Lucknow: The Yogi government has released the notification regarding the rules of the Uttar Pradesh Education Service Selection Commission (UPESSC), which is responsible for the recruitment of teachers in the state.
It is mentioned under the rules that for the recruitment process of teachers and instructors, it will be mandatory to give minimum 40 percent marks to the candidates invited for interview on the basis of written examination. However, they can receive a maximum of 90 percent marks in the interview.
It is noteworthy that the Yogi government has established the commission to ensure fair and transparent selection of qualified and capable teachers and instructors in the state. This commission will conduct examinations for the recruitment of instructors of basic, secondary and higher education as well as vocational education and teachers of aided minority colleges in the state.
Candidates for interviews will be 3 to 5 times the number of vacancies
Out of the successful candidates in the written examination, the number of candidates to be interviewed in one Board in a day and the number of Boards to be conducted each day will be decided by the Examination Committee as needed.
Furthermore, the number of candidates called for interviews from among the successful candidates in the written exam will be 3 to 5 times the number of vacancies (as deemed appropriate by the Commission). All candidates who obtain the final marks (cutoff) will be invited for interview.
Process to be applied in case of equal marks
For the positions of teacher or instructor where interviews are necessary, the commission will release a merit list by combining the marks obtained in the written exam and the interview. In cases where only a written exam is conducted, the commission will prepare a merit list panel based on the marks obtained in the written exam only.
If the merit of more than one candidate is equal, the first preference will be given to the marks obtained in the written exam. If the marks in the written exam are also equal, then the marks obtained in the interview will be considered. In case both marks are equal, the maximum percentage of eligibility (JRF, NET, Ph.D.) will be considered, and if they are still equal, the postgraduate scores will be considered in the end.
If the percentage marks in the written exam, interview, and mandatory eligibility are the same, priority will be given to the candidate with higher age.
Selected candidate will have to submit application when unable to take up the position
If the candidate selected by the Commission is unable to take up the post in the allotted organization due to faulty recruitment or due to appointment of a dependent of an employee who died during service or due to any order of the Supreme Court or High Court or termination of the post, then a separate process will be followed for their replacement.
The selected candidate, explaining the reasons for not accepting the responsibility, must submit their application to the Director. The Director, after conducting a detailed investigation on the application submitted by the candidate, will determine responsibility against the institution or appointing authority responsible for sending the erroneous requisition and will send his recommendation report to the Commission for adjustment of the selected candidate. On the basis of the report and recommendation of the Director, the Commission will make adjustment of the selected candidate.
