Taking a major policy decision, the Telangana Government on Wednesday scrapped the District Selection Committee (DSC) to recruit teachers. Instead, from now on, all recruitments to fill teachers’ posts will be done through Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC).
The State Government had issued a circular on March 2, 2015, requesting all the administrative departments to examine the feasibility of entrusting the task to fill up the direct recruitment posts in respect of Corporations, Public Sector Units, Local bodies, etc., under their administrative control through the TSPSC. Based on their feedback, it has been decided to fill up the Direct Recruitment vacancies of all the Teacher posts under the control of the Director of School Education, Telangana, Hyderabad, which are now being done through District Selection Committees (DSCs) at the District level, i.e., School Assts., Language Pandits, Secondary Grade Teachers, Physical Education Teachers through the TSPSC.
According to Special Chief Secretary (School Education Dept) Ranjeev R. Acharya, the decision has been taken for better uniformity, consistency and proper selection procedures.
The State Government has also decided to fill up the Direct Recruitment vacancies in the Model Schools under the control of the Director of School Education & Ex-Officio Project Director, RMSA, Telangana, Hyderabad, which are now being done through the State Selection Committee i.e. Principals, Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs) and Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) through the TSPSC.
