Govt committed to filling up vacant posts of teachers through H.P Public Service Commission: Rohit Thakur

Education Minister Shri Rohit Thakur, in a statement issued here today, contradicted the statement reported in some newspapers regarding the appointment of teachers on an ad hoc basis. He said that the shortage of teachers in the department has been a longstanding issue but the State Government would take appropriate action to address this problem.  He said that the State Government is committed to filling up the vacant posts of teachers through the H.P Public Service Commission, batch-wise recruitment, promotion and by rationalization of the staff so that study of students does not hamper for want of teachers. It is pertinent to mention that more than 12000 posts of teaching staff are vacant in the State mostly in far-flung and tribal areas of the State.

The Education Minister said that the decision regarding the recruitment of teachers would be taken keeping in view the interests of the students to ensure quality education and purely on the basis of merit. The State Government is committed to maintaining transparency in the recruitment process across all the departments including the Education Department and adopting a fair and transparent recruitment process is the top priority of the present State Government.
