Punjab govt’s new rule for teachers seeking leave to go abroad: ‘Book tickets only if nod granted’

The gravity of the situation can be gauged from the fact that this year alone more than 3,500 teachers have applied for ex-India leave of which more than 1,550 have been rejected.

With several of its teachers flying abroad on leave, and some not returning even after their sanctioned leave period got over, the Punjab government Tuesday made it clear that educationists must book their travel tickets only after their applications for ex-India leave is approved. Some teachers, a senior official in the Education Department, said apply for leave at the last minute and show air tickets to ensure that their application is not rejected.
