Punjab education minister Aruna Chaudhary on Tuesday cancelled with immediate effect deputation orders of any teacher or other employee in any school of the state, keeping in view the need for proper utilisation of staff in government schools and the interests of the student community.

A press release issued by the government said the interim arrangements of teachers performing duties on deputation were “causing havoc to the future of the students from academic point of view” and that the serious issue needed to be addressed.

Chaudhary further said that all the district education officers (DEOs) have been directed to cancel the deputations of teachers in their respective districts and send them to the school where he/she was originally posted. Similarly, the school heads have been instructed to ensure while drawing and disbursing the salary of the staff working under them that no one has been sent on deputation from there. The school head would be held responsible for any negligence in this regard.

She also made it absolutely clear that if in future a teacher is to be assigned extra duty or sent on deputation taking into consideration the studies of the students, then this would require the permission of the concerned director of public instructions (DPI).
