Teachers can’t be compelled to work for 6th Economic Census: High Court

Ruling that teachers cannot be compelled to work as supervisors in the Sixth Economic Census,the Bombay High Court has struck down a show-cause notice issued to a school teacher for refusing to perform such duty.

Ruling that teachers cannot be compelled to work as supervisors in the Sixth Economic Census,the Bombay High Court has struck down a show-cause notice issued to a school teacher for refusing to perform such duty. The judgement was delivered by Justices A S Oka and Revati Mohite Dhere recently on a petition filed by Ramnath Mote,a teacher employed with a school in Bhiwandi,who had challenged the show-cause notice issued to him by the Joint Census Commissioner. “It cannot be disputed that the work of Sixth Economic Census (financed fully by the Central Government) has no connection with education,” the judges observed.
