- The exclusion of TGT biology also brought legal hurdles. Due to this, it was decided to cancel the recruitment notification.
- On 29 October 2020 UP Secondary Education Services Selection Board, Prayagraj had released the notification of 15508 vacancies of TGT and PGT teachers.
- The notification included 12913 posts of trained graduate teachers (TGT) and 2595 posts of (PGT). The last date to apply online is 27 November 2020.
There was a lot of opposition to the inclusion of the subject of biology in recruitment. By excluding the subject of biology, ad-hoc teachers of this subject were also being excluded, which was in contempt of the Supreme Court order. The Supreme Court in its order had ordered all ad-hoc teachers to apply for the new recruitment. After considering the problem, it was agreed to include TGT biology in the recruitment and the preparations for a new advertisement were expedited. The discussion was also on to extend the date of application for biology candidates.
The new notification will be soon released by the UP Board and candidates those have registered previously will need to reregister but they no need to pay the requisite fees again.
