After five years, they will be considered for regularisation in service, says a School Education department order.
In June 2003, the Government, citing a financial crunch, unveiled a policy, by which all teacher vacancies arising after June 1, 2003 would be filled with recruitment in the new cadre.
The method of recruitment and posting was detailed in a June 27 order.
The policy came into immediate effect. That day, there were about 12,000 vacancies in primary, middle, secondary and higher secondary schools, run by the Government and local bodies.
These included 2,256 in elementary schools, 5,599 among graduate teachers, 1,202 among secondary grade teachers and 2,010 among postgraduate teachers, besides a smaller number among language, arts, music and physical educators.
In the latest order, the Government has notified the amendment to laws governing aided schools, so that school committees can appoint junior secondary grade teachers on a pay of Rs. 3,000, junior teachers for nursery, Montessori and kindergarten schools at Rs. 2,500, junior grade B. Ed. teachers (including language teachers) at Rs. 4,000 and junior grade postgraduate assistants at Rs. 4,500.
As per the amendment to Rule 15, a clause has been inserted by which the committee of every private school should enter into an agreement with the person appointed junior grade teacher.
The order has also laid down the qualifications for new recruits.
Meanwhile, the Teachers Recruitment Board has released the results of the written examinations conducted in mid-November for postgraduate junior assistants and junior physical education directors.
