Allahabad, Oct 15 (UNI) The Allahabad High Court today held that the post of Shiksha Mitra is contractual for a period of one year, thus no person has a right to continue on the said post as a matter of right as appointment were to be made on year to year basis.

Passing the judgment, Justice Rakesh Tiwari was of the view that since scheme provides year to year appointment hence there can be no automatic renewal.

Every candidate including the one who has taught in the last session if eligible is liable to compete in the selection process and cannot continue with the following selection process as it would be against the spirit of the scheme.

The order was passed on a writ petition of one Sanjay Kumar Jaiswal. The petitioner has moved to the Court with a plead that in spite of renewal of his appointment for the session 2008-09, the principal of the college was not permitting him to join.

The Court disposed of the petition with above observation and directives to the district magistrate, Jaunpur, to decide the representation of the petitioner in the light of observation made in the judgment.
