KARIMNAGAR: The PRTU-Telangana state unit has urged the state government to consider the local candidature of study as the foremost criteria for the allotment of teachers to the districts, zones and multi-zones.
Following the issuance of presidential order 2018 for allotment of employees to local cadres, the PRTU delegation led by its president M Angi Reddy, general secretary M Chennaiah, state official spokesperson Parvathi Satyanarayana met Minister for Education P Sabitha Indra Reddy in Hyderabad and submitted a memorandum on Monday.
They urged the government to shift the non-local teachers to their respective native districts in the existing vacancies while continuing the teachers working in the present places of working (retention). They said that the government should give options to the employees for moving to their respective native districts by determining their local candidature based on their school study.
“Teachers who have been appointed first as SGTs and later recruited as SAs have served the department and hence their service should (Feeder Category Seniority) are reckoned from their first appointment as SGT in determining their seniority. When employees are allocated the date of the first appointment shall be taken into consideration irrespective of their cadre”, the memorandum stated.
Demanding the government to first declare all vacancies in all cadres in new districts to take up the process of collecting options on the basis of seniority so that the teachers can evaluate their chances of getting suitable postings, the PRTU leaders urged the government to clarify doubts pertaining to the authenticity of the medical certificates submitted by teachers suffering from certain ailments. They said that the medical certificates should be attested by the medical board to check false claims and ensure justice to the genuine deserving teachers.
They said that all the widows should be given equal opportunity of preference on submission of satisfactory certification. The district and state teacher unions’ leaders of recognised associations should be added in the preferential category.
