Delhi: Not allowed to join civic body schools, 200 teachers protest

The appointments were blocked after the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) ordered revision of the 2018 recruitment exam. The order, however, was revoked Tuesday.

Around 200 people, who were appointed as permanent teachers in MCD schools, protested against the decision of East and South civic bodies to block their induction, outside the East civic body’s office at Patparganj Wednesday. Shortlisted candidates for North Delhi Municipal Corporation schools were allowed to join Wednesday.

Yogesh Kumar (25), who was previously a teacher at a Kendriya Vidyalaya in Madhya Pradesh’s Jabalpur, said, “They said they can appoint us only after we submit our resignation letter. We don’t know what to do now.”

Krishna (22), who too quit his job at a Kendriya Vidyalaya, said, “This is sad; so many of us are left without a job.”

The appointments were blocked after the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) ordered revision of the 2018 recruitment exam. The order, however, was revoked Tuesday.

This is an oral order, not a written one.”

Sharma, however, said: “The SDMC has stopped the induction after learning about the order, and we adopted the same. We are seeking legal opinion…”
