AGARTALA, July 30 (TIWN): So many meetings are going on the Education Dept to give advise to Education Minister Ratanlal Nath how to develop quality education in schools. But question raises why none of these advisors asks Minister to recruit teachers immediately when more than thousand qualified candidates are waiting to be recruited ? Tripura School Education and also Higher Education both are suffering due to teachers crisis situations amid huge numbers of qualified youths are left jobless. The slow-going recruitment process has hit quality education in Tripura due to acute teachers crisis whereas TET qualified youths left jobless. Around thousands of qualified job aspirants have expressed resentments about recruitment delays, which the Govt is unable to handle under unknown reasons. Tripura Govt has to focus on Teachers Recruitment as well as recruitments in other departments. Total 1141 TET qualified B.ed holders are left jobless. At the same time, having a huge numbers of qualified people, Tripura facing towards massive unemployment rate at 26.2%.Since many years, there was no proper recruitment in Colleges and especially since last 5 years the NET, SLET qualified youths have been suffering the most. Maximum are bound to work as Guest Lecturers and after many protests also Govt remained in slumber.

In case of College recruitments, same situations are going on. Even though State is applauded by the great achievement of Tripura University students in the academic the year 2018-19 as a total of 64 candidates from various departments (including Journalism, Commerce, Library Science, Sociology, Physics, Chemistry, Bengali, Geography, English and others) have cracked the NET/SET examinations conducted by University Grant Commission and North-East SLET Commission, but a big question mark remains on their careers as over thousands of NET/SET qualified youths left either unemployed or guest lecturer of Colleges for years after years. The previous CPI-M Govt had introduced guest lecturer posts in Tripura Colleges due to shortage of teachers but gradually guest lecturers became the backbone of the Colleges and professor/lecturer crisis have been hitting the Colleges quality education.

High Education in Tripura is suffering from disability following 25 years of a constant Left regime. Even though a new Govt BJP has taken charge, but unemployment toll has hiked too high and already many are near to be overaged. When state govt appointed thousands of guest lecturers in the past few years with the excuse of teachers crisis, in reality NET, SLET Qualified youths are not being appointed in Colleges, even though in 2017's ending TPSC called candidates at last following constant pressures from various sides.
