Srinagar, July 3rd: The Jammu and Kashmir School Education Department has begun a procedure to release and sanction ‘Annual Increment’ to teaching staff based on performance in regards to the result % of class 10th and 12th standard examinations.

According to a senior department official, teachers who do poorly on the tenth and twelfth grade exams would have their annual increases withheld or punished by the Department of School Education.


This is according to the official who said, “Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK) has ordered all the concerned stakeholders to release and sanction Annual Increment on the basis of the performance of the respective school.”

Meanwhile, in a circular, the CEO of Anantnag’s education department requested that all DDOs under its jurisdiction report their schools’ 10th and 12th grade pass rates within a week.

In addition, the CEO has instructed the relevant parties to file an application for release and sanction of Annual Increment, to be paid out based on performance throughout the 2022-2023 school year.

With language like “The DDOs shall adopt same procedure for their subordinate staff and released Annual Increment accordingly,” it’s clear that the government intends to examine and demand explanations and reasons from instructors at those public schools that have fared badly in outcomes of 10th and 12th standard.

Alok Kumar, the principal secretary of the Department of School Education, has promised that such educators would get training to help them do a better job in the classroom.

When asked about schools whose students’ tenth and twelfth grade test scores fell short of expectations, Kumar responded, “We will seek answers from teachers of those schools.”

The department is aware of such schools, the principal secretary said. You may be certain that “we will take care of it.”

Recently released yearly regular results for 10th and 12th grade reveal disappointing outcomes for a lot of government institutions.
