Can an Asst Headmistress abstain herself from taking charges from the Head Mistress before her retirement, on health ground? Of course, it's common for an AHM to act as TIC until the appointment of new HM . But on health and other reasons AHM may not be willing to accept the charges. However, she may like continue with AHM till retirement. Can someone point out any GO/notification/memo in this regard? It would be extremely helpful. Many thanks in advance.
