SDO of Durgapur, dist-Burdwan has compelled secondary and higher secondary school teachers to work as a Booth Level Officer (BLO), so to visit door to door of the voters as compulsory duty. Is it compulsory duty for the teachers? She shows ‘sec-32 of the representation of the people Act 1950. Please comment.
According to the manual,the duty of a school teacher is teaching, examine the answer sheet (school,board,council),invigilation, and for the development of the students cum schools, acts by the instruction of H.M./T.I.C.
But now a days all are possible. Now, S.D.O, B.D.O. are asked to do the work which is their mostly departmental activities . After few days, we will not anxious to see, we are forced to do work, obey the order by the Pradhan.
Now the teachers duties are marketing , cooking, testing, serving; washing utensils,toilets, class-rooms,etc. To do the Student’s bank accounts, SC/ST/OBC certificates, Adhar card, voter list, the duty of polling , counting of polling etc. are the duties of teachers So. I think, the manual should be made new.
Thanks a lot.
