Kolkata (July 08,2023) : The Supreme Court of India has reinstated the jobs of 32,000 teachers in West Bengal who were terminated by the Calcutta High Court in 2021. The apex court has directed the state government to reconsider the termination of the teachers' jobs and take a decision within three months. The case pertains to the termination of the jobs of teachers who were appointed by the West Bengal government on contract basis in 2016. The Calcutta High Court had ruled that the teachers' jobs were illegal and that they should be terminated. However, the Supreme Court has now set aside that order, saying that the teachers' jobs were not illegal.

The Supreme Court has also directed the state government to pay the teachers their salaries for the period they have been working. The state government has said that it will comply with the Supreme Court's order. The decision of the Supreme Court has come as a relief to the 32,000 teachers who had been facing uncertainty about their future. The teachers have welcomed the decision of the apex court and have said that they will continue to work hard to provide quality education to the students.
