For the students who have completed B.Ed. for teaching students in Class 1 to 5, and Standards 6, 7, 8 in Gujarat, Teachers’ Aptitude/Eligibility Test – TAT and TET are must. Governmnet of India enacted historical Act of Right to Education (RTE) for free and compulsory education to the children of age group 6 to 14 years as their fundamental right under the Constitution. Unfortunately, Government of Gujarat has failed to effectively implement this Act which has resulted in depriving students of poor and middle class families for their fundamental right to education.
