Chief Minister of Punjab, Sardar Usman Buzdar, has given a formal approval to the e-transfer policy for teachers.
As per the details, the Punjab School Education Department (PSED) considered introducing an online system for the transfer of teachers working at government schools. It presented the proposal before the CM Punjab.
A meeting was held with the CM to discuss the policy. Addressing the meeting, the chief minister said that the new policy will not only save the teachers’ time but also ensure transparency, as every posting will be made on merit.
He said that teachers can also register their complaints in case of a problem and the new system will ensure improved service delivery. Moreover, the teachers will no longer have to visit from office to office for recommendations once the e-transfer policy comes into effect.
Buzdar directed to devise a comprehensive policy for postings in remote areas. He asked to chalk out a feasible strategy to ensure complete attendance of teachers at schools in Murree, Cholistan, Thal, and other remote areas. “Cleanliness should also be monitored at schools,” he added.
The provincial executive was apprised about the e-transfer policy. The meeting member were informed that certified data of all instructors at public schools has already been collected.
