Education is vital for development of a nation. Primary education plays a vital role in development of the basics from the early childhood and this is the reason, why there is a lot of emphasis in India on Universalization of Primary Education.

In line with this many states are conducting Teacher Eligibility Test for determining the standards of aspirants, who intend to join as teachers in 3 levels, viz; Primary, Upper Primary and High School levels. The TET offers eligibility to a candidate to join as teachers and the candidates who have cleared TET can apply for posts of Teachers in various Government and Private schools as per the requirements.
