In the districts of Ambala and kurukshetra ,60 posts of principal in government schools are lying vacant.

As per the sources, out of 93 sanctioned posts, 35 are vacant in Ambala while 25 of 73 posts are yet to be filled in Kurukshetra.

As per Balram Sharma, the president of the Haryana School Lecturers’ Association, Kurukshetra, “In the absence of a permanent principal, the senior-most lecturer is given the DD (drawing disbursing) power to manage the school. But only a regular principal can lead the team efficiently and can chalk out a strategy to improve students’ strength and resolve other issues.”

Additionally, Ramakant, president of the association’s Ambala unit, said, “Senior-most teachers, who have been given additional charge of principal, have to look after administrative work due to which they don’t get much time to pay attention to their own subjects. There are 27 senior-most lecturers in Ambala who are yet to be promoted. However, the court, in its recent order, allowed the state to promote lecturers with the condition that any promotion made will be subject to the final outcome of the seniority dispute. Efforts are being made to get the seniority list corrected.”
