ITANAGAR, Feb 28:  Claiming illegal appointment of teachers in the Education Department, Arunachal Pradesh Post Graduate Teachers’ Association (APPGTA) has demanded revocation of teachers appointed recently, claiming that some appointments were made violating recruitment rules. 
The association appealed to the Department of Education to rectify the existing Recruitment Rules (RR) of HM/VP for Post Graduate Teachers (PGT) appointment, while terming the existing RR as defective. It has also appealed for promotions to be done in seniority basis.
Addressing reporters  at the Arunachal Press Club (APC) here on Wednesday, APPGTA Secretary Hari Techi informed that on January 3, 2024, the department of education had appointed 87 teachers for various posts. Some of the appointments were made by violating the RR, as it has appointed teachers who are in service for 7-8 years only. Whereas, as per RR, teachers who are in service for 10 years are eligible for the appointment.
The recent appointments have also violated the resolution taken during a minutes of meeting held on February 4, 2023, under the chairmanship of the Minister of Education, Er. Taba Tedir, regarding demands placed by the Arunachal Teachers’ Association (ATA), he added.
During the meeting a resolution was passed stating ‘both the directorates of secondary and elementary education shall complete the framing of pending RRs of all posts of their respective directorates process within six months’. 
The ATA-CEC shall submit their suggestions on the proposed RR to the Education Department within 10 days. Until then, no appointment should be made in District Adult Education Officer (DAEO), APO and Block Education Officer (BEO) posts’, he added.
“We are not against the appointments, but we want appointments to be made as per the RR,” said Techi while demanding revocation of those illegal appointees.\
He has expressed sentiment towards ATA CEC over their silence on this issue, while alleging them of taking official benefits of this issue.
“ATA CEC should resign on moral ground, if they cannot voice for the welfare of teachers of the state,” said Techi, while questioning the ATA federal units for not raising their voice on the issue.
Further, he informed that ‘officiating’ is still happening in the education department, even after the assurance given by the CM to discontinue the same, while appealing the state government to look into the matter.
