CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has ordered notice to the Teachers Recruitment Board (TRB), Chennai, and the Secretary of Department of School Education on a  petition that sought appointment of special teachers for posts of drawing teachers in schools as per the School Education Subordinate Special Rules.The petitioner Thirupathi of Ramanathapuram said that a notification dated July 20, 2017 laid down that the qualification required for a drawing teacher was a diploma (five years) course awarded by the Director of Technical Education and a Bachelor degree awarded by Madras University or Bharathiyar University.

Earlier, the qualification was SSLC and technical qualification.

Petitioner said the qualification was higher than that  mentioned in the special rules. He said the rules were clear and that this addition to the qualification will only result in people like him being sidelined when it came to appointment to the post.He said despite possessing the required qualification and experience as per the Special Rules, he may lose a chance for selection owing to the authorities having not gone by the rule book when it came to appointment of drawing teachers. “I possess sufficient experience. However, I may not be selected for the post by virtue of insertion of additional qualification.”

He prayed the court for a directive to the authorities to appoint drawing teachers as per the Special Rules and give preference to him in the appointment process.Thirupathi was appointed as a part-time drawing teacher on a consolidated pay basis for one year. Later, he became unemployed. Thereafter, he managed to secure a job in the District Elementary Educational Office in Ramanathapuram where he was again appointed as a part-time drawing teacher for a year.
