We have not set any parameter yet but have sought report of poor performance: Official

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir School Education Department is likely to withhold ‘annual increment’ to the teaching faculty having poor performance in annual regular results of 10th and 12th standard.

Top officials of the department told news agency Kashmir News Observer that the School Education Department has not set any parameters to determine the output of annual regular results of 10th and 12th standard.

“However, we have sought a report from the concerned CEOs about the schools and teaching staff who have not given good output as per the expectation and requirements,” the official said.

The CEO has also said that the concerned shall also submit an application for release and sanction of Annual Increment which shall be released on the basis of performance achieved during the academic year 2022-23.

“The DDOs shall adopt same procedure for their subordinate staff and released Annual Increment accordingly,” it reads
