The UP government on Wednesday passed an ordinance authorizing the transfer of teaching and non-teaching staff from aided madarsas. Female Madarsa State Council staff will now also be granted maternity and childcare leave.

Denmark’s Minister of State (Minority Welfare) Raza said the decision was taken after holding consultations with staff members and teachers at the madarsas.

“A decree has been issued to transfer teachers/non-teaching staff from assisted madrassas with the approval of the directors of the madrassas and with the approval of the Registrar, UP Madarsa Education Council,” it said in a statement. “Up to now, transfer within the Council was not allowed for teaching and non-teaching staff,” he added.

“The rules of the new order will also allow the dependent of a deceased member of staff to obtain the position in place of the deceased. This will be done after obtaining the consent of the district minority welfare officer or madarsa director. In accordance with the new rules, female employees working in madrasas will be granted maternity leave and childcare leave in light of the rules applicable to the Department of Secondary and Basic Education,” said the minister.
