List of 46,000 teachers awaiting transfer ready

The Primary and Secondary Education department has prepared a list of 46,000 teachers, who after counselling, were unable to receive postings of their choice despite citing urgent family or health concerns. 

Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Kimmane Ratnakar on Thursday said the department was looking into every individual case, some of whom were working far away from home and had not been able to get postings of their choice for 10 years and above.

He said an enactment or an ordinance to exempt transfer cases from the purview of the Karnataka State Civil Services (Regulation of Transfer of Teachers) Rules, 2007, would be sought. The decision comes in the backdrop of the High Court asking the government to prepare a teacher-friendly transfer policy.

“We are also looking at the situation pertaining to 17,000 couples, both teachers, who have sought transfers to common locations,” said Ratnakar. 

Notice to ‘gurukul’ 

Ratnakar said he has directed the officials to issue a notice to Nityananada Gurukul in Bidadi, for illegally running a school on its premises. Officers have been directed to prepare a detailed report in this regard, he added. “Once a school is started in the State, the authorities concerned should take our (department) permission. However, till date no one from the ashram had come forth to seek clearance,” Ratnakar said. 

Last week, directions were issued to the Ramanagara deputy commissioner, the district superintendent of police and the DDPI to initiate action against the ashram. The department was also concerned about the future of the students, majority of whom are foreigners, he said.
