The Assam Government is likely to recruit around 90000 teachers in next  three years within the state.The Hon’ble Guwahati High Court has also granted its permission for recruitment of 12000 teachers. 
The supreme court of India has set aside the Assam High Court decision on recruitment of 82000 tecchers within the state of Assam. The Assam High Court imposed the ban on 05/03/2010 on recruitment of Lower Primary and Upper Primary teachers stating that any further recruitment of LP and UP teachers should be made only with its permission. The state government has argued that non appointment of teachers may lead to closure of large number of schools and it will also be very difficult for the government to implement the Right to Compulsory and Free Education Act.
