JAMMU, June 23: Believe it or not but it is true that the State Government has thrown transfer policy to winds in the Higher Education Department. This was disclosed by Balwinder Singh a RTI activist of the State while exploding the Education Department’s myth on transfer policy at a press conference here today.
Mr Singh stated that though the Higher Education Department claims to have formulated a transfer policy but the rules have been thrown to winds by the authorities themselves.
Singh said a very shocking and unbelievable revelation is made in the RTI reply from all the Colleges of Jammu district. As per the RTI reply one Assistant Professor namely Sudha Gupta has broken all the records of maximum stay of 33 years in Govt College for Woman Gandhi Nagar Jammu while Prof. Aruna Dubey stood second with 29 years of stay in Government College for Woman Parade Jammu.
He said Associate professor Kailash Mehra stood at third position by the stay of 26 years in Govt M.A.M, College Jammu and Prof Neelam Mohan also stood at third position with 26 years stay in GCW Parade.
Singh said that it is very unfortunate that every Govt made big claims to have brought very transparent transfer policy but nothing has changed on the ground even after the coming of BJP-PDP Coalition to power and the above data is enough to tell the true story.
Singh appealed Minister for Education to look into the matter and put in place the transfer policy in a fair and transparent way.
Others who were present in the press conference were Ayaz Ahmad Khan, Manmohan Singh & Sharanjit Singh.
