Orissa High Court clears promotion of state school teachers

Cuttack, Sat, 24 Dec 2011 ANI

Cuttack (Orissa), Dec.24 (ANI): The Orissa High Court has cleared the deck for the state government to promote senior primary school teachers under the Elementary Cadre Rules that was introduced in 1997.


A two-judge division bench of the state high court, comprising of Mr. Justices B P Das and B K Mishra, quashed all previous interim orders of the court and the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT).


It directed the state government's school and mass education secretary to fix the seniority of primary school teachers, who were declared government servants by strength of two government resolutions of 1989 and 1991.


Directing the department to go ahead with promotion of deserving teachers as per the seniority list, the high court emphatically said that any promotion effected prior to its latest ruling should be treated as non-est.


The case inter alia pertains to promotion of some school teachers that had been pending ever since Elementary Cadre Rules were introduced for school teachers in 1997.


While primary school teachers were declared government servants in 1989 and minor school teachers got that status in 1991, a gradation list of all teachers was prepared in 1997.


Accordingly, the government came out with a notification in 2009 to promote at least 18,000 teachers from Grade 4 to Grade 3 to fill up vacant post of headmasters in several schools.


This notification was challenged by the minor school teachers in the SAT which in turn directed the government not to consider the promotional avenues of the teachers who were declared government servants in 1989. (ANI with inputs)
