Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has announced to extending the joining date further after one month of the lifting of the lockdown for the newly recruited candidates selected through the direct recruitment process i.e. PRTs/TGTs/PGTs ,who have been given a promotion to the post of HM through Limited Departmental Examination on 01.04.2020 along with the instructions to reach their posting area till 15.04.2020 but due to lockdown failed to reach their allotted area.
Amid lockdown, many candidates could not reach their posting destination on the date allotted to them after their selection for the positions in the respective Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) school and had presented their concern requesting the extension of their joining dates. To the same issue, Commissioner of KVS has passed the following decision with respect to the joining time allotted to the selected candidates and sent a notice to all deputy commissioners of all regions.
As the lockdown has been continuously extended since March 21st and it been over two months still the lockdown exists. The government is applying all possible measures to bring the situation in control and due to the same reason public transportation is hampered since 21st March 2020. Various employees were allotted their joining dates, however, due to lockdown, they failed to join the place of posting and so is with the selected KVS employees.
The notice mentioned that Deputy Commissioner is authorized to grant a month extension in the joining date after the lockdown ends and till the public transportation begins to function normally. As the entire nation is going through a COVID-19 lockdown and moving from one state to another is quite difficult and risky these days.
