Termination of more teachers on cards as Govt seeks list of un-authorized absentees
DSEK asks DDOs, CEOs to project absent employee cases; non-compliance of order can warrant action against erring official
Srinagar, Jan 28: The government is mulling to ‘terminate more teachers’ of School Education Department (SED) by initiating the disciplinary proceedings against the teachers who remain un-authorizedly absent from their legitimate duties.
Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) Tassaduq Hussain Mir in a circular issued on Monday said, “It has come to the notice of the Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) that subordinate and District head offices are not forwarding or projecting the cases of employees who are remaining un-authorizedly absent from their legitimate duties to avoid disciplinary proceedings against these officials.”
“All the Drawing and Disbursing Officers (DDOs), district head officers are enjoined upon to project the cases of such employees in light of standing instructions and guidance conveyed by DSEK from time to time so that disciplinary proceedings are initiated against these officials in terms of relevant rules available on the subject,” the director said.
Mir said, “The information on the prescribed format, along-with all requisite documents shall be submitted on monthly basis and in-case no such case is reported during the month, ‘Nil’ information be submitted.”
“Non-compliance shall be viewed seriously and the concerned Drawing and Disbursing Officer and Chief Education Officer shall be held responsible and proceedings as warranted under J&K CCA Rules 1956 shall be initiated against the erring officers,” reads the circular.
The government in the past three months has terminated 30 teachers of the School Education Department (SED) from the services for remaining unauthorizedly absent. (Rising Kashmir)
