Our knowledgeable H.M. is found to be reluctant in case of updating the service books of the ATs. This has really been a matter of concern and excruciating exasperation to many of my senior colleagues, one of them having been compelled to arrange for the same in exchange of a handsome amount of money with two others, on the verge of retirement, following his line of arrangement and one hanging in a balance. Our H.M. simply refuses to prepare the service books on the silly pretext that during procedure of preparation of service books he may unknowingly or unwillingly damage the important information which is unacceptable to us. Now, I request all the members of AskWB to help us out of this impasse. I further ask whether our H.M. is correct from his standpoint.May 21, 2015 at 5:58 pm #80432
… during procedure of preparation of service books he may unknowingly or unwillingly damage the important information which is unacceptable to us.
Does it mean, Staff under HM do not know, how to prepare service book? Then how service book of an employee is sent to Treasury at the verge of retirement?May 21, 2015 at 6:47 pm #80434
Actually, this is the very point I was intending to raise in a bit roundabout way. So far as I have seen the senior teachers of my school, they manage to update their service books with the helpof other senior experienced persons of the concerned department in exchange of money. It is as if an usual practice for the teachers of our school. I really cannot make out anything out of this indifferent attitude of our H.M. Suggest me how to tackle the situation because I know this is wrong.May 24, 2015 at 4:13 pm #80445
If someone apply for medical leave or other kind of leave, that is to be recorded in service book. Then it will be updated.
So apply for few days of medical leave.
It is not a joke. I myself applied for 3 days EL just to sure that my service book be updated. And they updated it.May 24, 2015 at 4:16 pm #80446
Once it is updated, make a duplicate one and keep with your custody.May 24, 2015 at 4:24 pm #80447
All right then. I will start applying your method. And, thanks for showing me a way out of this.May 24, 2015 at 5:35 pm #80448
To prepare and update the Service Books of individual employees is the responsibility of the HM in a School. He should maintain a separate Leave Account Book of the employees so that the Service Book may be updated at least at the end of every year. During this updation he is required to sign beside the new entries and the concerned employee is required to countersign beside his signature. Some HMs do this process of Updation every year, some do at an interval of 3-4 years with the help of the Leave Account Book. But one thing is clear that it is the responsibility of the HM and the employee should verify and countersign on it to approve the entries made by the HM.
This is a normal process. But I cannot understand why should an employee pay for it. More and more an HM may request an employee to purchase the Service Book or a Cover File to preserve it at his/her own cost (Maximum Rs.40-Rs50).
Our H.M. simply refuses to prepare the service books on the silly pretext that during procedure of preparation of service books he may unknowingly or unwillingly damage the important information which is unacceptable to us.
During preparation/updation of Service Book. the concerned employee needs to verify and countersign on it for every new entries as I told before. So if you keep record of your own service details, your HM will not be able to make wrong entries because if you disagree to countersign, he is bound to show you proof for the entries made by him.May 25, 2015 at 9:40 am #80451
You seem to be confounded by the facts I just have stated. But however absurd it may seen to you, it’s as fact that my senior colleagues have been experiencing for long. The senior colleagues on the verge of retirement are compelled to look for outside assistance in exchange of money regarding the updation of service books before the submission of the same to the treasury. Now, it is up to us as to whether we take the matter to the higher authority or teach our stubborn H.M. a lesson. Now. I ask you whether we should approach the concerned D.I. for a solution to this nuisance or not. Isn’t there any tactical way of dealing with the problem?
