School Education Department to Withhold Salaries of Teaching Staff Evading ATD-2023
Srinagar, May 09 – The School Education Department has decided to withhold the salaries of teaching staff who are evading Annual Transfer Drive 2023 (ATD-2023) despite having more than three years stay period. This comes after the department announced that it will act tough against the teaching staff that were evading the ATD-2023.
The Deputy Secretary to government has intimated this decision in a communique to the Director JK-SCERT, Director School Education of both Jammu and Kashmir regions, and Project Director Samagra Shiksha.
According to the official communique, the Deputy Secretary has sought details of employees who have not applied for the online transfer-2023 despite having mature stay. The communique has also sought details of surplus or attached employees who have not applied for online transfer-2023.
“Besides, it is also requested not to draw the salary of such eligible employees who fail to apply in online transfer-2023,” the government said.
The School Education Department has made it clear that eligible employees not applying for transfer despite having a mature stay shall be transferred by the Department anywhere as per the requirement of the Department.
Director of School Education Jammu (DSEJ) has said that the teachers who have a stay of three or more years will have to apply for the transfers.
“Some of the teachers who have a stay of three or more years have a concept that they will go unnoticed if they didn’t apply for their transfer but I want to inform those teachers that if they didn’t apply for it, they will definitely get transferred to Zone-IV and V,” DSEJ said.
The School Education Department has defined five zones for teachers’ postings. The preferences for posting are based on the current zone of work, with Zone-I falling within the municipal limit of the district headquarters, and Zone-V being a school that is located at a walking distance of 7 km or more from the nearest motorable road.
The School Education Department has made it clear that it will not tolerate any evasion of ATD-2023 by teaching staff. The Department has also urged eligible employees to apply for transfers as per the requirement of the Department, failing which they will be transferred to Zone-IV and V, and their salaries will be withheld.Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Instagram.
