AGARTALA: The union minister for human resource development (HRD) Prakash Javadekar yesterday assured Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb to examine the proposal of the state government regarding relaxation of qualifying marks and professional degree for the recruitment of teachers.

The chief minister reiterated Javadekar that even after implementation of Right to Education Act (REA) in 2009, the previous Left Front government recruited a large number of teachers without following the provisions of the Act and subsequently high court of Tripura cancelled the job of 10,323 teachers, which was upheld in the Supreme Court.

He argued the state government has appealed to the apex court to extend the service of those terminated teachers for two years but it was not yet decided.

In this situation, the state government has faced a serious problem to run the schools, as the state has not been getting qualified teachers as per REA norms.

Deb sought one-time relaxation in qualifying marks and exemption of professional qualification for recruiting teachers, so that a major part of the problem will be solved and state could at least run the school.

According to CM, Javedkar assured that the decision in this regard shall be taken in the best interest of the state at the earliest.

Deb said, "The minister assured me that he is actively considering the state government's proposal.

" He also raised the issue for setting up of two new Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) in Dharmanagar of North Tripura and Udaipur of South Tripura as well as up-gradation of one Kendriya Vidyalaya in Ambassa and added, "I am assured full support to the demands and these new KVs can initiate operating from the next academic session.
