West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has written to Union HRD minister Smriti Irani about the shortage of teachers in the state, and requesting her to consider appointment of untrained teachers for limited period. Banerjee also questioned why the Centre exempted other states regarding the same, but not made similar reliefs for Bengal.
The appointment of untrained teachers has been stopped from last month by the Union Ministry. As per the Centre’s rule teachers without training beyond 31 March, 2014 will not be considered for appointments and teachers teaching from Class 8 are required to be trained.
