A new twist has emerged in the 69000 UP Super TET Recruitment Case 2019. The Lucknow bench of Allahabad Court has put an interim stay on the 6800 recruitments made by the State Government in January 2022 stating that no recruitment can be made without any advertisement. The 69000 UP Super TET Recruitment was announced on 1st December 2018 through an advertisement and the Super TET Exam took place in 2019. However, the recruitment process has been embroiled in controversy since the results were declared. For the same reasons this recruitment process has gone to Supreme Court from Allahabad High Court many time for alleged irregularities in the process.

A petitioner has alleged that the list of additional selected 6800 candidates by the state government is against the intention of the law. The High Court has acknowledged no recruitment process can take place without an official advertisement issued by the government and no such recruitment advertisement was issued for the 6800 vacancies.
On 5th January 2022, the state government had released the list of additional selected 6800 candidates in continuance to the 69000 vacancies released in 2018. The recruitment process to fill 69000 vacancies began in 2018. However, after the process was over the reserved category candidates started protesting stating that the marks obtained by some reserved category candidates was higher than the cut-off marks of general category then how come they didn’t recruited. After reconsidering the matter, the government came up with a recruitment list of 6800 reserved category candidates to fill up the vacancies.
However, now the High Court has observed that as the Supreme Court of India has stated earlier to not fill up any additional vacancies which was not mentioned on the advertisement released on 1st December 2018 regarding the 69000 vacancies. Based on the directive from Supreme Court, no one can employee even a single employee more than the advertised 69000 in any circumstance. High Court has asked the government to come up with a suitable solution as they are ones who has created such critical situation in the first place.
The next hearing has been scheduled for 18th February 2022. Now, it would be interesting to see the response the government will come up with on this matter. The High Court has issued the notice to the concerned parties regarding the same matter.
