NEW DELHI: The Gujarat Legislative Assembly, on Wednesday, passed the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill making it mandatory to clear Teachers' Aptitude Test (TAT) to become teachers and principals in minority educational institutes.

The provision has been introduced in the Bill as per the High Court and Supreme Court directives, the chief minister’s office said through their official social media account. The TAT is an aptitude test conducted by the state government for recruiting teachers.
