Zilla Parishad Chief Executive Ajit Pawar suspended 52 teachers of Beed district on Monday. This action has been taken against these teachers after it was found that the disability certificate given for transfer was bogus.
In the intra-district transfer process of teachers of Beed Zilla Parishad, 336 teachers had attached disability certificate and had also filed an application not to be transferred due to disability or to get a convenient school. Zilla Parishad decided to verify and hear the disability certificate of these 336 teachers. These certificates were initially verified by forming seven teams of Education Department officials, District Hospital Medical Officers.
As it was felt necessary to re-examine the teachers who appeared questionable in this verification, some of them were sent to the Medical Board of Swami Ramanand Tirtha Medical College, Ambajogai for re-examination. In this, a discrepancy was found between the disability certificate of 52 teachers and the findings of the inspection.
The percentage of disabled in the certificate issued by the medical board has decreased as compared to the certificate. Therefore, Chief Executive Officer of Zilla Parishad Ajit Pawar suspended these 52 people by giving them fake disability certificates. Due to this action, there has been a stir in the education sector.
52 out of 148 certificates fake
Chief Executive Officer Ajit Pawar said, ‘200 teachers whose certificates were found to be doubtful were sent for examination by the Medical Board. We have received the reports of 148 teachers from Ambajogai Medical Board. Out of these 52 fakes have been found.
These teachers had submitted fake disability certificate to stay in taluka place or near Beed and get transfer of facility. Suspension action has been taken against these teachers. The Zilla Parishad has proposed a departmental inquiry against him.’
