The Education Department of Jammu and Kashmir will soon launch an online portal to ensure transparency in the transfers of employees and put an end to the threat of corruption. The initiative has been taken to improve the ongoing condition of the education sector. To improve the condition rationalization would be done and transfers would be made as per the requirement of education institutes.
Another motive behind the launch of online portal is to underscore the resolve of government to revamp education sector in the state. In the past many steps have been taken to promote transparency and improve efficiency in the department. To improve the standard of education in Jammu and Kashmir, state government has taken so many necessary initiatives and quality education has always been the top priority of government.
Priya Sethi, Minister of State for education said, “To promote transparency and plug the menace of corruption in transfers in the education department, which is one of the biggest in terms of human resources, an online system would be put in place.”
Further she added, “We are committed to transparency in the department and ensuring optimal utilization of human resources, so as to ensure better results in government-run schools.”
If in case the transfers are done on the basis of health, so to monitor such cases the department would also constitute an in-house medical board. In her opinion, database of all the employees would be incorporated in the transparent online portal. Thereafter the transfers would be done in an automatic manner after completion of requisite stay.
The process of rationalization has been initiated under the guidance of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and Education Minister Naeem Akhtar who have taken bold steps to ensure quality education in the state. Recently a function was organized by the department of information technology in collaboration with MBD group wherein Molvi Imran Raza Ansari, Minister for IT, Technical Education, Youth Services and Sports inaugurated an android mobile application under National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM).
The Jammu and Kashmir Education department is planning to introduce evening courses to revive late-evening life in the conflict-torn valley through students.
