Listen to the news
In the Basic Education Council schools, the government has handed over investigation of more than two and a half thousand teachers working on the same PAN number to the STF. After uploading the data of the teachers in the council schools on the Human Wealth Portal and Prerna App, two and a half thousand such teachers have come out who have changed the PAN number.
At the same time, more than hundred such cases have also come up, in which the salary of two teachers was going to the same bank account. The Basic Education Department wrote a letter to the Home Department to investigate the matter. The Home Department has handed over the inquiry to the STF on the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Renuka Kumar, Additional Chief Secretary, Basic Education Department, implemented the Human Property Portal and Prerana App in the department last year. He instructed every teacher working in the council school to upload their data on Prerna App and Manav Sampada portal.
The first was to upload and verify the data on the portal by 30 June, its duration has been extended till 15 July. During the uploading of data on Manav Sampada Portal and Prerana App, it was revealed that between 2008 and 2019, about two and a half thousand teachers changed their PAN numbers.
Their number can reach four to five thousand. The department’s Additional Chief Secretary Renuka Kumar herself is reviewing the investigation every day. He reviewed Kanpur division and Agra division on Monday. On Tuesday, a total of 11 districts including Mirzapur division were reviewed.
Every time there was recruitment of fake teachers
In the earlier council schools, teachers were recruited on the basis of merit prepared from the marks of tenth, 12th, graduate, BTC, B.Ed or other course. In such a situation, the gang that used to recruit fake teachers in schools used to collect documents and certificates of teachers already working in the department and appoint fake teachers in the name of the teacher working on the same basis.
In it, only the photo seemed to be a fake teacher, while the mark sheets, certificates, degrees, PAN card numbers were of the teacher already working. Officials say that many such cases will come up in the recruitment of almost all the assistant teachers from 1995 to 2010.
A bank account of two teachers
The investigation by the Department of Basic Education has revealed that the salaries of two teachers were going to the same bank account. Both teachers are either employed in the same district or in another district but the salary is going to the same bank account. The department believes that one of the two teachers is definitely a fake, but they are carrying out this feat with the connivance of the actual teacher.
