Amend the policy of permission to higher education for primary teachers in Himachal Pradesh

Honorable Chief Minister
Govt. of H.P., Shimla.
Subject: To amend the policy of permission to higher education for primary teachers
With regards, I want to request you that the primary teachers of Himachal Pradesh are bond to get the permission to obtain the higher qualification under the rules mentioned in the letter mentioned hereafter the petition. Please ensure the following amendments in the rules as below:-
1. The quota for granting permission for B.Ed./M.Ed./M. Phil. and Ph.D. should be raised from 1 to 5 % in respect to total number of JBT+HT+CHT (primary) teachers please because these are four different professional courses and number of graduate primary teachers is increasing rapidly. In last 8 years, there has been a great increase in the number of Graduate and Post Graduate teachers in HP Elementary education Department. Secondly, these are four different courses and the share of quota may be granted as 2.5% for B.Ed., 1.5% for M.Ed., 0.5% for M. Phil and 0.5% for Ph. D.
2. Provision for ex-facto permission must be made as some teachers do not get the permission in time due to lack of quota, delay in dispatch of the application to concerned DDEO office, lack of advertisement before 30th April every year. The degree/diploma done by the teacher without affecting the work of school may be considered valid for ex-facto permission and if the promotion of the teacher is due by that course i.e. B.Ed. etc., it may be considered valid for the said promotion with ex-facto/special permission please.
3. For B.Ed./M.Ed./M. Phil. and Ph.D., the last date for receipt of the application for permission must be at least 30th September every year as the advertisement for said courses anon come by September every year for different universities.
4. The powers to allot permission may be allotted to the concerned B.E.E.O. as the work burden will be reduce on the DDEO Offices and it will be easy for teachers to get the permission with micro observation of the required formalities and documents for the said purpose at Block level. Please amend the old rules please.
Please see the old rules of the department as below:
