School Teacher Removed from Service in Madhya Pradesh for Violating Two-child Norm
Once again, a teacher in the Bhind district of Madhya Pradesh has been relieved of their duties due to concealing crucial information about their three children during the job application process. This action stands in direct violation of the government's established two-child policy, as confirmed by officials on Tuesday.
The termination of service was formalized through an order dated August 2nd, issued by the joint director of public instructions. The incident came to light when the school education department received a formal complaint regarding the breach of the two-child policy after Ganesh Prasad Sharma secured a teaching position at CM Rise School, Amayan, back in March of this year.
The principal of the school, Tikam Singh, who disclosed the details of the termination order, stated that in accordance with the directives from the state government's General Administration Department (GAD), a government employee is not permitted to have a third child born after January 26, 2001. In light of this regulation, Sharma's employment was terminated by the school education department for failing to disclose information regarding his third child.
The termination order explicitly outlined that the allegation against Sharma was substantiated following an investigation conducted by the district education officer (DEO). The teacher deliberately provided incorrect information to the government and deliberately withheld details regarding his third child, as stated in the order. Additionally, the order directed the DEO to initiate a formal police complaint against the teacher.
