The Uttar Pradesh state government has approved the formation of the Uttar Pradesh Education Service Selection Commission (UP ESSC) for the recruitment of teachers in higher, secondary, and basic education departments. The commission will be responsible for conducting teacher recruitment exercises in various educational institutes, promoting uniformity and transparency in the selection process. Once functional, it will replace existing recruitment commissions like UP Higher Education Service Commission and UP Secondary Education Service Selection Board. Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed the establishment of this autonomous commission to streamline teacher recruitment processes in the state's educational institutions. The move is expected to enhance the quality of education in Uttar Pradesh.
