    Teachers' transfers being made strictly as per ‘Govt policy', claims Minister

    Tawi, Jan 20: Minister for Naeem Akhtar today informed the Upper House that the transfer of teachers is made strictly as per norms set under transfer policy of the department.

    Replying to a question by Vibod Gupta, the Minister said that in zone the transfer of teachers is made during winter vacations and in Jammu the same takes place during summer vacations to avoid disruption during mid-session.

    The Education Minister said the government has initiated series of reforms to bring transparency in the working of education department. “The department has created a data-base wherein all information regarding, transfers, school buildings, roll of students and number of teachers posted in each school is available,” he said adding the data bank is bound to go a long way in bringing transparency in transfers and postings.

    The Minister said that irregularities in transfers of the teachers and other staff, if any, would be looked into.

    He said the basic purpose for the engagement of Rehbar-e-Taleem (ReTs) under SSA is to teach a particular locality having low literacy rate and the transfer of such teachers will fail the very basic purpose of the scheme and no such transfer policy is yet in place. He, however, said the government would take a view on the transfer of ReTs after their regularization in such a way that the spirit of the policy does not get affected.

    In reply to main question, the Minister said 33 Principals and equivalents, 61 Headmasters and 117 Lecturers besides 453 teachers and 24 newly promoted masters were transferred during last one year in Rajouri district. He said 24 new masters have been adjusted so far and adjustment of remaining promotees is under examination of the department.
