MADURAI: The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court on Friday vacated the stay on the Teachers Recruitment Board (TRB) exam to recruit special teachers. In a petition, the litigants, Rajeshkanna and Kumar, stated that the TRB issued a notification for conducting a written exam to recruit special teachers in July.
While so, the eligibility criteria set by the TRB for the recruitment of physical education teachers did not follow the norms mandated by the Central government’s National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE). Hence, the petitioners prayed for a stay on TRB exam slated for September 23.
When the petition came up before a Justice T Raja on Friday, he granted an interim stay on the exam.
However, the TRB appealed against the order before a division bench in the evening, stating that it had followed all the norms for conducting the TRB exam. When the appeal petition was heard by the division bench of Justices M M Sundresh and N Sathish Kumar, they vacated the stay issued by the single judge.
