The West Bengal government has once again changed the dates for primary Teachers Eligibility Test (TET) examination in which around 23 lakh aspirants have

State Chief Secretary Sanjoy Mitra said the exam has now been rescheduled to October 11 keeping in mind flood relief operations, by-elections and various other exams.

The decision was taken after a meeting with Education minister Partha Chatterjee, home secretary and a video conference with district administration and other officials.
