Transfers: DEO warns teachers on giving false information
District Education officer Somi Reddy has warned the teachers of serious action if they resorted to submit false information in order to secure transfer from one place to another.
Mahbubnagar: district Education officer Somi Reddy has warned the teachers of serious action if they resorted to submit false information in order to secure transfer from one place to another.
Online submission process for seeking transfers has already completed and the District Education Department has also released the provisional list of the teachers with points-based on their seniority, performance and working place and is ready online counselling process.
However, there are growing allegations that the teachers had resorted to unethical methods and giving wrong information to increase the points of their seniority while filling up the online applications.
“We have got information that some teachers violated the norms and gave wrong inputs relating to their spouses and other categories. For this we are digging out the previous lists of teachers who opted for transfers and checking if they are using wrong methods for getting undue benefits,” said Somi Reddy.
Particularly the District Education officials are checking the utilisation of spouse benefits in the teachers counselling and they are verifying the cases where both the spouses who are working in government sector are utilising spouse points twice. In fact, the teachers have to use the spouse benefit for only one time, however violating this rule many teachers are using spouse option more than once against the rules.
In view of this, the Education officials are digging out past counselling reports of 2012 and 2015 years. Similarly, the officials are yet to come to a decision with regard to 4th category schools, which are located in remote and inaccessible areas. For such schools, the teachers working there will get additional points which will help increase their priority in transfers.
As the District Education officials have already released the provisional list of eligible teachers for transfers this year, some teachers have lodged complaints of wrong details given and in some cases even raised objections with regard to allocation of points against their services and category.
However, the DEO said that all these issues would be sorted out soon and very soon the teachers would be given the opportunity to select their options for transfers online soon.
