The Allahabad High Court has ordered that the candidates having Banaras Hindu University's B.Ed. Special Education degree, approved by the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI), should be provisionally allowed to appear in the UP TET 2018 exam. However, the court clarified that only sitting in the examination won't mean that the petitioners will be entitled to any right. The court has asked the state government and National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) to respond to the petition within four weeks.
A bench of Justice PKS Baghel and Justice Salil Kumar Rai passed this order while hearing a petition filled by Vijay Shyam Pal and 90 others. Earlier, the court had given similar relief in Ashutosh Kumar Singh's case. The petitioners have been allowed to appear in the exam on the basis of similarity with the case. They had challenged the validity of the notification of the NCTE 28 June 2018.
During the exam, students will not be allowed to gather near the bathroom and a separate guard will be deputed do ensure that only one person at a time is allowed to use the loo. Also, a cell inspector will continue to monitor such students to ensure that they don't use improper means in any way or go out of the center premises.
