The Rajasthan Secondary Education Act, 1957
Act No. 42 of 1957
LEGISLATIVE HISTORY 6
As amended subsequently by the following Rajasthan Acts:-
Preliminary1. Short title, extent and commencement. - (1) This Act may be called the Rajasthan Secondary Education Act, 1957. (2) It extends to the whole of the State of Rajasthan. (3) It shall come into force at once.
Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons - (Act No. 24 of 2015) - As per the guidelines issued by National Council for Teacher Education, it is necessary for a candidate to qualify the Teacher Eligibility Test before he can be considered for recruitment as a teacher in primary and upper primary schools. The guidelines provide that the State Government shall authorise any appropriate authority to conduct the Teacher Eligibility Test. Accordingly, it was decided to authorise the Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education to conduct the aforesaid Test. The Rajasthan Board of Secondary Education is a statutory body established under the Rajasthan Secondary Education Act, 1957 and it can carry out only the functions specified in section 9 of the said Act. Conducting examination for Teachers Eligibility Test had not been specified as the function of the Board under the said section. Therefore, it was considered necessary to amend aforesaid section 9 by inserting a new clause (2A) enabling the Board to conduct the Teacher Eligibility Test. Since, the Rajasthan Legislative Assembly was not in session and circumstances existed which rendered it necessary for the Governor of Rajasthan to take immediate action, he, therefore, promulgated the Rajasthan Secondary Education (Amendment) Ordinance, 2015 (Ordinance No. 5 of 2015) on 29th June, 2015, which was published in Rajasthan Gazette, Part IV(B), Extraordinary, dated 30th June, 2015.
