The State School Education Minister KA Sengottaiyan, on Friday, said that those who cleared Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) in 2013 will be appointed only after conducting a competitive exam.

“Efforts were being taken by the government to conduct competitive exam for those who cleared TET in 2013. Those who pass this competitive exam will be appointed based on the vacancies in schools,” he addressed the media in Erode.

The Minister also made an appeal to retired teachers to come forward and take special classes for students during the evening. “However they are not supposed to take classes during working hours in the day,” he added.

The teachers’ fraternity has however, opposed the State government’s move of conducting a competitive exam as they have already cleared the exam. It was considered that forcing too many tests on teachers would demoralise them. Though thousands of teacher aspirants have cleared the TET since 2013, no appointments have been made yet by the government.

Stating that the Avinashi-Athikadavu scheme is a dream project for farmers, the Minister also said that funds have been sanctioned for implementation of the scheme by Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami. “As our Chief Minister was a farmer, he knows the difficulties faced by farmers very well. The government will always work for the welfare of the farmers. Tamil Nadu remains one among the best administered States in India,” he said.
