Die-in-harness:The perquisites and emoluments for the dependents of Govt Employees

Friday, August 14, 2020 / 1 Comment

There are certain things that the dependents of govt employees who die in harness are entitled to get. But, it has been seen that, most of the people who are dependents of such govt employees are finding it difficult to move with the process as there may not be availability of necessary documents to be produced or non submission of nominations etc, Even if such things are perfect, the process is getting delayed for the allocation of the amount to the dependents concerned. 

Moreover, the major fact is that the family in distress may not be mentally fit to move forward for the proper disposal of the monetary benefits they are entitled to. Their lack of knowledge in the matters is also another verity. 

Under these circumstances, the well-wishers and colleagues extend their help and enable them to follow the proper procedure for the amount to be sanctioned. Hence, it would be always advisable for all to ensure whether the nominations for GIS, SLI, GPF, FBS, DCRG etc have been filed or not and the SLI, GIS, GPF passbook entries are updated and attested by the higher authorities. 

Although, all the documents are perfect and process activated, it may consume much time for fund allocation. A booklet is prepared after a thorough perusal of all govt orders regarding this, with the purpose of disseminating the necessary knowledge on what the dependents of such govt employees deserve and the steps to be undertaken for getting it done etc. 

The commendable work was done by Adv.Sri.T.M.Sreekumar, a Retired Senior Superintendent, Office of the Inspector General of Registration, Vanchiyoor, Thiruvananthapuram. It would be also advisable to refer the latest GOs and norms too in connection with this as the techno-friendly methods are made available presently everywhere for submitting applications etc flawlessly and fastly. A few sample applications are also attached herewith.

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 / 2 Comments
A separate mark list is being issued nowadays for the scores obtained in the improvement exam that students appear after the second year Higher Secondary exam. At present there is no provision to join these two in one mark sheet. The Director of General Education has reported that an apt decision will be taken to issue a mark sheet bearing both the scores in one as and when the government gives its consent. The government looked into the matter and directed to submit before the committee the recommendations for revising the exam manual. 

The Joint Director of Higher Secondary Education has reported that issue of eligibility certificate which comprises of the two certificates of the students who have failed in certain subjects in their March exam and passed the same in SAY exam prevails now and he has also requested to take a suitable decision in this matter as the exam manual committee lacks time to present the issuance of a single certificate, it may not be beneficial to the students. The Director of General Education has reported that any financial liabilities will not arise as Rs. 40 is collected from the students towards certificate fee and the NIC has to be required to prepare a software for the issue of single certificate. 

Except the delay in software preparation, the issue of both the scores in one sheet can be done on time. The government has scrutinized the matter and a new certificate would be issued as planned now for the students who get through all subjects after appearing SAY whereas a separate certificate would be issued for the improvement score. 

The government has also noticed the difficulty of such students who have to present both the certificates for the higher studies and plans to make both in one certificate to rectify this matter. Under these circumstances the Director of General Education is directed to issue one certificate bearing both the scores obtained in March exam and the improvement exam and the priority shall be given to the certificates from March exam of 2019.

Restrictions on publicity for economic help to students

Thursday, January 2, 2020 / 1 Comment
It has been commonly found that a public function is generally arranged while providing a helping hand in cash and in kind to the economically backward students. As it may affect the self esteem of the students and their mental development as well, Kerala Child Rights Protection Commission has published certain instructions to be followed as per section number 15 of child rights Protection Commission 2005.

It has been advised not to give any kind of publicity like posting advertisements with the deserving students photograph and name. Care should be given to protect the rights of children and at the same time fulfil the emerging needs of the students, not interfering with their freedom and privacy and hurting their feelings.

It has also been noticed that some welfare organisations and PTA used to distribute educational accessories like uniform to the students by conducting public meetings or after giving publicity to such events through advertisements.

Hence, the Assistant Director of Education, Assistant Director VHSE, Regional Deputy Director HSE, District and Sub District Educational officers, Principals, HMs are directed to ensure that there is no such publicity while extending a helping hand to the economically backward students.

Use of mobile phone banned in schools

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 / 3 Comments
The mobile phone, one of the modern social media has a tremendous influence in the society. The same gadget used early for very limited purposes is now being used for several matters. It has been seen that, it is used increasingly for undesirable purposes nowadays and the use of mobile phones has become a menace in the school atmosphere. 

As per a government circular in 2005, the students were restricted to use mobile phones in educational institutions. Still it has been found that its use has increased considerably. Besides the teachers were also directed against its use in classrooms. The ethics committee has given the power to the head of the institution to take action against such teachers and children as well. 

What action can be taken against those Students/Teachers who bring mobile phones to classrooms? 

As per the Government order and directions in 2005, if mobile phones are found among the students in schools it can be taken away from them and can be kept for auction and such money can be an accumulation for PTA fund. The heads of the educational institutions have been assigned the responsibility for this. The various Government orders and circulars regarding banning of mobile phones in educational institutions can be downloaded from the link below.
