In a significant development for aspiring government teaching job seekers eyeing positions as Primary Teachers in Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) across India, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has recently made noteworthy changes to the eligibility criteria. If you’ve applied for the PRT (Primary Teacher) posts through Advertisement No. 16/2022, this news is of utmost importance to you.
What Has Changed?
The pivotal alteration pertains to the minimum qualification required for recruitment as a primary teacher in Kendriya Vidyalayas. Previously, candidates holding a B.Ed degree were considered eligible for these positions. However, in accordance with a recent notice issued by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, applicants with a B.Ed degree will now need to upload their D.El.Ed certificate.
If you are one of the applicants who possess a B.Ed degree and have applied for the PRT positions, it is imperative that you take action promptly. You must upload your D.El.Ed certificate to meet the revised eligibility criteria. Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan has facilitated this process by opening an online application correction window.
The online application correction window will be available from 9 am on September 13th, 2023 and will remain open until 00.59 pm on Sunday, September 17th. This limited window provides you with the opportunity to ensure that your application aligns with the new criteria.
The reason behind this change can be traced back to a Supreme Court ruling on August 11, 2023. In response to a related case, the apex court canceled the rules previously established by the National Council of Teacher Education (NCTE). The Supreme Court’s order stipulated that only candidates holding a D.El.Ed certificate would be eligible to teach at the primary level.
It’s important to note that, as per the NCTE’s regulations, B.Ed candidates could previously apply conditionally for primary teacher positions, provided they produced a D.El.Ed certificate within six months of their appointment.
For those who have already applied for PRT positions under this recruitment and have uploaded their B.Ed certificates as part of their educational qualifications, it is imperative that you adhere to the revised requirements. Make use of the online application correction window within the specified dates to ensure your eligibility aligns with the latest criteria set forth by Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan.
