  • Raju Das

    Mr. Utpal Mukherjee we know that you were a ex sergeant of Indian air force. But please don’t highlights your self for a several times that you were a ex sergeant of air force. Now you are a primary teacher and you should always remember it. Thank you.

    • Utpal Mukherjee

      Mr. Raju Das,
      I feel pity on you. I think you could not achieve your target in your life what you wanted to be. Thats why you are jealous on me (or may be on others who are in better position than you). I am proud to be a Sergeant of Indian Air Force. Now I am a Primary Teacher. I am also proud for my present occupation. What is the wrong to project my identity? I advise you to acquire higher education and knowledge and be something extra-ordinary. (I doubt about your qualification. Because your comments are full of spelling-mistakes and grammatical mistakes). Don’t feel jealous on anybody. It will neither fetch happiness to you, nor you will become a “HERO” for making such a foolish comment. Try to give respect to others if you want to get respect.

    • Dibakar Mondal

      Mr. Utpal Mukherjee has given appropriate reply to Raju Das. I salute Mr. Mukherjee that he was a Sergeant of Indian Air Force. I too feel proud for our Defence Personnel and Ex-Servicemen. Raju Das should ask apology from Mr. Mukherjee.

    • Jayanta Dey

      To Raju Das, Before pointing out anybody or giving advice to anybody just think what are you. From where did you learn English ? This platform is to be used for solving our problems. I have seen many comments made by Mr. Utpal Mukherjee and I feel he (Mr. Mukherjee) has a positive attitude to help others. What is your problem? It will be better if you oil your own machine. Understood ? I congratulate Mr. Mukherjee for a heavy slap on your face with a very descent language.

      • Raju Das

        I am really very sorry for my previous comment against Mr. Utpal Mukherjee.
        Utpal Sir, please do not mind anything. In future I shall not comment like this. Kindly forgive me. I request Utpal Sir to please give me your phone No. I want to speak with you. Again, I am sorry.

    • Utpal Mukherjee

      My dear sister,
      I’m Utpal Mukherjee, an Ex Sergeant of Indian Air Force and presently a primary teacher of Ashurali FP School of Diamond Harbour North Circle, South 24 Parganas.
      I feel your difficulties, because, I was also appointed to a school which was 46 km away from my home. I projected my problems in details to my DPSC and I got my Transfer Order near to my home.
      I advise you to project your problems in details to your DPSC. I am sure that your case will be considered sympathetically and you will be transferred near to your home. Best wishes.

      • Prasenjit chakraborty

  • Utpal Mukherjee

    I’m an ex Sergeant of Indian Air Force, joined as Asst Teacher of Tajpur FP School, Kulpi-II circle, South 24 Parganas on 25/02/2010. Distance of my school from my home is approx 46 km. My mother expired before 4 yrs. My 76 yrs’ old father is a case of Progressive Dementia. He has lost his memory, even, he cannot recognize me. He is fully depending on me. I applied for my transfer on 02/11/2011 to my home circle, Diamond Harbour North. Since then, I am struggling for my transfer, but nobody from my SIS, Kulpi-II up to the Chairperson of DPSC, south 24 pgs is showing any sympathy towards me or my ailing father! My Question is, how others are getting transferred so easily ? As an ex-serviceman, do I not deserve any sympathy ? I request our honourable Chief minister, Mamata-didi to inter-vain in this matter, so that an ex sergeant of IAF, who served for 20 years may get transferred to home circle.

      I am grateful to the Chairperson of DPSC, South 24 Parganas (Mrs. Suranjana Chakraborty) and DPSC, South 24 Parganas that they have sympathetically considered my problems. Now I am transferred to Ashurali FP School, Diamond Harbour North Circle. This school is about 3 km from my home. Thanks to all of them who are involved in processing of my transfer.

        Dear friend Mr. Subir Saha,
        After opening this website after many months, I saw your mail just now. I don’t know whether your wife is transferred to your desired location or not. If she is already transferred, it’s fine. If not, please tell her to put-up an application again to the DPSC, COB through the Sub Inspector of Schools of concerned Circle. All problems must be written in the application in details and it may be supported by relevant documents such as Medical Certificate, Certificate from MLA / MP etc. I hope that the concerned authorities will consider your case favourably and your wife will be transferred to desired area at the earliest. I can give you surety that (now-a-days) DPSCs are very transparent and credible in this regard. Best wishes for both of you.

      • Subir

        Hi Mr Utpal thanks for your comment, i have completed the process from COB no i am looking for action that will be initiated from DPSC 24 PGNS and APC bhawan.
        Can i have your number?

  • Koushik Das

    My wife is a primary teacher in Nadia district I my job location is in Kolkata. She applied for inter-district transfer to Ndaia District Council. There was a mistake in the application for which, instead of forwarding it to Kolkata District Council, NDPSC forwarded it to South 24 Pgs. council and they rejected it as the circle was not in their jurisdiction and handed over the original application to us.
    Would you please advise me what to do next to get transferred to Kolkata.
    Can we proceed for a correction in the previous application or the entire process needs to be initiated one again?

    • WBXPress Team

      As the application is rejected and returned in original to the incumbent, the process is to be initiated once again with necessary correction.

      • Koushik Das

        Thanks a lot…

        • Koushik Das

    It is heard that a female teacher will get preference in transfer after completion of 2 yrs of her job. Is it true?

  • WBXPress Team

    6: As per West Bengal Primary School Teachers Recruitment Rules, 2001, Head Teacher means the teacher of a Primary School appointed as Head Teacher of the primary school by the Council.
    The Council may utilise the services of the senior most primary teacher in a primary school as the teacher-in-charge, temporarily for a maximum period of six months at a time, when a panel of head teachers is not ready or the post of a head teacher is lying vacant for a considerable period of time.

  • WBXPress Team

    7: DPSC is responsible for teacher recruitment, transfer, promotion, leave, salary / benefits disbursement, etc of the primary school teachers. Now DPSC may take said resolution but DPSC must seek approval from the WBBPE. Then its legal.

  • Asit Baran Pal

    You can apply for mutual transfer even before completion of 2 years of service. There is no problem at all.

  • Utpal Mukherjee

    Obviously. There is no bar to apply for your transfer. Project your problems in details to your DPSC. Now-a-days DPSCs are very sympathetic. I also faced similar problems like you. I am now transferred near to my home. Best wishes.
