Among host of reasons, appointments based on DSCs, held between 1996 and 2012, had been embroiled in legal tangles and corruption charges. The last DSC was held in 2012 in united AP.
According to senior officials in the education department, chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao had directed them to arrive at the number of such cases and asked them to workout modalities to offer them postings on case by case basis.
Preliminary estimates worked out by officials point out that over 3,000 such candidates have been eagerly waiting for postings. “The chief minister has specifically instructed us to dispose off the cases pertaining to pending DSC appointments. He is of the view unless such candidates are accommodated arriving at the current requirement of teachers in schools is difficult,” a senior official of the school education department told Express.
Meanwhile, District Education Officers(DEOs) have been instructed to keep a tab on number of vacancies of teachers being created in respective districts. Based on these estimates, over 13,000 posts are lying vacant and remains to be filled by a fresh notification.
Website on Schools in State

The website becomes operational before academic year sets in,” an official said. He added that the government had so far identified 700 schools across the state.
