Thursday was the hearing of a case related to recruitment fraud. During the hearing today, Justice Biswajit Basu ordered that within two weeks, i.e. by February 2, the state should inform the number of teachers and non-teaching staff employed in the secondary and higher secondary schools of the state in the last six years. The judge ordered the state to submit the complete account of the recruitment of 23,000 candidates in the last six years.
The state is plagued by recruitment corruption cases. Recently, a complaint was filed against a candidate and the headmaster of that school for getting a job on fake documents in a school in Murshidabad. However, it can be seen that the district school inspector does not have any documents on the appointment of that candidate! After that, the shocked judge questioned how the candidate got paid for the past three years despite the discrepancy in the appointment letter! He added, there may be more signs of such incidents in the state. After that, the judge ordered the state to publish the accounts of teaching and non-teaching staff appointed in secondary and higher secondary schools in the last six years.

Incidentally, since 2016, a total of 23,000 candidates were recruited in stages even though there was a recruitment test. Among them, Class IX to XII teachers, Group ‘C’ and Group ‘D’ staff have been appointed. This time the district school inspectors will check whether all these candidates were appointed properly.
