The Assam government on Wednesday informed that the Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) will not be held in the state for the next two years.

Assam Education Minister Ranoj Pegu said that the decision was taken as there are many candidates who have passed the TET examination against the available vacancies.

Pegu said, “CTET qualified candidates will now be allowed to apply for jobs from this year onwards. Candidates who have already qualified CTET will be able to submit their application against vacant posts.”

All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) Secretary Sankar Jyoti Baruah said that a large number of applicants are expecting to get a job by clearing TET examinations, when asked by reporters to comment on the decision of the state government.

He said that many job seekers have prepared for the exam and it would be disastrous for them, appealing to the government to re-assess their deicision.

It may be noted that Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said in March, last year that 16,000 TET qualified candidates will be appointed by the month of June, that year. The CM had made the announcement during the budget session of the Assam Assembly.

However, the CM had said that passing TET exam doesn’t mean that they have been appointed as teachers.

Meanwhile, CM Sarma further stressed on increasing the number of schools and colleges in the minority areas. “The schools and colleges in the minority dominated areas should be increased for the development of the people,” he said.

He also stressed on setting up of model schools in every constituency and also asked the MLAs to submit the list.
