“Waiting list” of Uttarakhand Inter College Lecturers exam-2009, why teachers are not willing to move to the remote areas (durgam, ati durgam) of the Uttarakhand?


Let us remind you that this exam (“Screening test for lectures in government inter colleges 2009”)  was conducted by Uttarakhand PSC on 26th of May 2010  for the 1699 post of lecturers of various subject in the schools of Uttarakhand. Later on interviews were conducted in 2011. And then 1524 candidates got the appointments.
But 366 candidates have not joined till now.

Therefore, according to newspaper reports Education Directorate, Dehradun or Siksha Nideshalya has requested for the 25% waiting list of the candidates from UKPSC.
So after the process of the election is over there are chances of lecturer grade waiting list.
And Director C.S. Gwal has also confirmed this.

 What are the reasons for their not joining? Factors may vary. Some may be looking for appointments in the places of choice (may be their own village) and others may have some other reasons. Same is the case with the LT recruitment process.

Whatever may be the reason, looking into the situation of unemployment in Uttarakhand, especially the white collar unemployment decisions on such issues should be prompt and straightforward. What you say?

Well we also believe that teachers appointed in the remote hill regions of Uttarakhand should be encouraged through various measures. And there should be strict and quick measures for the defaulters or the naysayer.
We have heard of the policies being designed to encourage the Doctors to work in the villages of Uttarakhand. Why not make separate such policies for the teachers also?

Teachers working in those hill corners of state should have much better salary package or perks for working in those areas as compared to those working in plane areas like Dehradun (we read that some are working in the education department through their approach rather than working in schools) , Haridwar, US Nagar etc.
Teachers should be more concerned with teaching rather than anything else.

Rule for the rotation of teachers between the planes, dugam (remote) and ati durgam (far remote) etc. can be made more rational. For some places the distinction between the durgam and ati durgam is vague.
It needs to be improved.

There are policies but there might be loopholes which are generally exploited by few in power or with high approach.
Well we would like to hear your views through comments.
