West Bengal government launches portal for transfer of school teachers
The 'Utsoshree' portal will enable teachers to see the update on their transfer applications
The West Bengal government on Saturday launched a portal to bring transparency in transfer of teachers of state-run schools. The 'Utsoshree' portal will enable teachers to see the update on their transfer applications, state education minister Bratya Basu told reporters.
"The entire process ranging from teachers' applications to transfer orders will be made online in a transparent and time-bound manner. They will know the real-time update on their applications. This will negate the possibility of a file being stuck somewhere without any reason," Basu said after launching the portal.
Those who are permanent employees and have worked in a school for at least five years can apply on the online platform for transfer, he explained. The department also issued a toll-free and two WhatsApp numbers and an e-mail ID for those seeking the update on their requests.
Last week Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee announced the government would come up with a portal to aid teachers for transfer.
