Peerzada cancels attachments
'Govt ready to purchase rented school buildings of Auqafs in Sgr'
Srinagar, July 19: The minister for School Education, Peerzada Muhammad Syed on Tuesday announced cancellation of all attachments in the School Education department at all levels and abolishment of the posts of DRGs, ZRPs, CRPs with immediate effect.
“Any delay in the implementation of instructions would be viewed seriously, attracting disciplinary action against the defaulting officers,” Peerzada said while addressing an Education Conference of all the officers of School Education department of twin districts of Srinagar and Budgam held here. Besides the chief education officers, DIET principals, plus two principals, ZEOs, ZEPOs and headmasters of the twin districts, the Conference was also attended by the commissioner/secretary education G A Peer, the director school education, Kashmir, Sheikh Mushtaq Ahmad, the project director RMSA and all the four joint directors of Kashmir province. The director SSA was not present on the occasion.
The minister ordered immediate abolishment of the posts DRGs, ZRPs and CRPs, saying that those working on these posts should be sent to the schools to teach the students. “I have so far failed to understand the nature of functioning of the DRGs, ZRPs and CRPs,” he said.
Peerzada revealed that the government was contemplating to stop HRA to those working in Srinagar schools. “Instead it will be paid to those working in the far flung areas. For, HRA has become main attraction for teaching community to work in Srinagar only. We have teachers, masters and lecturers and other officers in rural areas preferring to work in Srinagar rather than in their own districts only to get HRA,” he said.
Regarding transfer policy, the minister clarified that no official in the department would be transferred before completing two-year term at a place, excepting those suffering from any terminal disease. “An official can also be transferred prematurely on security reasons, but on the recommendations IGP. And the recommendations are to be revalidated after every six months,” he said.
The minister said government had succeeded to a large extent in promoting literacy rate, implementing central schemes like SSA and RMSA in letter and spirit in the State.
Peerzada said massive infrastructure had been raised across the state under these flagship programmes. He said J&K was “marching fast towards the goal of 100 per cent literacy.”
Stressing on the strict implementation of SRO-123, the Minister said no private institution would be allowed to come up in locality where government school existed.
The minister asked the teachers to work with dedication and impart quality education to the students. He directed the concerned authorities to maintain inspection registers and submit reports thereof to the administrative department.
The Minister directed the executive agencies to complete the construction work of all school buildings within a time frame and use funds judiciously. He asked them to submit timber requisition to the forest authorities for getting timber.
To speed up construction process of school buildings, he said the department had proposed posting of two Chief Engineers and Superintendent Engineers so that execution of works would be completed in time.
Peerzada said the government could not construct its own school buildings in Srinagar City due to the non-availability of the land. However, he said the government was ready to purchase the rented school buildings along with land owned by the local Auqafs if they wished to sell these.
The Minister directed the chief education officers to complete selection process of Rehbar-e-Taleem Teachers within 45 days. He also instructed them to make these selections in a transparent manner.
The minister said the formal orders on the confirmation of in-charge ZEOs would be issued within two or three days. “The confirmation all the in-charge headmasters will be cleared very soon. However, the confirmation of in-charge lecturers will take some time,” he said.
The minister said the higher secondary schools would be soon renamed as intermediate colleges and high schools as secondary institutes. “The next education conference of the officers of the twin districts will be held after months,” he said.(GKNN)
