At least a few thousand postgraduates in Tamil Nadu were waiting for the TN TRB Assistant Professor recruitment 2019 online application form in the early morning hours today. After all, the Tamil Nadu Teachers Recruitment Board had announced today’s date as the starting point for application form submission in online mode at trb.tn.nic.in. For the several Assistant Professor aspirants in the state, it is important to apply for this recently published TN TRB Assistant Professor recruitment 2019, with an impressive number of 2,337 vacancies.
However, the job seekers will have to wait a little longer – TN TRB could not start the online applications today due to technical issues. The board, ensuring that candidates do not have to keep refreshing the web page expecting the form to be available anytime, has published a notification confirming the delay.
Today the board published a notification titled “Assistant Professors for Government Arts & Science Colleges and Colleges of Education – Online Application Postponed”. It says – “Due to technical reasons, the online registration for direct recruitment of Assistant Professors in Government Arts & Science Colleges and Colleges of Education (Notification No.12/2019, dated 28.08.2019) is postponed from the scheduled date i.e. 04.09.2019. New date for online registration will be announced shortly.”
Though the notice is not signed, but it has been put up on the official website, thus being valid. Such occurrences are not uncommon where exam conducting bodies have to, sometimes slightly and other times longer, delay online processes due to technical concerns. However, candidates as well as exam conducting bodies prefer online application forms only as the whole online registration system has eliminated several problems that earlier arose with offline forms – such as loss of form in post, delays in postal delivery, damage in transit, and so on.
Teachers Recruitment Board, Government of Tamil Nadu, published the Assistant Professor recruitment 2019 notification on August 28. As per the notification, application form was supposed to start today, and close on September 24. Now that the form has been delayed, there are chances that the last date to apply may also change. Dates for certificate verification and interview were mentioned as “will be announced later” in the notification.
This recruitment would lead to filling up vacant posts in government arts and science colleges in Tamil Nadu. Vertically, 69% vacancies are reserved for communal reservation categories. Which means that 18% are reserved for SC including 3% for Arunthathiyars, 1% for ST, 26.5% for backward classes, 3.5% for backward classes muslims, 20% for most backward classes and denotified communities. 31% vacancies will be filled on the basis of merit.
