Hyderabad: The batch of writ petitions filed by SGTs, school assistants, HMs and others working in government schools was listed on Tuesday before the Division Bench of Chief Justice Ujjal Bhuyan and Justice N. Tukaramji.

Though, due to paucity of time, the writ petitions did not reach before the Bench for hearing. As there was a stay on the transfer of teachers, the Division Bench extended its interim orders dated 14 February to 11 April.

In the batch of writ petitions, the rules prepared by the state are under challenge.

The writ petitions were filed by M. Sakku Bai and three others, school assistants, working in various government schools in the Telangana state challenging the Telangana Teachers Regulation of Transfers Rules 2023 made applicable to HMs, school assistants, SGTs, and other categories.

On 14 February 2023, the Chief Justice Bench directed the Telangana state not to transfer teachers because the Telangana Teachers Regulation of Transfers Rules 2023 is under challenge.

Moreover, the rules cited were not placed before the floor of the Telangana State Legislative Assembly.
