Allahabad High Court dismisses as many as 1.75 lakh 'Shiksha Mitras' in UP

The Allahabad High Court's decision on Saturday came as a huge blow to the 'shiksha mitras' who were given the post of assistant teacher, as the court made as many as 1.75 lakh teachers jobless in the state.

The 'shisksha mitras' were appointed under a 1999 scheme of the state government as a result of shortage of teachers at the basic education level, especially in the rural areas. However, teachers who passed the teachers' eligibility test (TET), challenged this decision in the High Court which supported and ruled in favour of the TET-passed teachers.

Afterwards, a three-judge full bench headed by the Chief Justice DY Chandrachud was made which took the decision on Saturday, bringing the long-standing issue to an end.

It was made clear by the court that the assistant teachers did not have the required qualification, thus, cannot carry on with the government service as regular teachers.
