Consider academic record for recruiting teachers: courtDecember 8th, 2008 - 10:55 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 8 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Monday asked the government to consider the academic record of the candidates for appointments to the posts of assistant teachers.Hearing a bunch of petitions challenging alleged inaction of the Delhi government, the court said the candidates for the posts should be considered on the basis of the marks obtained in Class 12.
Justice Siddharth Mridul said the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board (DSSSB) and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi had acted illegally in not considering the candidates for the post of assistant teacher (primary).
The DSSSB was also asked to declare the result of the petitioners.
The petitioners’ advocate Ashok Agarwal argued that the petitioners received letters from the DSSSB, rejecting their candidature on the ground that they had secured less then 50 percent marks in the senior secondary examination.
“The petitioners have secured more than 50 percent marks in the best five subjects in class 12 examination and, therefore, they are eligible for consideration for the post of assistant teacher (primary),” he contended.
