The policy is based on a set of parameters including age, gender, and performance. Decision of allotment to a vacancy is based on a composite score of points earned by a teacher. For example, weighatge is given to teachers who suffer from chronic liver and kidney diseases, HIV AIDS, or cancer will be given additional points. Likewise, female teachers who are either widow, divorced, or separated will be given preference. Male teachers, who are widower (who lost his wife and are not re-married) and have one or more minor children and/or unmarried daughters, too will be given extra weightage. Recipients of national/state teachers’ awards will also be given preference.

The policy brings relief to spouses working in secondary schools in different districts. For, the government has made arrangements to shift them to one district. In addition, it also takes care of the differently-abled, namely visually impaired, sound-and-speech impaired and locomotive disability. All such persons with above 80% disability are given 50 points. A disability lying between 60%-80% will be given 40 marks while less than 60% but greater than 40% will be given 30 marks.

The teacher transfer policy for government teachers, said an official, is aimed at ensuring equitable, demand based distribution of teachers to protect academic interest of students and optimize job satisfaction amongst its employees in a fair and transparent manner.
