A policy to re-engage retired government teachers against left over vacancies has been introduced to makeup the “unavoidable” lack of teaching staff in schools. A panel comprising retired teachers will be prepared every year, to the extent of 25 percent of the sanctioned posts, in each category. This will ensure teachers are available in schools all through the year.
To prepare the panels, there will be 50 marks each for experience and results. Two marks for each completed year in service in the cadre up to a maximum 50 marks will also be allotted. However, the condition of a maximum 50 marks in case of experience does not apply for PRTs. The same shall be calculated by multiplying percentage of results, up to two decimal multiplied by 10 and divided by 100. The marks shall be given up to two decimal. However, experience will be counted only for the period in which the incumbent had taught the relevant subject. In case of a tie in the merit, the incumbent younger in age will be preferred, Haryana Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma said, adding the integrity of the candidate should not have been doubted during service.
The state itself is leaving no stone unturned to fill vacancies of teachers in different categories through regular recruitments, yet somehow there remains a shortage of teaching staff for various reasons. Retired teachers will be given a fixed remuneration as per the state government’s re-employment policy and latest fixation of pay on re-employment of pensioners, including military pensioners, retired on or after attaining the age of 55 years.
