The joint action committee (JAC), UT, is planning to move court to highlight UT education department’s ignorance towards the deputation policy because of which city has many teachers and principals on deputation from last 10 to 20 years even as the maximum period for any teacher was five years.
They said because of teachers on deputation many Chandigarh-based teachers were not getting promotions.
The JAC held a meeting in Sector 17 to discuss the policy of deputation in UT, education department and also met education secretary to apprise him about the matter. The committee condemned the education department for flouting all rules to accommodate teachers on deputation in UT schools.

Twelve principals on deputation are heading UT schools without fulfilling the requisite norms of deputation.
