Candidates belonging to Economically Backward Classes (EWS) will get 10 percent reservation in admission for Diploma in Elementary Education (DElEd ) 2020-21 session, a mandatory qualification to teach in classes one to eight. The central government made a provision for this last year. The poor were benefited in other admissions and recruitment, including the Central University, but could not get an opportunity in the DElEd . 2019-20 admissions. According to examination regulatory authority office sources, the necessary provision will be made in DElEd admission while studying the notification this year and in compliance with the order of the state government in this regard.
Admission to District Education and Training Institutes (DIET) and private colleges started under the State Educational Research and Training Council (SCERT) in Uttar Pradesh from 17 July 2019. From 19 to 30 July 2019, the candidates’ choices of institutions were filled online in order of merit. National Teacher Education Council (NCTE) member secretary Sanjay Awasthi sent a letter on 8 July 2019, directing 10% reservation of EWS from 2019-20 session.
