Greater Kashmir

In Kashmir Division, 688 out of 710 attached teachers have reported and joined their respective places of postings.

Governor N N Vohra reviewed to-date status of his earlier direction regarding the cancellation of all “attachments” of teachers all over the State and the re-deployment of government teaching staff in a meeting held today.

The School Education Department informed that out of 2307 attached teaching staff, 1483 have already reported and joined their original places of posting in Jammu Division.

In Kashmir Division, 688 out of 710 attached teachers have reported and joined their respective places of postings. The 56 lecturers who had reported back after completing their tenure in Ladakh and were awaiting posting orders for the past six months have also been given postings.

Raj Bhavan spokesperson disclosed that Governor has directed for issuance of posting orders of remaining 738 teachers in Jammu Division and 20 in Kashmir Division who are still awaiting adjustments, by 9 February.

The spokesperson recalled that the decision regarding “de-attachment” was taken after Governor had expressed concern over the adverse effect of such an approach on smooth functioning of schools in the far flung areas, when most of the teachers were “attached” in urban areas.
