Jammu, Mar 20: Following the footsteps of its predecessors, the School Education department during incumbent dispensation has also been found pursing same discriminatory policies, according to which influential Principals have been enjoying premature transfers within few kilometers whereas those having no political lineages, have been suffering.
According to some transfer orders issued by School Education department in recent past of district Rajouri, some Principals managed repeated transfers within city limits. Moreover, these transfers were also prematured, as issued in violation of transfer policy where as a good number Principals have been facing attachment in Chief Education Officer Rajouri for the last many months.
One such transfer order was issued in favour of Hamsheera Bi. She was posted in DIET Rajouri in year 2015 and in May 2016, she was transferred to Higher Secondary School Rajouri, vice Rakesh Kumar Gupta. "The distance between DIET Rajouri and HSS Rajouri is merely few meters and transfer was also premature, which was in violation of transfer policy", sources said.
Surprisingly, in the month of September 2016, Bi was once again transferred from HSS Rajouri to Gir
s Higher Secondary School Rajouri.
