CHENNAI: A petition has been filed in the Madras High Court seeking to provide concession in the qualifying marks for reserved category candidates who have applied for Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) in Tamil Nadu. 

Petitioner S Karuppiah of Central and state government Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes Employees Federation said that the May 22 last Teachers Recruitment Board advertisement on the TET, to be held on August 17 and 18, had no mention about minimum qualifying marks for reserved categories. 

The National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE) had in 2011 issued guidelines, which conferred powers to the state governments to consider and give concession to candidates belonging to reserved categories, he submitted. 

Contending that it was illegal, arbitrary and unconstitutional, he prayed the court to call for the records pertaining to the impugned advertisement and quash the same. 

The bench comprising acting Chief Justice Rajesh Kumar Agrawal and Justice M Sathyanarayanan, hearing the matter, ordered notice to the state education department and Member Secretary of Teachers' Recruitment Board.
