Department of Education on Tuesday placed two employees under suspension for making ‘mass transfer’ list of teacher viral on social media.
Reports said that Government of Jammu and Kashmir Office of the Chief Education Officer, Budgam had accorded the sanction to the mass transfer of teachers. Reports added that a list of over 500 teachers posted in different schools of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district had been prepared and it was duly signed by Chief Education Officer Budgam Mrs Fatima Tak.
Insiders told news agency CNS that without the approval of Chief Education Officer Budgam, two employees from the CEO Officer put the list on WhatsApp thus making it viral.
“The viral list created panic among teachers. Majority of them used influence to either stop the transfer or change the place of posting,” said an insider not ruling out ‘give and take’ mantra.
Insiders said that during the probe the names of two employees surfaced who were immediately suspended for violating the norms.
“Yes, two employees have been suspended for making the transfer list public. One is a Senior Assistant, another is a Junior one,” Chief Education Officer Budgam Fatima Tak told CNS.
