Boycotting of M.O.D Duties had begun much earlier in Hyderabad Region

     AINVSA/CEC/2011-12/20                                                                                        Dated 15nd  July,,2011
The Commissioner
Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti
A-28,Kailash Colony, New Delhi-110048
 Sub : Functions of Master On Duty-reg.
In response to the letter F.No2-18/2011-NVS(SA.) dated 11th July, 2011 circulated by NVS HQ in its official website relating to role and functions of Master on Duty (M.O.D) in JNVs with the intention to enforce accountability on teachers we would like to bring the following facts  to your kind  attention:
The MOD duty was introduced in Navodaya Vidyalayas during the period when Vice-Principal posts were not constituted and also when most of the Navodaya Vidyalayas were functioning in temporary buildings with limited infrastructure.  The practice has been continued since then even when regular Vice-Principal is posted in all Vidyalayas and almost all Navodaya Vidyalayas are functioning in permanent buildings with sufficient infrastructure.
The purpose of MOD has become redundant as there are two administrators, Principal and Vice Principal in each Vidyalaya to look after the functioning of the School.  For all other administrative management, various committees such as M&R Committee, CCA Committee, Purchase Committee, Mess Committee, etc. are constituted with teaching staff as its members and that the system functions smoothily and effectively.
     Hence the monitoring of the day to day activities of the Vidyalaya is a sole and whole responsibility of Principal and Vice Principal only and as such there is no need to impose their basic duties and responsibilities upon teachers who are otherwise burdened heavily with other academic and House related work.  There is no justification what so ever to delegate the basic duties and responsibilities of Principal and Vice Principal to the Teachers.  Also it has been a practice of Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti to punish MOD of the day, if any untoward incident happens in the school.  It has been used only as a tool to victimise a teacher in such cases over the years.
            Hence it is requested that MOD duty system may henceforth be scrapped with immediate effect. AINVSA looks forward to a speedy action in this regard, failing which the teachers may be compelled  to boycott MOD Duty from 1st August, 2011.
Thanking You

Yours Faithfully

How to BOYCOTT MOD Duty - Procedure

                                         BOYCOTT PROCEDURE

It seems that there is a good response , and AINVSA has been receiving mob calls about the same. However, we reiterate that AINVSA does not force or compel anyone to do the same. It’s the employee himself/herself who should feel that boycotting or non-cooperation movement should commence in Navodaya Vidyalayas in order to decrease work loads of the employees. It was promised that work hour committee would be formed and work hours decided. But there seems to be no inkling about the same. 
Boycotting M,O.D is the right step to begin with., as it has in a way no connection with the teacher’s duty. Nevertheless, its upon the teacher to decide whether to boycott or not.
The following procedure should be adopted by the Units, if they are deciding of Boycotting M.O.D Duty
1.All the AINVSA Unit are , hereby, requested to conduct a Unit meeting in their respective Vidyalayas on 30 Dec,2013  and take opinions of boycotting of M.O.Ds 
2. They should note down willingness or non willingness of the employee on a piece of paper.
3. AINVSA unit should give an intimation to the Principal and a list of staff boycotting M.O.D Duty ( IntimationProforma enclosed herewith) , or  give individual intimation well in advance , on 30/31 Dec,2013.
4.A photocopy of  any Advisory Note /Memorandum given, in response to this, by the Principals or Regional Office should be collected and sent immediately to the AINVSA CEC by the AINVSA Unit or any individual himself .

                                                  ALL THE BEST!   LONG LIVE AINVSA
