Transfer tales

TRANSFERS ARE a hot property. They don't just move people from one place to another but they also fill the pockets of some. The recent controversy over the teachers' transfers in Ranga Reddy district is an example. Large-scale anomalies were reported in the counselling held for transfers leading to cancellation of all the orders.

The Government appointed an officer to probe into the issue. But, the affected teachers are surprised with the Government's move since the officer heading the enquiry was reportedly involved in transfer of teachers in the neighbouring district which led to controversies. Reacting to his appointment, a teacher was heard saying: "Perhaps the Government doesn't have any sincere officer left with it now.''
