Chandigarh, August 4 (Trinew)
The transfers of teachers which have been pending for a long time in Haryana will now happen soon. The state government has approved the new transfer policy of teachers. In the cabinet meeting held on Friday under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal, the teacher transfer policy issued on June 5, 2017 was canceled and the draft of the new teacher transfer policy was approved. In the new policy, the concept of zones and marks has been abolished on the basis of State Teacher Award and National Teacher Award. In online transfer, now regular teachers and guest teachers will have to choose a minimum of 10 academic blocks to go to the school of their choice. Maximum five marks will be given to all those male and female teachers whose husband/wife is posted in any department, board-corporation, public sector undertaking, university or any central university located in Haryana. Employees working on regular basis or posted as guest teachers in Central Government offices located in Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh will also get the benefit. In the new policy, the concept of zones and marks has been abolished on the basis of State Teacher Award and National Teacher Award. A teacher will be able to stay in a school for a maximum of five years. Additional provision has been made for widows in a graded manner. C&V teachers will be given priority in their district over TGT cadre teachers to ensure their posting within the district. All eligible elementary school head teachers will compulsorily fill the option for the post of TGT along with ESHM.
Principal and head teachers will get benefit of good results
Now only the Principal and Head Master will get the benefit of good board exam result. Teachers of subjects with less than 80 student strength on completion of five years tenure will not compulsorily be included in the drive, unless their post is declared surplus due to rationalization of posts.
