Deadline Extended for Re-admitted Students to Pay AP Intermediate Exam Fees:

The Board of Intermediate Education has extended the deadline for exam fee payment for first and second-year Intermediate candidates who had previously failed or discontinued their studies. With the new deadline set for November 30, these candidates now have the opportunity to appear for the Intermediate Public Examinations scheduled for March 2024.

According to a statement from BIE secretary Saurabh Gaur, the state government has permitted the re-admission of students who did not pass their Class X and Inter examinations. This initiative aims to achieve a 100 percent gross enrollment ratio and comes with specific guidelines for the re-admission process.

According to these guidelines, re-admitted candidates are required to take all subjects in the Intermediate Public Examinations. If a student takes these exams multiple times, only the higher of the two sets of marks obtained will be taken into consideration.

The certificates awarded to these students will not categorize them as fail, compartmental, private, or with star marks. Instead, all candidates, regardless of whether they passed on their initial attempt or upon re-admission, will receive a uniform pass certificate with no distinctions.

Telangana Teachers Stage Protest Demanding Expedited Spousal Transfers

Telangana Teachers Stage Protest Demanding Expedited Spousal Transfers:

Teachers and staff protested in front of Pragathi Bhavan on Sunday, demanding the immediate implementation of promised “spouse transfers.” Several women, hailing from various districts, were detained until 9.30 pm during the demonstration.

“We put our kids at the house and don’t have access to return home within time. My son is unwell. We came here to advocate for a cause, and our treatment feels inhumane. There are no restroom facilities or access to water here. Is this the way they treat women here?” questioned one protester.

Another participant vowed not to back down until Education Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy addressed their grievances, referring to their current situation as “torture.”

According to the demonstrators, the government’s actions have separated over 80,000 couples by assigning them to different districts, leaving them unable to care for their children, parents, or families. Most of the political Leaders were given assurance of spouse transfers, but they failed to provide those promises.

There has been a deliberate lack of action in lifting the High Court’s imposed stay order,” noted Harinakshi P, a teacher. “It’s disheartening that these teachers and employees have been making requests to the government for the past two years, only to be disregarded,” added Chava Ravi, General Secretary of the Telangana State United Teachers Federation (TSUTF).”

Even though there are 22,000 vacant teaching positions, only 5,089 have been officially announced for the District Selection Committee (DSC). Why can’t the teachers be transferred to fill the remaining vacancies?”
