Chandigarh, February 6

School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla on Saturday said the Education Department had opened the online portal to receive transfer applications of teachers, computer teachers, education providers and volunteers under the notified Teacher Transfer Policy-2019.

The Cabinet Minister said the online portal would remain open till February 13 for the transfers which would be applicable from April 10, 2021, or starting of the next academic session. He said to date, as many as 7,300 teachers had already received the benefits of the online transfer policy.

Singla said during session 2020-21, the transfers of the teachers did not take place due to closure of schools in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. He said the teachers who had already applied in session 2020-21 need not to apply again but if they wanted to rectify any data, they would be allowed to do so. He said for the session 2021-22, apart from regular teachers, computer teachers, education providers, EGS volunteers, STRs and AITs had also been made eligible to apply online for the transfers.

Singla said this year, teachers working in the border areas would also be getting benefits of transfers as fresh recruitments had been done by the government, especially in border areas.

Another chance for class xi students

School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla said due to Covid, the entrance test for admission to meritorious schools for students seeking admission in Class XI could not be conducted last year. "The government has decided to provide an opportunity to Class XI students, who enrolled for the entrance test for admission to meritorious schools, to take the examination this year. They will be admitted to Class XII," he said.
