PERMISSION TO RELEASE ON MERIT E-TRANSFER Order,S OF TEACHERS ON THEIR PROMOTION, SED Punjab
It is submitted that in the Province Punjab. the School Education Department has developed ‘online o-Transfer System”, under which all promoted teachers are offered postings on merit. Similarly, the orders for teachers awaiting posting as well as hardship cases are also processed through e-Transfer system purely on merit.
On 14.12.2022, the schedule of “e-Transfer applications” was issued (Annexure-A) vide which promoted teachers, teachers awaiting posting and teachers under the category of hardship were offered an opportunity to apply online on School Information System (SIS) w.e.f. 23.12.2022 30 02.01.2023. As per notified e.Transfer policy, 2022 (Annexure-B), further procedures and steps i.e. preparation of merit lists. verification of documents completed by 10.01.2023. The time for decision of appeals / objections by Review Committees is ending on 24.01.2023 and thereafter, posting / transfer orders of such categories of teachers are to be issued on merit on 26.01.2023.
After decisions of review committees are updated on 24.01.2023 in SIS. posting orders of 3599 promoted teachers to actualize their promotions, 2393 teachers awaiting posting, on hardship basis (widows, divorce, medical ground, wedlock), are to be issued on 26.01.2023 purely on merit basis. Pertinent that if the posting / transfer orders are withheld at such belated stage, a lot of hue and cry may be expected from the aggrieved, on legitimate grounds. Furtherrnore, the same teachers after getting their posting orders issued from SIS, are expected to perform their duties in forthcoming Elections.
In the light of foregoing submissions, it is requested that Govt. of Punjab School Education Department may very kindly be allowed to issue e-Transfer orders on 26.01.2023.
