Despite nearly 2,000 vacancies, there is a crisis in the recruitment of LP school teachers in the state. In the rank list published by PSC in December 2018, there are 1122 vacancies in Kasargod, Malappuram and Palakkad districts alone. Adding the expected 784 vacancies, including retirement and relocation, there will be 2,000 vacancies. Candidates approached the court against the delay in making the appointment but got a favorable order but to no avail. Meanwhile, the candidates included in the supplementary list also approached the Kerala Administrative Tribunal. The rank list expanded.
On August 24, the tribunal ruled that the maximum number of appointments should be made. However, the appointment came to a standstill after the PSC filed an appeal against it. The PSC is not listening to the pleas of many, including the minister and MLAs, that as many people as possible should be appointed and the appeal should not go.
According to the official website of the education department, there are 213 vacancies in Kasaragod, 779 in Malappuram, and 130 in Palakkad. There are vacancies for LP school teachers in 62 schools in Kasargod. The RTI document issued by the DDE office states that these vacancies will be treated as vacancies and there is no technical impediment to the appointment.
But the argument is that there is no order from above for the appointment alone. At the time of the shortlist, Kasargod had 300 vacancies. The rank list of 1050 persons should be kept for that number. Even more subversive. Only a list of 294 people was published. The remaining 500 were added to the supplementary list. Vacancies There is also the problem of not reporting to PSC from the DDE office. Officials say the appointment was delayed because schools were not open due to the Kovid issue. But the candidates also allege that some games are being played in the ranks to delay the appointment as much as possible. The education department and the PSC are trying to deliberately delay the appointment by narrowing down the cases
