BENGALURU: Thursday (November 10) is the deadline for redeployed teachers to report to the schools where they have been posted. Those not reporting will face disciplinary action.
Earlier, the Department of Public Instruction had issued notices to redeployed teachers who have not reported for duty yet, warning them of disciplinary action. The Director, Primary Education, K Anand issued notices through Deputy Directors of Public Instruction (DDPIs).
As per information available from the department, over 2,392 teachers have not reported to the place of posting. In June-July this year, the department had taken a decision to identify excess teachers and redeploy them to schools where there is a shortage of teachers. It identified 12,393 excess teachers across the state and issued transfer orders to them.
It has been three months, but those who have received the redeployment orders have not yet reported at the new schools.
Speaking to Express, a senior official of the department said, “Even after three months of the current academic year, many redeployed teachers have not reported to duty, but are drawing salaries. We have considered it as a serious offence and issued a final warning with November 10 as the deadline. If they don’t report even after this warning, it will be considered as dereliction of duty and we will initiate disciplinary action against such teachers.”
