Delhi: Education Minister Atishi ordered the cancellation of transfer of five thousand teachers

New Delhi. Delhi Education Minister Atishi said on Thursday that she has directed Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar to immediately withdraw the transfer order of 5,000 teachers, which was issued without her approval. In the Directorate of Education’s circular titled Online Request for Transfer of Teaching Staff, all teachers who have served for more than 10 years in a school were compulsorily directed to apply for transfer.

In an order dated June 11, the Directorate of Education had said, “All teachers who have completed 10 continuous years in the same school will have to compulsorily apply online for transfer on the basis of mutual consent or selecting the maximum number of schools in general. Those teachers who do not apply online, the headquarters itself will transfer them to any school as per official requirement.”

The education minister had ordered on July 1 that no teacher should be transferred just because they have spent more than 10 years in a particular school. Addressing a press conference, Atishi said she has come to know that there has been corruption in this case.

He said, “Contrary to my orders, a transfer order was issued on July 2 in which about five thousand teachers were transferred. I have instructed the Chief Secretary to withdraw this order. I have also told him to investigate if there has been any corruption or irregularity.
