Can Hindi Speaking TGTs teach non Hindi Media students?

Interviews are being conducted for the post of TGT Hindi, English, Maths, Social Science and Science. A cursory look at the list of shortlisted candidates is enough to tell us that the number of shortlisted from non Hindi speaking areas seems to be far less. Samiti has previous instances of posting South India TGTs in Hindi Areas and vice verse.  But those cases were rare and exceptional.For Hindi and English its reasonable. Maths, Science and Social Science are tought in Local Languages up to class VII. That is the USP of Navodaya System as it accommodates the rural children form local media to gradually adopt to English medium. Else the  drop outs would sky rocket!!

As the qualification prescribed was Central Teacher Eligibility Test, one can easily assume, candidates from Hindi Speaking areas will only be applying. Candidates who have qualified in State Level Teacher Eligibility Test should have also been allowed to apply so that they could have been shortlisted to the interview in a proper ratio to the extent of availability of vacancies in a specific state/medium.
