Action Plan for creation of 7643 posts for RReTs approved

With a view to addressing transition of non-graduate Regularized Rehbar-e-Taleem Teachers (RReTs) under the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) as regular teachers in the School Education Department, the State Administrative Council (SAC) headed by Governor, Satya Pal Malik has approved the Action Plan proposed by the School Education Department.

The plan has been fomulated on the basis of recommendations of the designated Committee, an official spokesperson said.

For outright implementation of the Action Plan proposed by the School Education Department on the basis of the report of the above Committee, SAC has approved creation of 7643 posts of Teacher Grade-III in the pay scale of Rs 25500-81100 (L-4) by corresponding reduction of an equivalent number of supernumerary posts of Teachers Grade-II.

Grade-III has been created exclusively for the purpose of transition/ appointment of non-graduate RReTs. The cadre of Teacher Grade-III will get subsumed/merged or restored to Teacher Grade-II, once the Teacher Grade-III are appointed as Teacher Grade-II or vacate the post on superannuation/resignation/demise whichever is earlier or in the event of abolition of any of these posts, if the need arises.

The posts of Teacher Grade-III will be filled-up 100% by selection out of RReTs who are not graduates but otherwise eligible for appointment in government service as per the laid down procedure. This will include verification of their character and antecedents, educational qualification and other certificates/documents including an undertaking as required for appointment to government service.
