Hence, the exemption of Departmental tests is applicable to Secondary Grade Teachers, School Assistants etc., who were selected by direct recruitment and gets initial appointment after 50 years of age.

Therefore, the claims preferred in SPP-II Scale without acquiring prescribed qualifications for the next promotion post to the 1st level promotion post to the original post in respect of the Teachers, on the ground that they have got 2nd exemption on attaining the age of 50 years is not in accordance with the rules laid down for SPP-II scale under Automatic Advancement Scheme.
