No transfer request shall be entertained and be given indirectly to teachers going on leave on medical grounds or some other reason outside the counselling system.

2) No posting shall be given in a leave vacancy caused due to leave sanctioned by the Headmaster and Deputy Educational Officer unless the teacher concerned (on leave) fails to report back to the school from where she/he has proceeded on leave, within 15 days from expiry of leave.

3 ) In all such cases, where a teacher fails to join back after expiry of leave to the same school from where she/he had gone on leave, it is the responsibility of the concerned Headmaster and the Mandal Educational Officer in case of Foundational School and Foundational School Plus; and the Headmaster and the Deputy Educational Officer in case of High Schools/High School Plus, to immediately report the same to the District Educational Officer, within a maximum of one week from the date of expiry of leave.

4 ) The District Educational Officer shall thereupon, immediately send a notice to such teacher on leave, through registered post with acknowledgement due, to immediately report back from leave. If there is no response, necessary action shall be initiated as per AP CCA Rules, 1991 from time to time and ensure seamless transition of students with appropriate competencies.

5 ) In respect of teachers, who stay beyond the sanctioned leave period for more than 15 days, unless they have applied through Registered Post with Acknowledgement Due for extension of leave and the extension is sanctioned by the competent authority before the expiry of the initial period of leave, they shall be posted immediately to Category IV location without fail and the orders shall be sent to the concerned teacher by Register Post with Acknowledgement Due within 7 days from the expiry of 15 days.

6) Thereafter, it shall be the responsibility of the headmaster of the school to which such teacher is posted, to report within two weeks, whether such teacher had reported to duty.

8) Under no circumstances shall be a posting of choice, to a different school (other than the school from which the teacher had gone on leave; except where such location is in category IV), be given to a teacher returning from leave as per her/his request, since any such postings would constitute an indirect transfer, and would violate the "Counseling Method for Transfers of Teachers".

9 ) Under any circumstances whatsoever, no requests for compulsory wait will be entertained from teachers not joining duty on expiry of leave as originally sanctioned.

10) It is the responsibility of every District Educational Officer and their office staff concerned, to continuously monitor applications received for sanction of leave and applications for orders of posting by teachers returning from leave; and promptly process and give postings (to Category IV location only) to such teachers, immediately on reporting from leave, within 2 weeks at the latest (where the post from which the teacher proceeded on leave is filled up).

concerned and other officers of the DEO Office are responsible for processing of posting to teachers, shall be liable for any delay in giving of such postings; and any payment of wages for the gap-periods ordered to be treated as compulsory wait by the courts of law will be liable to be recovered from all such officers of the District Educational Officer's office concerned, responsible for the delay.
