Himachal Pradesh chief minister Virbhadra Singh reportedly asked the education department to allow the junior basic trained (JBT) teachers of the 2011-13 batch to appear in the teacher eligibility test (TET) in view of a recent judgment of the Allahabad high court.

This was stated by Vijay Kumar Heer, the state president of Himachal Kranti Manch here on Wednesday. Heer said he had taken up the issue with the chief minister and, accordingly, the CM gave the direction to the education department. He demanded from the education department to give decision with immediate effect. Heer said the high court had allowed a number of NCTE candidates to appear in the TET in Utter Pradesh.

The TET would be held on August 11 and a final announcement in the wake of the recent order of the chief minister was expected before that.
