Allahabad, Sep 14 (UNI) Allahabad High Court today declared the entire exercise undertaken by the Uttar Pradesh government during the regime of Mulayam Singh Yadav government in respect of appointment of special BTC Urdu teachers in primary schools ''illegal'' and contrary to statutory rules.

The court also quashed the advertisements published in pursuance thereof.

The Judge said the admissions granted in respect of the said course were illegal and the District Institutes of Education and Training (DIET) cannot be permitted to provide any further training to the students.

Giving this judgement, Justice Arun Tandon said the state government was not granted permission to start special BTC training course Urdu till date in accordance with law and therefore no training in special BTC training course Urdu can be imparted by the DIET for preparing teachers for imparting education in other subjects through Urdu medium.

''Urdu is not one of language subject included in the syllabus of nursery school in junior basic schools and no teachers for imparting education in Urdu is required in such institutions.'' The education board had not taken any decision to impart education in the institutions established by it through the medium of Urdu and therefore there cannot be requirement of the teachers for the purpose of teaching other subjects through the medium of Urdu in any of the institutions established by the UP Basic Shiksha Parishad, Allahabad, the Court said.

The court gave this judgement on a writ petition filed by Sumbul Naqvi.

The state government had taken a decision on February 16, 2005 to conduct two years special BTC training course Urdu for appointment of assistant teachers Urdu in various institutions established by the Parishad.

Two government orders were issued for the appointment of Urdu teachers in primary schools.

The petitioner had challenged the ads on the ground that qualified teachers were available for appointment against existing vacancies and therefore the process of direct recruitment of Urdu teachers was totally uncalled for.
