The application was processed in the Board meeting as well as recommended by the ward councillor.

140 Dear Sir, in 1988, DSE, WB sanctioned a post of Assistant Teacher with specific academic qualification of graduation with Geography as combination subject in Social Science group. Incumbent selected is a Graduate in B.Com with no combination subject as Geography. After that, he obtained spl hons in Accountancy. He was selected to the post and was allowed with hons. scale of pay w.e.f. his dt of appointment. DSE could find out the blunder in 2005 & ordered to withdraw his hons scale of pay. He complied with the order of DSE,WB in 2005,September. DI/S,SE, North 24 Pgs, in terms of the order of DSE, Wb, ordered the Teacher to pay back the overdrawn salary towards hons scale of pay. The Teacher filed a writ before the Hon’ble High Court, Calcutta for quashing the Orders of DSE,WB and DI/S,SE, North 24 Parganas whereupon The Court granted an order of Stay of operation of the said Orders and he was paid lacs of money in 2009 as salary under Hons. scale of pay w.e.f. 1998 under revised order of pay & allowances while the ground reality is that the school concerned got upgrade to X class High school where also no subject is taught as Accountancy. Thus, not only a huge amount of money is just drained of the Govt but also, due to having no teacher in Geography in school, students are suffering a lot, particularly of class IX,X. Govt. of west Bengal, particularly the Education Department may note that the WP No.17208(W) of 2007 with CPAN 291 of 2007 (Sudip Bose -VS-State of WB & Ors)is still to be contested appropriately for justice to the Order(s) of DSE,WB,and DI/S.SE, North 24 Pgs for the interest of huge wastage of Govt. Fund & school concerned. Please ask at Forums
