Here Comes Attendance for Teachers!

Policy Indications

Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has decided to keep a track on teachers' attendance.  The municipality will be auditing the attendance in every three months and will take strong action against  erring. Recently, the BMC had suspended 20 teachers across the city for unauthorised absence.

These unauthorised absence varied from three months to almost four years. In the light of this shocking revelation, the municipality will be holding the nuke tighter on coming days. Along with the suspension orders, sow cause notice were given to 20 teachers, including the heads of the institutions.

According to the BMC education officer, Mahesh Palkar, the civic body took stock of teacher attendance in the past and a few teachers would be suspended. “The attendance was collated but action wasn’t taken on most occasions, only one or two teachers were suspended. But, now we have taken stock of the situation and found a large number of them not reporting to work regularly. Some of them have been suspended for not conducting classes when being present or other malpractices,” 

Ramesh Joshi, who heads Brihanmumbai Mahapalika Shikshak Sabha, the BMC teachers' union, said the teachers had begun approaching them to respond to the notices. “Teachers need to understand the importance to taking permissions from the department before going on long leaves. If there are medical reasons, they need to provide supporting documents,” he said.
