Madras High Court : TET Not Applicable to Minority Institutions

The High Court of Madras has given judgement stating that Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) is not applicable to the aided and unaided minority institutions. M V Muralidharan and Huluvadi G Ramesh, a division bench of Justices clearly pointed the Article 30 which enables the right to religious minorities to administer and establish educational institutions.

The bench also cited the case of Pramati Educational and Cultural Trust that kept minority institutions outside the influence of RTE Act. Supreme Court gave the judgement regarding this case.

The High Court mentioned that the Article 30 of the Indian constitution cannot be violated and hence TET is not mandatory to minority institutions in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. The government should not insist these schools regarding TET.

The petition was filed in High Court when the minority schools sought the approval of the appointment of teachers who were appointed against sanctioned posts; the authorities rejected the proposal as the teachers did not clear TET.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
