The recruitment and appointment of Post Graduate teachers for Botany subject are being delayed continuously for some time now.
About 2,300 graduate teacher candidates who wrote the TET entrance examination have all been selected and posted to various posts of their specialization by the month of December, 2012. These teachers have also got their 2 months’ salary in this duration. But the teacher candidates who appeared for the recruitment under Botany subject are yet to be announced of the final result list and the counseling is yet to be done.
With regards to the issue of wrong questions scenario, the analysis and release of results for the Botany subject has been held by the order of Madras High Court. It is being said that about 195 candidates will be selected through this finalization.
As far as Tamil medium based subject teachers recruitment system is concerned, due to the 20% consideration reform introduction, the list is still not released. It is still a work in progress.
When asked the TET Board about this issue, they replied that the Botany teacher candidate’s selection list has been finalized and will be released soon. As for the Tamil medium based teacher candidates recruitment for the 200 cant seats available, the TRB has been constantly questioning various Universities and Colleges as to which groups and subjects are being taught in Tamil medium so as to help the board realize the authenticity of Tamil medium based candidates.
Soon the above problem will be sorted and the 200 vacancies in History, Commerce and Economics subjects will be filled accordingly, say the sources.
