Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) will soon issue a notification to fill around 17,000 posts of government teachers, Deputy chief minister Kadiyam Srihari said on Thursday.

Replying to a query in the Assembly, Srihari, who also holds education portfolio, said performance of school students across the country is improving continuously, as per the Annual Status of Education Report-2016.

“Over 8,000 teachers will be recruited for the newly set up 529 residential schools. Earlier, a notification for these recruitments was withdrawn due to some issues pertaining to educational qualification of aspiring candidates,” said the minister.

“We have revised them (qualifications) and sent back to State Service Commission. Besides, another 8,972 government teacher posts will be filled and necessary instructions have been given to Telangana State Public Service Commission. So, a total of 17,000 posts will be filled soon,” added Srihari.
