JTET : Court accepts petition challenging teacher eligibility test pattern

 RANCHI: The Jharkhand High Court on Thursday accepted the petition filed by one RadheshyamSahu challenging the pattern teacher eligibility test (TET) based on which the examination is scheduled to be organized on April 26.

However, the court did not accept the petitioner's request to stop the state government from organizing the test on the scheduled date.

A division bench of Chief Justice Prakash Tatia and Justice Jaya Roy accepted the petition of Sahu in which he had challenged the patter of TET and government's decision to make regional language compulsory.

According to the petitioner's advocate Manoj Tandon, the court, however, said that if the points raised in the petition are found to be correct at end of trial then the government will have to return examination fee of the candidate who appears in the test.

"My client has challenged the decision of the state government to include regional language as it is against the guideline set by NCERT followed by all the state in the country," said Tandon.

The petitioner has also raised question on teaching in regional languages in schools and colleges in the state. In most of the schools and colleges there is no facility for teaching regional languages and if it is included in the TET most aspirants will fail to qualify the examination.

The court has asked the state government to file its reply on the point raised by the petitioner within three-weeks. The court has fixed June 11 for next date of hearing..
