(Is Official Policy of Govts, whether It is State or Central (With authority of Ministry) is optional for implementation by another arm of Government?. Repeated request, for making it clear, have been made to all concerned, Incl NCTE, HQs. I request a graceful attention of Min of Def, Min of Home (Dte of Education and Trg), Govt of Pers, Govt of India and Hon’ble Min of Edn, Mr. Bratya Bosu, Govt of WB and NCTE. Otherwise also an EXSM with Matriculation and Minimum 15 yrs of dedicated Service for the country, is given an Graduation Certificate, which is accepted by all the States, U/T of India, Banks , PSUs, Govt U/Takings. Why shall it not work here? once Govt of India also defined to State Govt(School Edn Deptt (Pry Br)) to entertain the eligibility as Graduation). Request, to take a kind concern, to the competent authority.

      • senatanu66

        Dear Sir,
        As per “National Employment Service Manual-Vol-II” Sl No-8 of APPENDIX 1(8) at Page-99, clearly says I.A.F Educational Test(for promotion to the rank of Corporal)is Recognised as equivalent to “Higher Secondary Examination of a Recognised Board or Pre University Examination”. But the sad part is that it is “Only for those airmen who are Matriculates and have passed the LAC Reclassification Test and the IAF Educational Test under Scheme‘A’ (Non- Matriculate airmen qualifying IAF Educational Test for promotion to the rank of Corporal will not be eligible for the award of Certificate equating with Higher Secondary /PUC Examination)”. Though the Graduation part in that recent order for ‘up-gradation of Qualification’ does makes a sense! Ex Servicemen of KPSC(i.e Kolkata Primary School Council) are given a waiver in this regard. But, I feel, councils are not appropriate authorities for issuing such waiver. They will have to take clearance from NCTE, which (i.e. that clearance) invariably has to be an order. See here http://www.dget.nic.in/dex/esm/Vol.II-part%20I%20to%20IV.pdf

  • Raja Dey

    up gradation of qualification of primary school teachers is a good idea but after up gradation will the government also up grade the pay scale. A central school primary teachers get the pay scale: 9300-34800 with grade pay 4200 at the time of appointment with DA, HRA and other allowances much much more than us. Government has decided that all the teachers should have the minimum educational qualification as well as teachers training according to central act but when government will also started paying their teachers the same.

    • saradindu dua

      salary may increase but most probably not up to grade pay 4200. Because
      The pay commission is of opinion that comparison drawn between central govt. employee and state govt employee is not valid.Although Delhi is also giving this grade pay.

  • Babli Roy

    I joined Primary School as Asst. Teacher in August 2003. I have passed one year PTT in 1992. As per my knowledge PTT Course became two years, effective from 1995. Then should I have to undertake one year bridge course to make my PTT “Two years training “? If so, is it not unjustified as one year training remained legal for PTT before 1995?

  • RABISANKAR SAMANTA

    Government of West Bengal, School Education Department notified fof enhancement of qualification of primary school teacher vide notification no.277-SE(P)/10M-6/09(Pt-I)-28th March,2012 as to meet the qualificatiom prescribed by NCTE w.e.f 03/09/2001 i.e. qualification for appointment of primary teacher are passed Senior Secondary (10+2/H.S) and two years Diploma in Education(D.Ed).
    i observed that teachers with Diploma in Engineering/ Work Education falls under pay scale Rs. 7100-37600 plus Grade Pay Rs.3900.
    Whereas Diploma in Engineering is done after Secondary Examination and duration of Diploma in Engineering are three years.
    Whereas Primary School Teachers Qualifications will be after enhancement of qualification Diploma in Education two years plus Senior Secondary two years total four years and i also saw that Diploma in Engineering course after Senior Secondary are two years.
    So in this present situtation primary school teacher are eligible for pay scale Rs. 7100-37600 plus Grade Pay Rs. 3900 with similar pay of teachers with Diploma in Engineering .
    So it is right time to associate Primary School Teacher for the movement of claiming pay scale Rs. 7100-37600 plus Grade Pay Rs. 3900.
    Therefore i appeal to all primary school teachers in west bengal who were appointed after 03/09/2001 form an association for the movement for the pay scaleRs. 7100-37600 plus Grade Pay Rs. 3900.
    With warm regards to all.

