HC Directs State to conduct LPCET in Six Weeks
The Hyderabad High Court asked the Directorate of School Education of Telangana government, on Wednesday, to hold the Telangana Language Pandit Common Entrance Test (LPCET). They gave a time a period of 6 weeks.
What is LPCET ?
This stands for Language Pandit Common Entrance Test and is abbreviated LPCET. This exam is held by the Department of School Education. The purpose of this exam is for the candidate’s admission into a year’s Language Pandit Training (abbreviated as LPT) course. LPT course is for the languages of Hindi, Telugu and Urdu respectively. Justice M S Ramachandra Rao took the decision of the Hyderabad High Court in response to a writ plea. Vikas Telugu Pandit Training College Ranga Reddy district, Telangana filed the writ petition. This was the delay in the Telangana (LPCET) which the aspirants found unfavorable.
The Writ Plea
Vikas Telugu Pandit Training College pointed out that on the 26th of October 2015 the State government granted permission to the Directorate of School Education to hold the Telangana (LPCET) this year downsizing the number of exam centers to just two cities namely Hyderabad and Warangal. The Director of the board defended its position stating that a letter was written to the NCTE with regards to the formation of the new norms for holding the Telangana LPCET. He also said that he was awaiting NCTE’s response to his adjuration about the establishment of the new standards.
Meanwhile, the counsel advocating NCTE informed the court that the NCTE had returned to the Directorate of School Education prior to this, telling them that NCTE already has set up an expert committee who will formulate the new norms. NCTE mentioned that these new standards would be applicable to any academic year. The development of new rules cannot be the reason to hold the LPCET Exam.
