SECURITY OF SERVICES OF TEACHERS IN UNAIDED PRIVATE SCHOOLS
Valmiki J. Mehta J of Delhi High Court in one of its recent judgments has referred to Article 21-A (right to education) of the Constitution of India for the benefit of teachers employed with the unaided private schools in Delhi. A common unjust practice to employ teachers on probation by unaided schools and to continue the same for years together without confirmation in service is being followed. Such teacher always remain under the threat of termination of services without remedy. The Hon'ble Judge applying Article 21-A of the Constitution has laid down the maximum period of probation as three years while interpreting Rule 105 of the Delhi School Education Rules, 1973.
