Uttar Pradesh Government Issues Guidelines for Education Service Selection Commission

The recruitment process for teachers and instructors in the state, the Uttar Pradesh government, under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, has issued a comprehensive notification outlining the rules for the Uttar Pradesh Education Service Selection Commission (UPESSC).

According to an official release, the guidelines stipulate that candidates invited for interviews, following the written examination, must be awarded a minimum of 40% marks. However, the maximum marks permissible for the interview stage are capped at 90%. The UPESSC will oversee the recruitment of instructors in basic, secondary, and higher education, as well as vocational education, and teachers in aided minority colleges across the state.

The Examination Committee will determine the number of candidates to be interviewed in a day and the overall number of boards to be conducted daily, based on the needs of the recruitment process. Moreover, the number of candidates called for interviews will range from 3 to 5 times the number of vacancies, as deemed appropriate by the Commission.

For positions requiring interviews, a merit list will be released by combining the marks obtained in the written examination and the interview. In cases where only a written exam is conducted, a merit list will be prepared based on the written exam marks alone.

In instances where candidates have equal merits, preference will be given to the marks obtained in the written exam, followed by interview scores. If parity persists, eligibility percentages such as JRF, NET, PhD, and postgraduate scores will be considered. Additionally, in the event of identical scores across all criteria, priority will be given to the candidate with higher age.

The release also outlines a meticulous process for candidate replacements, should the initially selected candidate be unable to assume the post. The selected candidate, upon explaining the reasons for non-acceptance, will submit their application to the Director, who will then recommend an adjustment to the Commission. The Commission will subsequently hold the institution or appointing authority accountable for any discrepancies in the requisition process.

This move by the Uttar Pradesh government is anticipated to bring transparency and efficiency to the teacher and instructor recruitment process, ensuring that the most qualified and suitable candidates are selected for these crucial roles in the education sector.
