Mr. Nirmal Singh resident of district Firozpur and 20 others ETT passed candidates have challenged the second competitive test for recruitment to the 2364 posts of ETT cadre to be filled in the Punjab Education Department and has sought quashing of clause 3 of the advertisement March 06 issued by the Punjab Education Recruitment Board

Mr. Justice Jatindra Chauhan, after hearing the counsel for the petitioners at length while admitting the writ petition, directed that the appointments if made any would be subject to the outcome of the writ petiiton and ordered the fixing of the case after the High Court resumes the normal functioning.

It was submitted by Kapil Kakkar and Hema Kakkar, counsel for the petitioners that after passing 2 year ETT course, the petitioners have passed the Punjab State Teacher Eligibility Test also as required under the statutory rules governing the appointment of ETT teachers in the State of Punjab and are fully eligible for 2364 posts of ETT cadre as advertised by the Punjab Education Department on March 06, 2020.

It was contended by Kakkar that however vide clause 3 of the advertisement, the recruitment board has prescribed the holding of another written test and has laid down that the merit will be determined only on the basis of the said written test and the marks of TET will not be counted in the merit, which is totally illegal and arbitrary. It was contended by the counsel that prescribing of another written test against the statutory rules laying down the qualification and not making the selection on the basis of the marks obtained in basic qualification plus TET, as was being done in all the previous recruitments was totally unjust and unfair and this new method of selection in derogation of the previous practice depicts the non application of the mind on the part of the recruiting agency which is going to create unnecessary hurdles for the prospective candidates.
