UPTET exam 2021 is scheduled to be held on January 23. He earlier issued Covid-19 guidelines for the UPTET 2021.

UP CM Yogi Adityanath said, “All necessary arrangements should be made for the smooth conduct of the Teacher Eligibility Test (TET) on January 23. If any Covid-positive candidate is willing to take the exam, then a separate room should be arranged for him/her.”

The chief minister urged officials to pay special attention to discrepancies and malpractices. “Any type of incident like paper leak will not be tolerated. On any such incident, the district magistrate, basic education officer, in-charge of the examination center will be held responsible,” Yogi Adityanath on Twitter.

On January 17, he issued Covid-19 guidelines for UPTET 2021 and said, “While allocating the examination centre, definitely refer to the past record of the institute. Never make institutions with tainted/ suspicious image as the exam centre.”

The exam was cancelled on November 28 after reports of UPTET paper leak surfaced. Just before the exam began, the UP TET question paper went viral on several WhatsApp groups in Mathura, Ghaziabad and Bulandshahr.

The UPTET exam 2021 was later postponed to be held after a month and candidates were informed that they need not have to pay the fees again.

On Covid-19 vaccination in the state, CM Yogi Adityanath said, “More than 70 lakh 4 thousand adolescents in the age group of 15-17 have received the protection cover of Covid vaccine in the state.” He further said that UP at present was administering 25 lakh Covid-19 vaccine doses each day and asked officers concerned to increase it to 30 lakh doses per day.

UP recorded a total number of 98,238 active COVID-19 cases on January 20 in the state.
