The High Court has taken a strict decision regarding the transfer of teachers in the state. Today, during the hearing of a case related to teacher transfer, High Court judge Biswajit Basu ordered that guidelines regarding ‘administrative transfer’ will be followed in the case of teacher transfer. By which the education department can transfer any teacher to any place as per need.
Currently, teachers of the state can apply for transfer through a portal called ‘Utsashree’. However, in most cases, it can be observed that the teachers want transfer to Kolkata and suburbs. As a result, there is a dire shortage of teachers in rural schools. Which has an impact on the students as well. Justice Bose gave an important order to remedy this situation.
