Municipal Area Working Teachers Transfers Case - Dismissed by High Court

బదిలీల నుంచి మినహాయించాలని కోరుతూ జీవీఎంసీ పరిధిలో ఎంపీపీ, జడ్పీ పాఠశాలల్లో పనిచేసే టీచర్లు దాఖలు చేసిన పిటిషన్‌ను హైకోర్టు కొట్టివేసింది. ఈ మేరకు 25/1/2021 తీర్పు చెప్పింది. జీవీఎంసీ పరిధిలో ఒకే చోట ఎనిమిదేళ్ల సర్వీస్ పూర్తిచేసుకున్న స్కూల్ అసిస్టింట్, ఎన్జీటీ టీచర్లు విధిగా బదిలీకి దరఖాస్తు చేసుకోవాలి.

కానీ జీవీఎంసీ పరిధిలో పనిచేసే 40 మంది స్కూల్ అసిస్టెంట్లు, 22 మంది ఎన్జీటీలు తమను బదిలీ నుంచి మినహాయించాలని రెండు నెలల క్రితం కోర్టును ఆశ్రయించారు. జీవీఎంసీ పరిధిలో జడ్పీ, ఏంపీపీ పాఠశాలలను మునిసిపల్ శాఖలో విలీనంచేసే ప్రతిపాదన ఉన్నందున తామంతా జీవీఎంసీ పరిధిలో ఉంటామని కోర్టులో పిటిషన్ దాఖలు చేశారు. దీంతో గత నెలలో జరిగిన బదిలీల్లో 62 ఖాళీలను విద్యాశాఖ మినహాయించింది. దీనిపై పాఠశాల విద్యాశాఖ కోర్టులో పిటిషన్ వేసి వాదించడంతో సోమవారం న్యాయమూర్తి ఈ కేసును కొట్టివేశారు.

  • Since the dispute is revolving around the issue of transfers of teachers who are working in the schools under the control of Education and Panchayat Raj Departments, though the schools are located within the erstwhile village panchayats merged with the Municipal Corporations/ Municipalities/Nagar Panchayats, those schools are directly under the control of Panchayat Raj Department as on date and unless the management of the schools is vested with the Municipal Corporations/ Municipalities/Nagar Panchayats, the petitioners are not deemed to be the employees of their respective Municipal Corporation(s). Letters were addressed by the concerned authorities of Municipal Corporations/ Municipalities/Nagar Panchayats to the Commissioner, Department of School Education for giving control/management of the schools which are situated within the erstwhile village panchayats merged with the Municipal Corporations/ Municipalities/Nagar Panchayats and there was no response from the State Government to vest control/management of those schools with the Municipal Corporations/ Municipalities/ Nagar Panchayats. Therefore, on account of transfer proceedings proposed to be taken by the District Educational Officers of various districts in pursuance of G.O.Ms.No.54 dated 12.10.2020, as it will seriously cause prejudice to the petitioners and affect their right to continue to work within the corporation limits in the event of affecting transfers before vesting management/control of those schools with the Municipal Corporations/Municipalities/Nagar Panchayats, to protect their fundamental right guaranteed under Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India, the petitioners claimed relief stated supra in all these petitions.

Final Verdict: 
  • In view of my discussion, the petitioners have no right to continue to work in the same school or to claim writ of mandamus, in view of the future contingencies without any right in praesenti. Therefore, no writ of mandamus can be issued declaring the action of the respondents as illegal, arbitrary and it does not amount to violation of Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India, as transfer is an incidence of service, as held by the Courts in the judgments referred supra. Therefore, I hold the point against the petitioners and in favour of the respondents.
  • In view of my foregoing findings recorded in Point Nos. 1 to 3, I am of the considered view that these writ petitioners are not entitled to claim any relief, even the alternative relief. Hence, I find no ground to grant the relief as claimed by these petitioners and the writ petitions are liable to be dismissed.
  • In the result, writ petitions are dismissed. No costs. Consequently, miscellaneous petitions pending if any, shall also stand dismissed.
