3. Procs Rc No 2458/D1-4/2012, Dated: 22-4-2014 of the Commissioner & Director of School Education, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad.
I am to inform the Dist. Collector & Dist. Magistrates, DEOs and Project Officers, RVM (SSA) in the state that it is brought to the notice of the undersigned that some of the teachers are working in District Offices, MPs, MLAs, and MLCs, Chairmen's of Corporations etc on deputation basis claiming salary from school point.
In this regard this is to inform that in the RTE Act 2009, prohibits deputing teachers for non educational purposes.
a) Rule 25 (2) of RTE Act 2009 read as follows: "for the purpose of maintaining the Pupil-Teacher Ratio under sub-section (i) no teacher posted in a school shall be made to service in any other school or office or deployed for any non-educational purpose, other than those specified in section 27"
b) Rule 27 of the RTE Act 2009 read as follows "No Teacher shall be deployed for any non-educational purpose other than the decennial population census, disaster relief duties or deputed related to elections to the local authority or State legislators or Parliament as the case may be."
In the procs 3`d cited, the Commissioner & Director of School Education, Andhra Pradesh, Hyderabad issued instructions to all the DEOs/RJDSEs/POs of RVM (SSA) in the State to follow the instructions scrupulously and any deviation will be viewed seriously.
Now many RTE activists, Activist Institutions are filing cases in the Hon'ble High Court, Hon'ble Supreme Court of India and Lokayukta about deputation of teachers from schools.
I therefore request the Dist. Collector & Dist. Magistrates in the state to see that no teacher is deputed to work on deputation basis to any of the MPs, MLAs, MLCs and Chairmen's of Corporation's peshi etc for any non-educational purpose against the provisions of the RTE Act 2009.
