High Court allowed SSC to publish result
The Calcutta High Court today allowed the School Service Commission of West Bengal to publish the results for primary school teachers' recruitment exam, but with a mention of the pendency of a writ petition on it.


Hearing a petition by some examinees claiming that some questions for the written examination were outside the prescribed syllabus, Justice Biswanath Somadder directed that the results be published with the rider.

The court directed that the commission will have to mention the pendency of the writ petition before it in the published results.

The petitioners had claimed that 35 questions were from outside the syllabus, following which the court had asked the National Council for Teacher Education to examine them.

In a report placed before the court, NCTE stated that 28 questions were from matters outside the prescribed syllabus, while it was yet to assess the other seven, as they were in Bengali and the translated versions were yet to be made available.

Over 55 lakh candidates had appeared for around 34,000 vacancies for primary teachers in March this year. The matter would be heard again after the Durga Puja vacation, the court directed.
