The deadline for online registration and fee submission is July 3 and July 6, respectively. Completed forms will be accepted until July 9, said UPSESSB Secretary Naval Kishore. He also advised candidates to apply only after studying the guidelines available on the council’s official website –

Applications will be accepted only in online mode. For the new recruitment, UPSESSB had been researching teacher vacancies information online from December 3 to 20, 2021. About 4500 TGT vacancies and 850 PGT vacancies were reported by respective district inspectors of schools ( DIoS).
