Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday directed Haryana government to terminate the services of 4,000 surplus guest teachers.
The high court in its orders has directed the Haryana staff selection commission to complete the course of action without any delay.
With this order the state government is in a fix as the guest teachers, who feared losing their jobs, had started protesting and on the other hand around one lakh candidates, who had qualified Haryana Teachers Eligibility Test (HTET), demanded for the recruitment of regular teachers to begin and for the removal of guest teachers who had allegedly got a back door entry since 2005.
The high court in its earlier orders dated March 30, 2011 had directed the state government that the state should appoint regular school teachers before March 31, 2012 and no further extension shall be given to the guest teachers working on contract basis since December 2005.
It was also ordered that after April 1, 2011 there would be no further appointment of guest teachers and if there was any shortfall, the same shall be met by the state by rotating the existing teachers and the selection process shall be strictly adhered.