    • Alok Shukla

      On your change of pay band from current one i am agree with you. But according to my view and knowledge our demand may not be considered on the logic that the professions are different.
      Therefore I suggest and highly recommend to demand the increased pay on another ground.
      What is the ground?
      Since the appointment of primary teachers are on the basis of Matriculation qualification. They are getting present Basic pay band irrespective of their higher qualification. Now since the government has raised their qualification to HS the basic salary structure needs to be changed accordingly.They should be paid HS grade as in the other states like UP,Bihar,Delhi etc along with training grade pay after completion of their D EL ED. Not only this as in some cases graduation has been accepted therefore those who have higher qualification must be paid higher scales according to their higher qualification.

  • Satya Brata Dutta

    I am a primary teacher joined on14-06-2010 in ex-serviceman category. My educational qualification is H.S with 44.4% in science stream (1985). Defence service had given me graduation equivalent certificate for Group ’C’ post in future rehabilitation as per central govt. existing policy during leaving service. Will it be given same recognition by the state govt.? If ‘yes’ then is it necessary to upgrade the HS marks? Is it possible to upgrade it in other stream during bridge-course?

    • senatanu66

      As per your Date of Enrollment, being a Graduate (be it civil / Military or whatsoever it might be), will not help you out. Graduate Teachers appointed on or after 23-08-2010, will only have the privilege to forget about their HS qualification/percentages !

    • senatanu66

      However, there seems to be a silver lining present for Ex-serviceman in this regard. For Air Force ExSm I.A.F Educational Test (for promotion to the rank of Corporal) or equivalent in case of Army and Navy is recognised as equivalent to Higher Secondary Examination of a recognized Board or Pre University Examination (Only for those airmen who are Matriculates and have passed the LAC Reclassification Test and the IAF Educational Test under Scheme ‘A’ (Non- Matriculate airmen qualifying IAF Educational Test for promotion to the rank of Corporal will not be eligible.
      For Army and Navy “Army Qualification recognised by the Central Government and State Governments” see this link about “NATIONAL EMPLOYMENT SERVICE MANUAL, Page-99,APPENDIX 1(8) Serial No 1 to 8, ” of ‘Directorate General of Employment & Training (DGET) Ministry of Labour & Employment Government of India’ and act accordingly. I feel, you need not to upgrade your HS(10+2) percentage http://dget.nic.in/dex/esm/Vol.II-part%20I%20to%20IV.pdf . Now regarding percentages of the above said examinations, at this moment I am having only the Air Force authority. Download “Regulations for the Air Force” from this link and see Chapter XIX-Education Section-2 Paragraph-1080 and related paragraphs. http://indianairforce.nic.in/show_page.php?pg_id=110
      Hope this will help you out.

      In Air Force the Certificate issued by the IAF is auhtorised and recognised by the Cabinet Secctt, Govt of India and also recongnised as Indian University apart from receiving recognition from at least 15 Universities of India not only for Service but for onward study against that Certificate. The Matriculate recruited soldier , who have put up at least 15 years of Service, are equal to a Graduate in all respect except where an technical and professional experience is not essential. The above sentences are printed on those Certificates itself and GOI Authority for the both is referred.

    IMPORTANT QUERY:( with a little correction )

    I AM A PRIMARY TEACHER JOINED ON 07/01/11, WITH
    QUALIFICATION: 43.7 % IN H.S(1997) , B.Sc. WITH 1 YR. PTTI.
    now, AS PER NOTIFICATION I HAVE TO… GO THROUGH D.Ed 1YR MORE….

    serious fear:

    there should be an option of “GRADUATION” in the required Qualification / criteria zone in time of Admission in 1 yr. extra D.Ed.
    or if not then it will violet the specified qualification under clause-3 i.e ‘ Graduation’ and ultimately will ask for 50% in H.S.
