INVC,, Shimla,, The Education has been on the priority agenda of the State Government and endeavour is to make the State, the Educational Hub of the country. The educational Institutions of par excellence are being opened in the State. In order to prevent disruption of studies of the students, State Government has formulated policy to re-employ the teachers retiring during the academic session. The aim is to ensure continued availability of teachers and all other officers with a view to provide quality education in the State. The policy would be applicable to all regular teachers who have been teaching classes from first to post graduate. The teachers and other officers as Block Primary Education Officers, Assistant District Physical education Officers, Deputy Director Higher/Elementary Education shall be eligible for reemployment in the educational institutions and offices where they served at the time of retirement, depending upon their willingness to serve till the end of the current academic session. The government has taken a decision that the re-employment would be for running academic session only. For current academic session the re-employment will be till 31st March in summer and 31st December, 2010 in winter vacation schools. However, the re-employment of teachers in colleges and other officers would come to an end on 31st March for current academic session. The authority to re-employ each category of teachers vests in Block Primary Education Officer, for Junior Basic Teachers (JBT), Head Teachers (HT), and Central Head Teachers (CHT). The C&V, Trained Graduate Teachers (TGT) and Lecturers of school cadre need to apply to Head Master (HM), Principal or Head of the Institution they are serving. In case of college cadre lecturers, the head of the Institution or the Principal has been designated to give re-employment.
