The Lucknow bench of Allahabad High Court has stayed its single-bench order of June 3 on the appointment of 69,000 basic teachers in Uttar Pradesh. The High Court today made it clear that Uttar Pardesh government is at liberty to continue the selection process of basic teachers keeping in mind the Supreme Court order of June 9. The Yogi Adityanath-led government had challenged Allahabad High Court single-bench order staying the appointment process of 69,000 assistant basic teachers in the state.
Passing the order, a division bench comprising justices PK Jaiswal and D K Singh said the state government was free to continue with the selection process, keeping in mind the June 9 order of the Supreme Court by which about 37,000 posts have been kept for Siksha Mitras.
On rest of the posts, the state government can start counselling which had stopped on June 3 after the single bench's order, it said.
