The process for seeking the details by the school education department of employees of the department who have crossed the age of 48 years or have served for 22 years have been initiated.

This major step comes after the government has asked for identifying non-performing or “deadwood” employees of the department for their consideration under Article 226 (2) of J&K CSRs.

Now, the school education department has prepared a format to know the details of the employees who have poor track records or are involved in some corruption or embezzlement cases during their services. Not only this, but details of school teachers who have produced lesser results or results which are not upto mark in past years, as per Greater Kashmir.

The government earlier said that despite having a huge number of employees in the department, the majority of them were not performing their duties to the level of expectations.

The Principal Secretary in a letter to Director Education Kashmir and Jammu divisions said that it is important to find out non-working staff in both teaching and non-teaching faculty.

The government recently has decided to prepare a list of the non-performing staff in the School Education Department over increase in dropout rate of students in the government schools.

It is pertinent to mention that government has decided to rationalise around 2000 schools for having an inadequate enrollment of the students. As well as schools having inadequate or low or zero enrollment will be vacated.
