This Delhi cabinet decision comes after the recruitment of around 9,000 teachers to the city's government schools has been put on hold by Lt Governor Anil Baijal, following the AAP government's insistence that the work experience of guest teachers be given weightage in the process.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia had written to Lt Governor Anil Baijal while the Delhi Assembly had passed a resolution on August 10 demanding that the recruitment process be halted till the education department formulates a policy to give weightage to guest teachers.
Indo-Asian News Service reported that, of the total 17,000 guest teachers in Delhi government schools, 15,000 will be benefited after this bill is passed.
However, according to Mr Sisodia, about 2,000 teachers who did not meet the criteria will continue to work as guest teachers.
