Now the government is doing the recruitment through Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC). He said that withdrawing the right to reinstate teachers from Panchayats, Panchayat Samiti, Zilla Parishads and Municipalities is a violation of the principles of local autonomy. According to the new provisions, BPSC has been given the responsibility of recommending appointment on the basis of examination for the reinstatement of 2.5 lakh teachers. Whereas earlier the candidates who passed the TET exam were reinstated as teachers.

Against the principle of equality, the qualifications and functions of the teachers appointed under the 2006 rules are at par with the new rules. According to the new rule, the teachers who will be reinstated will be given salary. It is opposed to the principle of equality.
