     1.    All  Transfer  of  teachers in  the School  Education Department shall  be done through annual  counseling  only;  No  transfer  request shall  be entertained  and be  given indirectly  to teachers going  on leave  on medical  grounds  or  some  other  reason  outside the counseling  system.

     2.    No  posting  shall  be  given in  a leave vacancy  caused  due to  leave sanctioned  by  the Head  Master  and Deputy  Educational  Officer  unless the teacher  concerned  (on leave)  fails  to report  back to  the school  from where she/he  has proceeded  on leave, within  15  days  from  expiry  of leave.

     3.    In  all  such  cases,  where a teacher  fails  to  join  back  after  expiry of leave to the same school  from  where she/he  had gone  on  leave, it  is the  responsibility  of  the  concerned  Headmaster and  the Mandal Educational  Officer  incase  of  Primary  Schools and  Upper  Primary Schools;  and the Headmaster  and the Deputy  Educational  Officer  in case of  High Schools,  to immediately  report the same  to the District Educational  Officer,  within  a  maximum  of  one week  from  the  date  of expiry  of  leave.

     4.    The District Educational  Officer  shall  thereupon, immediately  send  a notice to  such teacher  on leave, through registered post,  to immediately  report back from  leave.   If  there is  no response, and if  the school  happens to  be  a High School,  the District Educational  Officer may  post  an  alternate  teacher  to  that  school,  particularly  where  the teacher  on  leave is  a Mathematics/Science/English Teacher.

     5.    In  respect of  teachers, who stay  beyond  the sanctioned leave period for  more  than  15  days, unless they  have applied through Registered Post with Acknowledgement Due  for  extension of  leave and the extension is  sanctioned  by  the competent  authority  before  the  expiry  of the initial  period of  leave, they  shall  be posted  immediately  without fail, only  to a category  IV  location and the orders  sent to the teacher  by Register  Post with Acknowledgement Due  within  7 days  from  the expiry  of  15 days.  

     6.    Thereafter, it shall be the responsibility  of  the headmaster  of  the school  to which such  teacher  is  posted, to  report within  two  weeks, whether  such teacher  had reported to  duty.   Such report  shall  be sent positively  within  two  weeks  from the date of  issue of  revised posting orders by  the  District Educational  Officer.

     7.    If  the teacher  returning  from  leave fails  to join   duty  within  that  period at the  new  schools,,  the District Educational  Officer  shall  serve a notice upon  the  teacher that  “ The  unauthorized  absence  will be  treated as dereliction  of  duty; suitable disciplinary  action  initiated;  and such  period of  unauthorized absence is  liable to  be  treated as “Dies Non”.

     8.    Under  no  circumstances  shall  be  a posting  of  choice,  to  a  different school  (other  than  the school  from  which the teacher  had gone  on leave; except  where such location  is  in  category  IV),  be given to  a teacher  returning  from  leave as  per  her/his  request, since  any  such postings would constitute an  indirect  transfer,  and would violate the “Counseling  Method  for  Transfers  of  Teachers”.

     9.    Under  any  circumstances  whatsoever,  no requests  for  compulsory wait  will  be entertained  from  teachers  not  joining  duty  on expiry  of leave as originally  sanctioned.

     10.    It is  the responsibility  of  every  DEO and their  office staff  concerned,  to continuously  monitor  applications received  for  sanction  of  leave and applications  for  orders  of  posting  by  teachers  returning  from  leave; and promptly  process and  give  postings (to Category  IV location only)  to such teachers, immediately  on reporting  from  leave,  within  2  weeks at the latest (where the post  from which the teacher  proceeded on leave is filled up).

     11.  All  applications by  teachers on leave for  change of  posting  on return from  leave shall  be  made  through  Registered Post with Acknowledgement Due  only.   The  District Educational  Officer concerned  and  other  officers  of  the DEO Office responsible  for processing  of  posting  to  teachers, shall  be liable  for  any  delay  in  giving of  such  postings;  and  any  payment  of  wages  for the  gap-periods ordered  to  be  treated  as compulsory  wait  by the courts  of  law  will  be liable to  be  recovered  from  all  such  officers  of  the District Educational Officer’s  office  concerned, responsible  for  the  delay.
