Teachers have protested on the first day against digital presence in primary schools in Uttar Pradesh. The teachers worked with a black band on their hands. On the first day only 6 teachers registered digital presence across the state. There are more than 6 lakh primary teachers in the state. Teachers and staff in schools will have to mark digital presence from 7.45 am to 8 am. However, now it has been extended till 8.30 am.

DG School Education Kanchan Verma has sent an order to all district basic education officers for digital presence. The order issued said that all teachers and staff working in council schools will now have to mark their attendance in digital mode from 7.45 am to 8 am. The Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Department informed through social media that school teachers will now be able to register their attendance up to 30 minutes after the scheduled time. However, they have to explain the reason for being late.

Why was the order issued?

This order has been issued due to late arrival of teachers in schools. Earlier this order was supposed to be implemented from July 15, but it was implemented across the state from July 8 itself. The teachers’ unions say that their demands should be met first and then the new system will be implemented.

Congress leader Ajay Kumar Lallu, former student union president and two-time MLA, accused the Yogi government of imposing absurd rules and burdening primary school teachers. In a post, he asked that the government should tell about schools across the state that are submerged in water and where there are no roads. How would any teacher make their online presence there?
