Mrs. Usha Rajput vs Principal, C.L. Bhalla Daya Nand … on 25 January, 2017


To be referred to the Reporter or not?


1. By this writ petition filed under Article 226 of the

Constitution of India, the petitioner impugns the letter dated 9.5.2006

issued by respondent nos.1 and 2/C.L. Bhalla Daya Nand Model

School whereby the petitioner was directed to obtain Nursery Teachers

Training (NTT) certificate/B.Ed. from a recognized institute within

two years from the date of issuance of letter dated 9.5.2006.

2. The petitioner as per the writ petition pleads that she was

appointed in the year 1984 as a nursery teacher when the petitioner had

W.P.(C) No.3560/2007 Page 1 of 6
shown all her relevant documents and hence was granted appointment

as a nursery teacher. Petitioner pleads that on account of malafides the

respondent nos.1 and 2/school issued its impugned letter dated

9.5.2006, and which cannot be done, because the same is after the

petitioner has served for almost 20 years with the school and the

petitioner‟s certificates were checked when petitioner was initially

granted appointment. Petitioner also pleads that National Council for

Teacher Education Act, 1993 (hereinafter referred to as „the NCTE

Act‟) cannot be applied retrospectively for persons who have been

appointed before the NCTE Act came into force and thus petitioner is

not required to have the Nursery Teachers Training (NTT) certificate

qualification from a recognized institute.
