A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra held that while Aadhaar would remain mandatory for filing of IT returns and allotment of Permanent Account Number (PAN), it would not be mandatory to link Aadhaar to bank accounts and telecom service providers cannot seek its linking for mobile connections.

West Bengal to amend teacher transfer rule

The Bengal government will amend transfer rules to ensure school and college teachers, particularly women, are posted in districts where their spouses work, education minister Partha Chatterjee said at a Teachers' Day programme on Wednesday.

West Bengal Colleges (Transfer of Employees) Rules, 2017

If there is no vacancy in the district to which such a transfer is sought, the teacher will be posted in an adjacent district, Chatterjee said.
West Bengal School Service Commission (General Transfer etc.) Rules 2015
"The government has decided to bring in certain changes in the existing transfer rules to make it easier to offer posting to teachers in institutions located in areas close to the places where their spouse live. How can teachers concentrate on teaching if they have to spend most of the time of the day commuting?" Chatterjee said.
West Bengal School Service Commission (Mutual Transfer) Rules 2012
According to the minister, "certain procedural problems" came in the way of clearing such transfers. "The amendment aims to remove these lapses."
Teachers staying far from their families tend to take frequent leave to be with their families, affecting the academic activities of their institutions, a senior official said.
Chatterjee cited an example. "It is not possible for someone in Jhargram to travel to Kalyani (220km away) every day to attend school or college. The teacher will spend the whole day travelling and have no time to improve the teaching and the learning process in the institution," he said.
The minister handed out Siksha Ratna awards to 60 teachers of universities, colleges and schools at the Teachers' Day event.

Telengana announced one installment of Dearness Allowance

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Monday gave his nod for one installment of DA to the government employees. The government has been pending the sanction of two DAs for eight months. An official release from the Chief Minister’s Office said that the Chief Minister signed on the concerned file to release 1.572 per cent DA with a cumulative total of 27.248 per cent with effect January 1, 2018.
The Chief Minister even before his blockbuster meeting - Pragati Nivedana Sabha – began clearing administrative files. The CM’s focus on clearing files created a buzz in political circles and media that KCR may go in for dissolution of state Assembly and seek early elections. Nevertheless, the CM promised to address the issues related to the state staff. 

Clearing of one installment of DA appears to be one such initiative. Official sources said that the last installment of the DA will be sanctioned before the announcement of Interim Relief (IR) under the new Pay Revision Commission (PRC) which will come into effect by this year-end.
