We all know that 08-May-2012 is declared as a Public Holiday in West Bengal under N I Act.
Is it possible that a school is remained open on that day?
And the absentee staffs are punished with a Casual Leave!
Please explain.May 8, 2012 at 6:04 am #72392AnonymousGuest
I think its never possible. It clearly violates the Govt. order. Lets see what our other friends say.May 8, 2012 at 6:16 am #72395AnonymousGuest
Schools will remain opened from 1st to 7th May as per G.O. No. 770-SE/S/10M-108/12 dated 23/04/12 for observing Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore’s Birth Anniversary.May 8, 2012 at 6:29 am #72396AnonymousGuest

thanks for your reply.May 8, 2012 at 8:06 am #72404AnonymousGuest
I slightly disagree with you by posting my following humble submission.
If 8th May has already been declared by the school authority brfore hand of declaring it as holiday under NI Act and further if ALL THE TEACHERS want to enjoy their RIGHT TO HOLIDAY, how could it possible to observe the day where the talent of students are supposed to be nourished!
You may argue that as per G.O. dated 23-4-2012 they should observe from 1st to 7th May (please mind 6th is Sunday). But this G.O. could not be received by all schools. Some schools traditionally observe the day on 8th MAY every year, how could it be managed if all the teachers remain ABSENT( I should not use this – as it is a holiday then what should be appropriate word – REFRAIN)!
As per G.O. the week long observation should be “without hampering NORMAL CURRICULUM” that means after holding all classes and after end of all classes – will all those teachers, without violating Govt Order, do agree to remain PRESENT after school hours to pay homage to the Poet!
Will you please highlight the solutions to the dilemma from the school or Headmaster’s point of view! Is it that the Headmaster is using them for his personal service!
I think putting question on this matter is an attempt to insult the Great Kabiguru instead of paying homage to Him – as the Govt desires!
I personally attended a procession in the morning organized by a school where only 7 out of 23 teachers were present!
In my opinion Violation of Govt orders to the good or greater cause should not be considered as an offense.
I invite every member to discuss the problem from the school authority’s point of view in order to observe the day in presence of ALL TEACHERS on 8th or 1st – 7th MAY after school hour! Please post your views…May 8, 2012 at 8:11 am #72406AnonymousGuest
during writing this an SMS banged into my cell from an unsaved number asking me
” NI Act-r chhuti ki listed 65 days-r atirikta paoa jabe?”
what will be the answer!!!!May 8, 2012 at 9:58 am #72410AnonymousGuest
Dear friend Biku, I can not but appreciate your way of thinking. If all of us could set our mind on that way , I think it would definitely put our nation on a concrete base. Actually we all are in a topsy-turvy condition due to the policies of policy makers. Our friend Keyshikr rightly said that the right hand of our govt dont know whats the left hand doing.
From my point of view, the so called holidays for observing this kind of days should be stopped. Better to declare it some observing day. The homage should be paid not only at the institutions but also at all the Govt. offices and all of us should take participation.
Waiting for more comments from our friends.May 8, 2012 at 10:33 am #72412AnonymousGuestBIKU wrote:” NI Act-r chhuti ki listed 65 days-r atirikta paoa jabe?”

I also agree with your proposal. with thanks.May 8, 2012 at 12:38 pm #72417AnonymousGuestsom wrote:” NI Act-r chhuti ki listed 65 days-r atirikta paoa jabe?”
I think it is listed holiday of all Primary School Council. It is in 65 but we observe the day every year like as Independence day, Republic day.
that is why it is not extra near us.We have observed 1 to 7th may on account of last phase of 150th birth day. to day i.e 8/5/12.is 151th.Birthday . With regards.May 9, 2012 at 9:21 am #72425AnonymousGuest
BIKU’s point of view is appreciate-able but I can’t understand whyQuote:But this G.O. could not be received by all schools
! If our govt. is so keen to observe the day why the circular was not circulated early enough. I think the 8th May didn’t come before-time.

most unfortunately in our country Red letter days are observed by holidays.It’s a demand too. So people may think it’s a dishonor to work on that day. Rather some compensatory leave may be arranged officially for that purpose. I think these days are declared holiday so that people can attend various program. So no one should be compelled to attend institution on that day if these cause is shown by him. So arrangement/ facilities should be there so that one feel to pay homage at the institution itself. Yes my proposal may seem awkward but let’s not be hypocrite. We are entitled to get 65 holidays and if we have to be present on holidays too what the meaning remains of 65 days holiday? Compensatory leave is also allowed in leave rule. Is not it my friends?
Order like observation from 1st May to 7th May without compensatory leave is ambitious because there are two holidays.Again if Order is read as the program should be after school ti.e. at noon , will the little children feel it cultural. Would Rabindranath himself would be happy as a child or a lover of a child?
In the present system the cage is being decorated too well(that is welcomed) but is any body really thinking from the Parrot’s point of view?

Thanks you Biku for sharing the information. actually my point was that the govt. should took decision much earlier.Besides, sms is also a valid way logically and legally… however many urgent news are communicated through news paper advertisement… Again I am a primary teacher from bankura district which is has been declared to be a pioneer of e-governance in our state yet many schools get many news – and hardly any circular at school – after a long time and even after the program already starts though there are SIKSHABANDHUS who are suppose to communicate any news from si office. And you may also argue whether we, the teachers, waited for the circular to enjoy a holiday when unfortunately ex- chief minister died or holiday was declared through media by honorable CM? my point is not to criticize the govt. only or to blame the teachers alone but I’m really fade up with the things going on in our society and especially in the field of education.And in no way i ‘m denying my responsibility in it too.
THANKS…May 17, 2012 at 5:05 am #72582AnonymousGuest

Aided/ Sponsored schools being non-govt. organisations are NOT under any obligation to remain closed on any of the holidays declared by the State Govt. under NI Act – be it declared before commencement of the year or in the currency of the year. In other words, such schools have every right to prepare & approve their OWN holiday list as per the Model List of the Board. State Govt. does NOT forward copy of its holiday list to the schools as it is not meant for them. However, if the copy of the Notification or G.O. is forwarded to the Director of School Education or D.I.(SE) /(P) for compliance with the Govt. decision in schools then schools shall compulsorily declare these days as holidays. This is the official procedure of following an instruction or order.

It is quite obvious that when the teachers are required to be present in the schools for attending/ organising cultural programmes unlike Govt. employees how can they enjoy that day in home or elsewhere without official works! So, schools may exchange these days with some other holidays, especially in continuation of Summer/Puja/Winter (Christmas) vacations or with any local festival etc.
