According to the notification, recruitment will be made for the posts of school assistants, secondary grade teachers, language pundits, physical education teachers and special education teachers and school assistants in upper primary/secondary schools under the school education department and also under local bodies.

The fresh notification annuls a previous notification issued on September 6 last year for recruitment of 5,089 teacher posts through district selection committees (DSC-2023). The present notification includes additional posts of 4,957 teachers, besides 796 special education teachers at primary level and 220 special education teachers in upper primary and secondary schools in various government and local body schools in the state.

The education department officials said candidates who had applied in response to the DSC-2023 need not apply again as their applications would be automatically carried forward in the fresh notification.

The government has fixed 1,000 per post as fee to be paid towards application processing and written test, and candidates intending to apply for multiple posts should pay 1,000 separately for each post and submit separate applications for each of the post they were applying for.

The candidates should be in the age group of 18-46 years. However, there would be relaxation of age limit for certain categories of applicants.
