The court was informed that on September 25, 2012, the Deputy Secretary of the Education Department issued a report and submitted a report to the government regarding the vacant posts of District Intelligent Teachers. This report was prepared on the basis of reports received from the district education officers of the state. The report details the vacancies of business teachers in more than a thousand high schools. The court was told that trade was not being taught in the school due to lack of trade teachers. The STET exam did not include any advertisements on trade.
At the same time, the state government informed the court that the STET examination was underway. Candidates who pass this examination will be appointed to the approved posts as per their qualifications. Not published for commercial advertising. Thus, it is not possible to recruit candidates for trade from this test.
