Teacher Grade 3 Level-1 Recruitment Exam

A bench of the Rajasthan High Court issued instructions for the re-examination of disputed questions and answers from the Teacher Grade 3 Level-1 Recruitment 2023 examination. The court has directed an expert committee to undertake this review, mandating them to investigate the contentious questions within a 15-day timeframe. The committee's investigation is expected to rely on educational materials from the state education board and NCERT, with a requirement to submit a detailed report upon completion of their assessment.

Justice Sudesh Bansal, presiding over the bench, issued this interim order during the hearing of petitions filed by Nidhi Chaudhary and others. Advocates Vigyan Shah and Rampratap Saini, representing the petitioners, informed the court that the Rajasthan Staff Selection Board had advertised 21,000 positions for the Teacher Grade 3 Level-1 examination. Following the written examination, the board had released a preliminary answer key and invited objections from candidates.

The petitioners' responses in the initial answer key were accurate. However, the board subsequently established an expert committee to review the matter, resulting in the removal of answers for approximately 22 questions and modifications to the answers in the final answer key. Consequently, based on this final answer key, the petitioner was no longer eligible to proceed in the selection process. As a result, our argument in court centered on the contention that the minimum qualification for candidates in the recruitment process was a 12th-grade education with a diploma.

However, in the case of the final answer key, the expert committee utilized post-graduation level textbooks and materials from private publishers to determine the answers, neglecting to consider the books endorsed by the state government and recognized institutions as the primary reference. "Given this circumstance, the report submitted by the committee is deemed inaccurate," stated Shah. Consequently, Saini asserted, "Therefore, the committee should be directed to re-evaluate the disputed questions, using NCERT and Board books as the foundation for their assessment."
