1902 Masters of Kashmir Region Listed for Transfer in Annual Transfer Drive

The School Education Department of Kashmir has released a notification listing 1902 Masters who are likely to be considered for transfer as part of the Annual Transfer Drive (ATD) 2023. The Directorate of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) received a total of 3624 transfer applications from Masters, out of which 787 expressed their desire to continue working in their current schools in Zones III, IV, and V.

The list of the 1902 Masters scheduled for transfer under the ATD includes several teachers who have served at the same government school for an extended period, ranging from over 10 years to 25 years or more.

One such example is Bashir Ahmad Dar, who has been posted at BMS Bogund Kulgam for the past 15 years and will be relocated if transferred under the ATD. Khaleda Bano, currently posted at GMS Handwara, will also be leaving her position after spending more than 25 years at the same institution. Many other teachers on the list have completed 15 to 20 years at their current schools, while some have served for 7 to 12 years.

The School Education Department previously issued a “conditional” process for the Annual Transfer Drive 2023. According to the department, employees with a tenure of three years or more in Zone I, II, or III, as per the transfer policy-2023, were required to apply online in the prescribed format. The policy specified that Teachers-Grade II, III, RReTs, and 3rd-grade teachers were not eligible to apply, and their applications would not be entertained on the portal.

The department outlined the preferences for posting, stating that an employee working in Zone I should opt for Zones II, III, IV, and V. Similarly, an employee in Zone II should choose Zones I, III, IV, and V, while those in Zone III, IV, and V could apply within the same zone.

The School Education Department categorized zones based on the distance from the district headquarters, with Zone I falling within the municipal limits, Zone II extending up to 20km outside the municipal limit, Zone III ranging from beyond 20km to 40km, Zone IV beyond 40km, and Zone V including areas where a change of residence is required, as well as schools inaccessible by motorable roads and requiring a walking distance of 7km or more one way from the nearest motorable road.

The Annual Transfer Drive aims to ensure a fair distribution of teaching staff across schools in the Kashmir region. By transferring teachers who have served at one school for an extended period, the Department of School Education hopes to promote fresh perspectives and provide equal opportunities to teachers in different areas.

The transfers will contribute to the overall improvement of the education system and facilitate professional growth for teachers in the region.
