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

It cannot be disputed that the work of Sixth Economic Census has no connection with education.

Ruling that teachers cannot be compelled to work as supervisors in the Sixth Economic Census,the Bombay HC struck down a showcause notice issued to a 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 at a school in Bhiwandi,who had challenged the notice issued to him by the Joint Census Commissioner. “It cannot be disputed that the work of Sixth Economic Census has no connection with education,” HC said.
