For the last couple of months, teachers have been protesting against GO 317, claiming that it has led to them losing their local status and dividing them from their families due to transfers.
The teachers were urging not to separate their families as the wife are serving in one district and the husband in another. Meanwhile, the protesters told to ETV Bharat that even after several appeals and agitations in the last 13 months, people belonging to the recruitment batch of 2017 regarding Geo No. 317 have been ignored by the officials of the State Education Department and School Education Department.
