HYDERABAD: A division bench of the Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday made it clear that it would decide by June 26 on the batch petitions filed challenging the Rules pertaining to the teachers’ transfers in Telangana state.
The bench of Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice J Uma Devi was dealing with batch petitions filed with a plea to declare the Telangana Teachers’ Regulation of Transfers Rules 2018 as illegal.
Advocate Surender Rao, appearing for the Zilla Parishad teachers, submitted that the government has framed the Transfers Rules contrary to the Presidential Order.

After hearing the submissions of the counsel, the bench postpostponed the matter to Thursday to hear the arguments of the additional advocate general J Ramachandra Rao.
