For the past four years, the Maharashtra government has been conducting the Teachers’ Eligibility Test (TET). However, this year, the teachers have decided to boycott the examinations after the state government has failed to pay the honorarium charges for two months to Mumbai teachers who had supervised the exams.

Since the last four years, the state government organises the exams for teachers in the state. The test conducted in July witnesses the involvement of thousands of applicants who urge to appear for exams throughout several places in the state. The examination is held at various centers throughout Maharashtra and many teachers are paid the honorarium for being a supervisor in those examinations.

The teachers had expected the payment of the services as soon as the examinations were over. However, the centre directors and the teachers have been deprived of their payments for more than two months and so, the Teachers’ Council has decided to boycott the examinations from next year.

Accordingly, Mumbai Division’s Maharashtra State Teachers’ Council President Anil Bornare had reached out to the officials of Maharashtra State Examination Council in Pune to discuss the issue. However, the officials stated that they had delivered the amount of honorarium for centre directors, teachers, and other workers in July itself.

Therefore, now the teachers have questioned that why hasn’t the Inspectors’ Office paid their dues for the last two months.
