WB to introduce General Transfer for school teachers

WB to introduce General Transfer for school teachers

Transfer by choice in Govt. Aided Schools in West Bengal

Reasons to cheer for Bengal teachers ! The state Govt. is going to introduce transfer by choice for nearly 1 lakh 80 thousand teachers in aided schools. It has earlier implemented mutual transfer and about 11,000 teachers were benefited by that earlier move. But it was not very easy for the teachers to find out willing candidate for mutual transfer. To overcome this difficulty Govt. is going to introduce "transfer on application". Based on application, they may be posted as per their choice.

The eligibility will be minimum 5 years service and there should be at least 2 years of service remaining. During the entire service life a teacher may apply once for mutual transfer and once for transfer on application.
If there is more than one application for a specific school, the Govt. has designed a point based formula to fix the priority. The point formula is as under.
Female candidates : additional 3 points.
Female with less than 10 Years old child : 8 points
Handicapped candidates : additional 3 points.
Handicapped female candidate : additional 6 points.

There is additional benefit for seniority also. Those who joined before 1.1.2006 will get extra 2 points for each completed year of service while those joined afterwards will get 1 point for each year.

The scheme is likely to be operational after the current year recruitment process is over. The proposed bill is with the law ministry as present for their nod. If everything goes right, it is to be submitted in the ongoing assembly session.
