The principals of government schools across Chandigarh are demanding the transfer of the teachers under the Teacher Transfer Policy. The demand has been raised due to the interference of the teachers, who have been stayed for a long while, in the authorities of school department.

The demands have been put in front of the District Education Officer (DEO) and it has further conveyed it to the higher officials of the UT (Union Territory) Education Department. Officials have started deliberating on the revival of teacher transfer policy, which was introduced back in 2012 in Chandigarh.

Teachers Transfer Policy

According to this policy-

  • The principals/headmasters/headmistress shall be transferred after completion of 5 years.
  • Lecturers/masters/mistress/computer and vocational teachers/JBT teachers may be transferred after 10 years.
  • Teachers on administrative grounds, authenticity of the request on personal grounds having sufficient reasons, on case to case basis may be considered and where the results of the teachers are extremely poor, the period of stay shall not be applicable.

The above are some of the main agendas set for the Teachers Transfer Policy.

A recommendation in the regard of this matter has been sent for approval to higher officials of UT education department and final approval for implementation will be sought from the UT administrator.

An official from the education department told the Times of India, “When we joined in 80s and 90s, there used to be regular transfers of teachers from one school to another every 10 years and every 5 years in case of principals and school heads. However, it somehow became nonfunctional after 2007. DEO office started receiving representations  from principals requesting for transfer of teachers, who had over stayed for very long time.”

The policy will be applicable on all teaching cadre posts, including nursery trained teachers, computer and vocational teachers, masters mistresses lecturers, principals and headmasters. While teachers welcomed the move, they questioned the need of holding deliberations over a new policy as it had already been made in 2012.
