restriction on the number of attempts a person can take for clearing the test. A person who has qualified CTET may also appear again for improving his/her score.The CBSE has given five years to existing teachers in CBSE schools to clear the entrance exam but not many from the state are appearing for the test.
