The Supreme Court on Thursday (Nov 10) permitted Tripura government to take the services of terminated teachers till the academic session 2020 on a contempt plea against the Tripura government for violating SC order mandating recruitment of 12,000 non-teaching staff.
During today’s hearing, the Senior Counsel PS Patwalia appearing for Tripura government told the bench comprising CJI Ranjan Gogoi and Justices U U Lalit, K M Joseph that nterest free loan of Rs 2 lakhs for 4 years is being offered in order to encourage people to pursue BEd and diploma in education.
Upon the submissions, the CJI asked Patwalia: “In tribal areas, knowledge of tribal language is a must. The job requires degree and diploma, if we bring in people from outside then language will be a major issue,” and sought Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta’s solution.
Patwalia further told the bench that 2019 onwards Tripura is shifting to CBSE module.
The bench told Patwalia to keep the decision on hold till Centre files reply on that.
The bench said that it will hear the matter after four months to oversee the progress.
