Harsh seeks CM's intervention into transfer scams in Education

Early Times Report

Jammu, Aug 23: Drawing the attention of the Chief Minister and Education Minister towards the grave irregularities, omissions and commissions in the transfers of Teachers and Masters in the recent past, Harsh Dev Singh JKNPP Chairman and Former Minister today said that the Education Deptt had virtually been hijacked by corrupt and unscrupulous officers particularly in Jammu Division.
Never before had such blatant violations of norms and procedures been noticed in the transfers, claimed Harsh, adding further that all plum postings were put to open auction by the "daring" officers enjoying political patronage, with none to take cognizance of their highly opprobrious and scandalous conduct. He called for the personal indulgence of the Education Minister so as to ascertain the allegations of mass corruption in such transfers particularly those made in District Udhampur in utter violation of all transfer norms and in complete circumvention of the transfer policy announced by the govt with a great fan fare.
Calling for fair and impartial probe, Harsh alleged that the transfer lists of Masters revealed large scale 'zero' km transfers and pre-mature transfers in blatant violation of transfer norms which were reported to have been made on monetary considerations. Expressing concern over the nasty transfers, he said that there were instances where the masters serving in the two schools sharing a common boundary were transferred from one premise to the other on extraneous considerations.
Likewise, there were several glaring examples of pick and choose with several transferred pre-maturely while hundreds allowed to continue despite having stay ranging from 5 to 10 years in their respective institutions. In a bizarre case, he said the CEO Udhampur transferred his son pre-maturely in utter abuse of his position and authority. He pointed out that the CEOs son, Mr. Pankaj Bhardwaj, who was posted in HS Roun-Domail in the vicinity of Udhampur city was transferred barely after a few months of stay to Girls HSS Udhampur in the city without fulfilling the mandatory requirement of administrative approval. His transfer to a Girls School had further antagonized the teaching community of the District in view of questionable credentials of the teacher who had faced the wrath of public and students of a Girls School named Girls HS Garhi for having misbehaved and used obscene language with females and having written licentious and lewd letters to the female teachers of the school, rued Harsh. Contrarily a female teacher on the verge of retirement was transferred from MS Badhole to HS Rang at a distance of around 30 kms including more than 10 kms on foot.
