The department’s decision to remove barriers in the promotion path has been welcomed by Ram Murthi Thakur, the State General Secretary of the All Jharkhand Primary Teachers’ Association. Thakur claims that this decision will soon fill 97% of open positions in the state’s middle schools.

Notification of the Director of Primary Education
It has been instructed that the Primary Education Director send out a notification regarding this. The Jharkhand Progressive Teachers’ Association, on the other hand, has been protesting the department’s decision, claiming that it disregarded the pertinent and reasonable letter (770) that was previously sent out for guidance.
What the Whole Issue Is About However, the decision directs the Primary Education Director to develop a new promotion rule for primary teachers appointed directly in Grade Four to Grade Seven (Principal) positions under the Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, by increasing the minimum tenure set by the Initial Teacher Promotion Rules, 1993, from five years to ten years. Additionally, the decision directs the relaxation of the five-year tenure requirement for Grade Four teachers who receive promotions and go on to become principals.
The guidelines used to make this decision are based on the Secondary Teacher Recruitment and Promotion Rules and the Plus Two Teacher Recruitment and Promotion Rules, which is illogical when comparing the promotions of primary teachers, so the decision is not totally fair.
