Bhubaneswar, Oct 18: The Odisha government had opened a portal for efficient and transparent transfer of school teachers in the state.
The Odisha School Teacher Transfer Portal was developed with an objective to ensure the right allocation of teachers and to provide them an opportunity to choose their preferred school, track the application progress and also update their personal data.
However, the teachers are facing problem in submitting the transfer application as the portal is not opening at the right time.
The timeline for submitting online application for upper primary school teachers is February 28 and the proceedings should be completed by June 10 every year. Similarly, the transfer process of primary school teachers should be completed by July end.
However, the teachers are facing problem in applying for transfer as the portal is not opening for over seven months.
This year the portal was to be opened by March or April and the transfer proceedings were to be completed by July. But the transfer portal is yet to open, the teachers alleged.
