The West Bengal Board of Primary Education (WBBPE) has announced the names of the candidates who have qualified for the WB Primary TET 2014. According to the board, the list was published as per the verdict of the Calcutta High Court in the wake of the 2014 TET case. Candidates whose names have been mentioned in the list are the writ petitioners who have qualified for TET 2014 after getting a maximum of 06 marks for the wrong answers attempted in case they were not earlier awarded.
After computing the total scores of the petitioners, panels for appointing eligible petitioners for the 738 vacancies will be set up. These candidates will now have to go through scrutiny, document verification, viva voce, and aptitude test at the Kolkata Primary School Council. The petitioners have further been instructed to carry their original documents, ID proof, and TET admits cards along with one photocopy of each of the documents.
The issue goes back to 2014 when there was a mistake in the TET question paper. It was the Board’s mistake. Although the Calcutta High Court pointed out the mistake, the Primary Education Board did not rectify the same. There were a total of 06 incorrect questions in the paper. The Calcutta High Court directed the Board to give full marks to the candidates who had answered the wrong questions. However, it was alleged that the same was not done.
Due to this, many job-seeking candidates had to suffer from harassment. These candidates, later on, filed another case against WBBPE. The Calcutta High Court judge Abhijit Gangopadhyay ordered that each of the 19 plaintiffs must be paid Rs 20,000 by the Board. As a result, the Board President had to pay Rs 03 lakh and 60 thousand rupees as a fine.
