SSC: There is good news for candidates seeking upper primary jobs. School Service Commission has issued mention notices to various parties. An appeal was filed before the Division Bench of Honorable Justice Soumen Sen. The Commission intends to hear case number MAT 2021 638 on or after October 16, preferably before the Puja holidays. That means the case will be heard in the court before the puja holiday.
There are repeated delays in the recruitment of upper primary teachers. Job seekers are disappointed because even after 9 long years the recruitment process is not completed. The case got transferred from the single bench to the division bench due to allegations of corruption in the 2021 interim list released by the School Service Commission for the recruitment of upper primary job candidates.
Justice Subrata Talukdar directed the commission to interview the candidates in 2021. A complaint facility is provided for those who are not called for interview. Ordered to submit the merit list to the court after the second week of November. Later SSCO submits the merit list to the commission. The merit list has been published on the orders of the court.
School Service Commission has released the merit list of 13,339 students. The recruitment process of upper primary is going on since 2014. There are more than 14 thousand vacancies in this recruitment. Officials claim that SSC has already taken several steps regarding the Higher Primary Recruitment process as per the directions of the Calcutta High Court. There has been no recruitment at the upper primary level for almost 10 years.
Earlier the merit list prepared for the recruitment was published but it was canceled due to corruption allegations. The panel was re-released after new interviews were conducted. Successful candidates are becoming impatient day by day. They are demanding immediate appointment.
