269 Primary Teacher List

Dear readers, here we are providing 269 Primary Teacher List PDF to all of you. In June, a CBI inquiry was ordered into the 2014 Primary TET corruption case. Passing the order, Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay on June 13 directed the primary education board secretary Ratna Chakraborti Bagchi and president Manik Bhattacharya to appear before the CBI at its office later in the day.

The petitioner alleged that the 269 candidates were given an additional ‘one’ number for a wrong question out of around 23 lakh aspirants in the Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET) in 2014. He claimed that a second panel with names of these 269 candidates was published in 2017.

‘Why were 269 people given an extra 1 mark?’

A section of job seekers have filed cases alleging corruption in recruitment raising the question why 269 people were specifically given an extra mark in the examination.

The board had responded saying that there was something wrong with a question in that year’s (2017) TET exam. But the Calcuttar High Court asked why the rest of the candidates did not receive that extra mark.

The judge also remarked that the litigants were able to prove the allegations of corruption in the Primary TET which has resulted into a CBI inquiry.

In yet another blow to the West Bengal government, in particular the education department, a single-judge bench of the Calcutta High Court on Monday ordered a CBI inquiry into the recruitment of primary teachers by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education (WBBPE) in 2014.

The bench of Justice Avijit Gangopadhyay also ordered immediate cancellation of the appointment of 269 candidates for the post of primary teachers.

While passing the order, Gangopadhyay observed that these 269 candidates secured jobs despite not qualifying in the written examination and some of them did not even appear for the same.

The single-judge bench directed WBBPE to immediately stop payment of salaries to these 269 candidates and also ensure that they are not able to enter the respective schools they were appointed henceforth.

WBBPE came out with a revised and second merit list in 2017 for the recruitment examination conducted in 2014. It was observed that in the revised merit list, these 269 candidates were awarded one additional mark each.

Although the WBBPE authorities explained that this additional one mark for each of these 269 candidates was awarded because of some error in the question paper, the explanation could not satisfy the court.

Justice Gangopadhyay said that by that logic why the additional one mark was awarded only to these 269 candidates, depriving the remaining 23 lakh candidates who appeared for the same examination. Hence the bench also rejected the revised and second merit list that WBBPE came out with in 2017.

Justice Gangopadhyay also directed WBBPE President Manik Bhattacharya and the board’s Secretary Ratna Chakraborty (Bagchi) to be present at the CBI’s Kolkata office by 5.30 PM on Monday with all the supporting documents and answer the questions of the central probe agency sleuths.

The CBI is already conducting a probe into the recruitment irregularities in various teaching and non-teaching posts by the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC). The CBI sleuths have also questioned former Education Minister and Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee twice in this connection.
