Govt to introduce transparent transfer policy for teachers
Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla has met his first challenge in dealing with the file of the ‘Online Teacher Transfer Policy’, which was moved to his desk by the Secretary, School Education, last week.
The policy was planned to be implemented from the current academic session. Promising transparency in the education sector, it had been put on the back-burner due to the Lok Sabha polls and lack of political will.
The policy, affecting more than one lakh teachers, will do away with the existing personal interference of ministers and officials in making transfers of their choice. The implementation, however, will not be easy.
