UP: Yogi Government cancels recruitment of 4000 Urdu teachers started during Akhilesh government

The Uttar Pradesh government under Yogi Adityanath has cancelled the recruitment of 4000 Urdu teachers initiated by the previous administration. The government has reportedly halted the recruitment because it believes there are sufficient Urdu teachers already. The announcement was made by Additional Chief Secretary of Basic Education Department of Uttar Pradesh.

The recruitment process began in December, 2016 during the Akhilesh Yadav led Samajwadi Party regime. Applications were submitted till January, 2017 and the counseling process was to begin in March the same year. However, as soon as BJP came to power, the Yogi Adityanath led government halted the recruitment process.

As per reports, the candidates had filed a petition against the Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Board in the High Court following which the Court had ruled in favour of the applicants and directed the government to complete the recruitment process. However, as per reports, a review petition will soon be filed against the order by the state government.

As per Jagran, there are currently 15800 Urdu teachers in Uttar Pradesh while students number at approximately 87000. Thus, the numbers indicate that there are 2 teachers for every 11 students. The state government considers that there are already more Urdu teachers than what is required and more teachers of the subject are not needed. The government is expected to make these arguments in the High Court in defense of its decision to scrap the recruitment process.
