The Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) sources said there were around 25,000 vacant posts at the primary level. The Ministry will appoint 17,000 panel and pool teachers, who qualified as assistant teachers of the government primary schools in 2012.

Male candidates needed second division or an equivalent Grade Point Average (GPA) in an Honours or an equivalent Bachelor's degree from any recognised university as the minimum educational qualification. Female candidates needed a second division or an equivalent GPA in the Higher Secondary Certificate examination or in an Honours or an equivalent Bachelor degree.
The age limit for general candidates was 18 to 30, while it was 32 years for the children of freedom fighters and disabled persons.
