A large number of UP-TET aspirants have claimed that they were denied entry at Sector 30 DPS examination centre. "We have all the documents, but they want us to produce Principal's signature. How will I get it, if the concerned person is in Allahabad? They are not letting us appear," a UP TET exam aspirant told the ANI news agency.

However, Noida ADCP has rejected the aspirants' claim. Ranvijay Singh, ADCP, Noida said they have sent back only those aspirants who did not have valid documents.

"Those not having valid documents were not allowed, as per the officials here...For mark sheet attestation, they should have it signed either by the Principal or a concerned officer, but they got it from somewhere (else)...which is why they were denied entry," he said.

The Uttar Pradesh Teacher Eligibility Test is being held today across 4,365 examination centers set up in all 75 districts of the state. Around 21,65,181 candidates have reportedly registered themselves for the exam today.
