New Transfer Policy

Dear Teachers,
The Personnel Department Punjab has issued a new Personnel Transfer Policy 2018 on 23/04/2018 which has 2 basic implications :-

1) Since it has been issued by personnel department , it applies to the staff of all the departments of Punjab Govt.

2) According to Rule 5 c of this policy , if any department has framed its own transfer policy then this transfer policy will not apply to the staff of that particular department.

The Education Department has already issued Transfer policy dated 6/02/2018 which stands intact so far. So this policy (issued by personal deptt) does not apply to employees of Education Deptt.
