Teachers in limbo over uncertainty on transfers

Teachers awaiting transfers have been left in the lurch as uncertainty prevails over the process. Several of them are unaware if the counselling process would actually take place on Thursday as scheduled.

While deputy directors of public instruction have been informed through video conferencing that the transfers will take place, a note from the minister’s office suggests that the process be suspended.

The department of Primary and Secondary Education could suspend the ongoing process of teacher’s transfers tentatively as the opinion of the Law department has been sought.

In a letter to the principal secretary, department of Primary and Secondary Education Shalini Rajneesh, Minister N Mahesh’s office has sought that the transfer process be stopped till the opinion of the Law department is sought.

The letter, a copy of which is with DH, suggests that the opinion of the Law department be taken for conducting request transfers first before the others are considered.

In view of this, mandatory transfers and transfers of excess teachers have been witheld. “Issues of several teachers can be addressed if the law department permits this. Some of them have medical conditions due to which they have made requests for transfer. It will benefit such teachers,” said one of the teachers. However, the challenge seems to be for those teachers whose counselling is due on Thursday.
