The High Court on Tuesday refused to interfere in the administrative matters of the government and postpone the Teacher’s Eligibility Test (TET), scheduled to be conducted on June 1, to fill the vacancies in government primary schools.

The division bench comprising Justice N K Patil and Justice Ravi Malimutt directed the petitioner to approach the government in this regard.

Some BEd degree holders had filed a writ petition requesting the court to direct the state government to postpone the TET.

They contended that the government had asked the applicants to fill online application forms to appear for the TET. As the servers in most of the authorised centres were down, many aspirants were not able to fill the forms. Therefore, they requested the court to direct the state government to postpone the TET.

Quota Case Put Off

The High Court adjourned the further hearing on the petition filed by St John’s Medical College, Bangalore, requesting  it to stay its interim order directing the deemed universities, the COMED-K colleges and the linguistic minority institutions not to fill the seats that are reserved for government quota in the postgraduate medical courses, to May 8.

In its petition, the college contended that the interim order does not apply to it as it has not signed the agreement with the State government to allocate 33 per cent of the seats in the postgraduate medical courses for government quota.

Therefore, the High Court’s order not to admit students against the government quota till further orders does not apply to it, it argued.
