Subject- Teacher eligibility Test certificate validity lifetime.

The Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) pass certificate was previously valid for only 7 years. From now on, if the candidates pass the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET), the certificate will be valid for the rest of their lives, Hon’ble Union Education Minister Shri Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank said last Thursday.
Union Education Minister Ramesh ji announced that the government has decided to extend the validity of TET pass certificates from seven years to life. Those who have passed TET since 2011 will get this facility. All States and Union Territories have been directed to implement this system. Those whose TET certificate is more than seven years old will have to give a new TET certificate.
Mr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Ji added that it would be a positive step to increase employment opportunities for candidates interested in pursuing a career in education.
This instruction of the Center is generally welcomed by the candidates who have passed the TET.
The Primary Trend Teachers Association of different states demanded that not only the TET certificate should be extended, but also the recruitment should be ensured. Candidates who pass the TET every year need to secure jobs, claims the All India Primary Teachers Association.
The Guidelines dated February 11, 2011, of the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE), laid down that TET would be conducted by the State Governments and the validity of the TET Certificate was 7 years from the date of passing TET.
