The process of appointment of about 26 thousand teachers will start in Jharkhand from next month. As per the decision of the state government, the roster has been cleared with 10% reservation in teacher appointments. Under this, reservation has been given to the economically weaker sections (EWS).
In the instructions received from the department, the districts have sent the appointment of 25,996 posts to the education department after clearing the reservation roster. Now the department will send requisition to Jharkhand Staff Selection Commission for appointment.
In fact, 50 thousand posts of assistant teachers (primary teachers) are vacant in primary and secondary schools of the state. These included 20,825 posts for classes one to five and 29,175 for classes six to eight. The department had asked the districts to clear the reservation roster for a total of 50,000 posts.
Along with this, while clearing the reservation roster for 25,996 posts, instructions were also given to provide requisition for appointment. This is the second time in the last seven months, when the reservation roster has been cleared for appointment. Earlier in September 2022 also the districts were instructed.
The districts cleared the reservation roster and sent the requisition for appointment to the department, but there was no provision for EWS reservation in it. Due to this the recruitment process could not be started.
