(Aditya Shaw, Intern Journalist): The Supreme Court on Friday reserved its decision in a case related to the recruitment of 69000 assistant teachers (Shiksha Mitra) in the state of Uttar Pradesh. A bench headed by Justice UU Lalit reserved its decision after hearing the counsel for the petitioner (s). In the petition, the Uttar Pradesh Primary Education Friends Association challenged the order to recruit 69000 assistant teachers of Allahabad High Court. The basis of Yachika is on the issue of cut-off marks for recruitment, which was raised by the UP government.

The Court heard the Council on several issues on whether qualified teachers scoring above 45/40 should be appointed. Against this backdrop, the UP government increased the cut-off marks to 65/60 in the 2019 examination, leaving 32,629 Shiksha Mitra candidates. The Allahabad High Court had affirmed the state government’s decision to have high cut-off marks for the recruitment of 69,000 teachers in primary schools in the state.
