After months of protest, unemployed aspiring teachers in Telangana can now rejoice since the government is ready to fill more than 8,900 vacant teachers positions in government run schools. The Telangana School Education Department issued a government order for direct recruitment on Tuesday.

According to Government Decree No. 25, the rules apply to all categories of teaching posts in public schools, Zilla Praja Parishad schools and Mandal Praja Parishad schools.

The move comes after a three-year delay that led to protests among the unemployed young people waiting for the recruitment process.
