The High Court today has directed the Non-Government Teachers’ Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA) to recommend recruitment of certificate holders who have passed the 1st to 12th registration examinations within the next seven days. At the same time, the court ordered to postpone the 3rd public notice of NTRCA.
A virtual High Court bench comprising Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khandaker Diliruzzaman passed the order after hearing an appeal on the issue on Thursday.
The order was passed after hearing a contempt of court petition against the NTRCA chairman.
Advocate Khurshid Alam Khan, Advocate Mohammad Siddique Ullah Mia and Barrister Mohiuddin Hanif appeared for the petition. On the other hand, Advocate Mohammad Farooq Hossain was in favor of NTRCA.
Earlier on March 7, the High Court directed the NTRCA to recommend the recruitment of 1st to 12th registrants in MPO-registered private educational institutions. The NTRCA chairman was asked to implement the directive within 15 days. Besides, the court asked to implement the High Court verdict regarding the appointment of the registrants.
Contempt of court petition was again filed against the NTRCA chairman for not implementing the order.
On December 15 last year, the High Court banned the recruitment of teachers in educational institutions by the Non-Government Teachers’ Registration and Certification Authority (NTRCA).
At that time, the order said they would not be able to give any “notification” for the appointment of any teacher without resolving the issue of contempt of court.
The High Court bench of Justice Mamnoon Rahman and Justice Khizir Hayat passed the order after hearing the petitions of several hundred registered but deprived candidates.
