Tripura High Court cancels jobs of 10,323 teachers

Agartala: The Tripura High Court Wednesday terminated services of 10,323 school teachers recruited by the state government and asked it to arrange fresh recruitment process by December 2014.

A division bench of the high court comprising Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Swapan Chandra Das passed the order on a batch of 58 petitions filed by those who had failed to secure the jobs.

The court also heard the views of the state government and the complainants before passing the judgment.

The Tripura government had recruited 1,100 post-graduate, 4,617 graduate, and 4,606 under-graduate teachers in the past three years and they are already in service.

No reaction from the state government over the verdict was immediately available. The main opposition Congress and Tripura Pragatisheel Grameen Congress welcomed the decision of the court and sought fresh recruitment process.

The Tripura government's recruitment of 4,606 under-graduate teachers five months back had led to a statewide agitation by a section of unemployed youths and various political parties, including the Congress, Trinamool Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party, with the Left Front government being accused of failure to provide jobs.
