Twelve teaching and thirty eight non-teaching staff members who were deployed in various sections of Administrative department in civil secretariat in Jammu and Kashmir have been relieved by School Education Deaprtment (SED).

This step has been taken since the teachers have been continuing for a longer period of time in offices from the zonal level to the Administrative Department in violation of the norms.

Principal Secretary SED Bishwajit Kumar Singh on Tuesday issued an order and order read that officials (teaching and non-teaching) are deemed to be relieved with immediate effect and will report to their place of posting.

Further order read that no attendance certificate will be issued by this office for the relieved staff. Further, it has been advised to the concerned Drawing and Disbursing Officers (DDO) to draw the salary of these employees only after their joining at their respective places.

One of the teacher said that still there are some influential teachers (principals) continue to remain deputed in the secretariat and have been assigned new assignments.

Moreover, several complaints have been coming against some Zonal Education Officers and Chief Education Officers for not relieving some teachers and assigning them non-teaching assignments.

Zonal Education Officer told Greater Kashmir that he has kept three teachers in his office on verbal orders because he did not have adequate non-teaching staff in the office but after the order all the teachers were relieved but called three teachers back in the office on verbal orders to take up the office assignments.

The employees have been relieved from different sections of the Administrative Department at a time when the government is mulling complete rationalisation of staff to balance the lopsided Pupil-Teacher Ratio (PTR) in schools.
