Silchar, September 15, 2016 (Chronicle News Service): Hmar Students' Association (HSA), Barak Valley, on Wednesday urged the Assam education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, urging him to exempt the TET-qualified Hmar candidates from the criteria of having Diploma in Elementary Education (D.EI.Ed) for filling up the online application form 2016 for the appointment of candidates against various vacant posts.

The students' body submitted a memorandum to the education minister through Cachar district administration on Wednesday.

 "There were 93 Hmar candidates who qualified TET in 2014. Of them, 38 were engaged in different schools on contractual basis. The government regularized the posts of 19 in 2016. But, 36 TET passed unemployed candidates have not yet been absorbed. These candidates who have been desperately waiting for their turn have faced a major setback for no fault of theirs. Their future has become uncertain due to mandatory requirement of D.EI.Ed degree," said Jonathan Vaiphei, education secretary of the body.

He added that none of the 36 Hmar candidates had D.EI.Ed degree due to shortage of seats in the District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) centres. "The present situation has created frustration in the minds of the educated Hmars," said the memorandum.

"We appreciate the government's D.EI.Ed policy, but at the same time we urge the Assam government not to deprive the educated unemployed TET qualified candidates belonging to Hmar and non-Hmar communities and they should be exempted from the criteria of having D.EI.Ed certificate to apply for the appointment in vacant posts," said Vaiphei.
