Probe confirms irregularities

Ravi Reddy

Appointment of teachers


  • Parallel file created in Secretariat
  • Report zeroes in on kingpin
  • Finds violations in four more schools
  • Appointments for past one year looked into

    HYDERABAD: The enquiry by the Director of School Education (DSE), K. Ramakrishna Rao, into the alleged irregularities committed in the recruitment of aided teachers for two schools in Vijayawada and Bhimavaram has reportedly found that orders and proceedings were tampered to favour certain educational institutions.

    Parallel file

    The report confirms the statement by the Principal Secretary of School Education, S. Chellappa, on April 8 that some officials at the Secretariat had created a parallel file pertaining to the sanction of teacher posts in Bishop Azaraiah High School.

    The report is learnt to have nailed an office-bearer of the Aided Schools Management Association, who is said to be the kingpin of the entire episode.

    His role is suspected in creation of parallel files and circulation of the same in connivance with some officials in Secretariat.

    The DSE came across similar violations in four more institutions.

    Report submitted

    Mr. Ramakrishna Rao, who conducted the departmental probe into the alleged affairs of the Bishop Azaraiah High School, Vijayawada, and Lutheran High School, Bhimavaram, submitted his report to the Government on Friday.

    It is understood that the report recommended recovery of Rs. 33 lakhs paid to a school towards arrears of the aided teachers.

    A similar payment of Rs. 4.50 lakhs was made in March to a third school in Vijayawada but the authorities instructed the banks to stop the payment.

    `Ban violation'

    Reports had appeared in the media alleging that 17 aided teachers posts were filled in violation of the ban on recruitment by Bishop Azaraiah High School and another 10 by Lutheran High School.

    In wake of the reports, the Chief Minister, Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy, had ordered a CID inquiry and directed the Director of School Education to conduct departmental probe and submit the report in a week.

    All teachers' appointments made between April 1, 2004 and March 31, 2005 are being probed. Eleven teams had been constituted to scrutinise all such appointments and submit its report to the DSE by Monday.
