The Rajkeeya Shikshak Sangh (RSS), the organisation of Lecturer Teachers (LT) of the State has demanded that before appointment of guest teachers in the schools, the education department should complete the process of the long pending on request transfers.
The organisation has submitted a letter to the director education, R K Kunwar on the issue. The general secretary of the RSS, Sohan Singh Majila said after the implementation of Transfers act, the on request transfers of teachers have not been done yet.
He said that many on request transfers like from Durgam (hard to access) to Durgam and mutual transfer of husband and wife are pending. Majila said that the department should complete these transfers before going ahead with appointing guest teachers so that teachers waiting for transfers from last 10- 12 years get some relief.
After getting decision in its favour from the Supreme Court (SC), in the guest teachers’ case, the Uttarakhand government has decided to start the process of recruitment of guest teachers on the vacant posts of lecturers and LTs. The guest teachers would be appointed on 4800 posts soon and they would get a remuneration of Rs 15000 per month.
