Government teachers must disclose their assets : Telangana Govt
The Telangana Department of Education has issued a directive to all public school teachers asking them to disclose details of their assets annually. An order to that effect was issued by the Telangana School Education Department on Saturday, June 25.
The government, in its directive, said government teachers will have to disclose details of their assets every year. From now on, teachers must inform the authorities concerned when they want to buy or sell a property.
Details of assets should be disclosed once a year, the government directive said. It also ordered that prior authorization be obtained for the sale and purchase of movable and immovable property.
Teachers’ unions have already voiced their opposition to the government’s directive. They wonder why all teachers are asked for asset details for what one or two people have done. The decision by the Telangana Department of Education comes following a recent property dispute between a teacher and his brother. However, officials say the proposal has been in place at the Department of Education for a long time.
The case of Javerd Ali, the headmaster of Guntipalli school in Devarakadra mandal of Nalgonda district, has recently sparked controversy. Javed has been accused of doing politics and real estate without going to school regularly.
