Sarma in state assembly said, “The state government will table a bill whereby once a teacher is appointed in a district, he has to stay for 10 years. There will be no transfer or posting during the period. Anyone recommending or approving such transfer will have to face imprisonment for three years.”

He added, “All transfers made in the last three years will be annulled and those who got transferred will have to go the original place of posting. A committee will be constituted which will look into special cases, like a particular person is Divyangjan or forced to leave a place under duress.”
