Yamunanagar, February 13

A district-level committee has started the process of verifying experience certificates of Post Graduate Teachers (PGTs), who were exempted from clearing the Haryana Teachers Eligibility Test (HTET) as they had four-year teaching experience.

The decision to verify the certificates was taken as the School Education Department suspected that documents of some of the PGTs were fabricated, sources said.

The committee was formed after the Additional Chief Secretary (School Education) wrote to all Deputy Commissioners and other officers of the state on October 18, 2017.

The committee chairman-cum Jagadhri SDM, Bharat Bhushan Kaushik, today held a meeting with the committee members, including District Education Officer Anand Chaudhary, and directed them to fix the schedule of verification of certificates.

Sources said the committee would verify the teaching experience of selected candidates on the basis of attendance register, A-roll register (which mentions payment of salary through bank and EPF deduction), number of students appeared in board examinations and other relevant documents.

“Several school managements had issued multiple number of experience certificates in one subject knowing well that there were very less number of students in these subjects,” said a source.

The Haryana School Teacher Selection Board, Panchkula, had issued an advertisement in 2012 to fill several thousand posts of PGT in several streams. It had issued appointment letters to selected candidates in 2013 and 2014.

The board had appointed PGTs, who had passed the HTET. It also appointed those candidates, who had not passed HTET but had four-year teaching experience.

Some papers ‘fake’
