Minister warns absentee teachers

Staff Correspondent

Urges them to retire, make way for replacements

DAVANGERE: Minister for Education Vishveswara Hegde Kageri has appealed to teachers who have abstained from duty for a long period to take voluntary retirement and make way for new teachers.

Talking to reporters here on Wednesday, the Minister said that he had also directed the Deputy Director of Public Instruction to serve notices to teachers who were on long leave to take voluntary retirement. If they failed to respond, action would be initiated to make them retire from service compulsorily.

He said that the Government had posted a large number of teachers and was planning to recruit many more to ensure proper coaching for students. Hence, it was not right for teachers to make students suffer by going on long leave, he said.

To a question, he said that it was difficult to regularise teachers appointed under the Mahiti Sindhu programme. However, their services were likely to be continued for a few more years.

The State Government had extended grants to aided schools that commenced before 1995. S.A. Ravindranath, Davangere district in-charge Minister, and A.H. Shivayogiswamy, Chief Whip in the Legislative Council were among those present.
