exemption of female teacher from election duty
Human Rights »Posted 5 Jul 2012
I am a primary teacher in delhi government's Sarvodaya school.
I have got a call from election commission to report as Superintendent of BLO's (Booth Level Officer's).
The work involves supervision the updatation of pay rolls which include 1) children who turn 18 2)Deaths 3) shifts.
This job requires me to work after my teaching hours at school. It is a very hectic work which will go on through out the year and will cause a lot of disturbance in my family life as well as my physical health.I have heard that delhi High Court has given an order that female teacher can be exempted from this duty. How can i be exempted from the same? and what legal action may be taken if i dont report?
You can submit a representation to both the Election Commission and your competent appointing and other authorities, explaining the reasons of ill-health etc., and requesting for exemption. Then, you can approach the Administrative Tribunal or the High Court having jurisdiction and seek appropriate directions to dispose of your representation...
