    Government school teachers from 13 districts in Telangana protested on Tuesday, demanding that their spouses be transferred to the same district. Around 20 teachers demonstrated in front of the District Collectorate office in Medchal, highlighting their situation and urging authorities to resolve the issue.

    The teachers have been waiting for their spouses’ transfers, which were promised under GO 317. This policy stated that spouses would be allotted to the same district. However, due to technical reasons, transfers have been stalled in 13 districts, with some pending for 16 months.

    The affected couples have been appealing to the government and authorities for the past 16 months to ensure that both husband and wife can work in the same district. In January last year, re-allotment orders were issued for 615 teachers in the school assistant category, but orders for another 1,600 in the spousal quota have yet to be issued.

    Vivek S, President of the Telangana Spouse Forum and a government school teacher, said that since January 2022, the couple has been waiting for transfers. With the academic year ending soon, teacher spouses are worried about their future. The group has appealed to the State government to take immediate action to transfer the remaining school assistants, SGTs, and linguist spouses.
