Fund crunch leaves deficit teachers without salary
SHILLONG: The President of Khasi Jaintia Deficit School Teachers Association (KJDSTA), Kular Khongjirem, on Friday lamented that despite the state government issuing the sanction orders, the Treasury branch has not released the salary due to non availability of funds.
“How can the government issue sanction order to all schools without having funds?” he questioned, while stressing on release of the second installment of the pending revised pay before Christmas.
He stated that the sanction order was issued by the Director of School Education and Literacy (DSEL) to all DSEOs for release of the salary for the months September to November, 2019 but no fund was available.
Speaking as the chief guest during the 29th annual conference of Garo Hills Deficit School Teachers and Employees Association, Phulbari MLA SG Esmatur Mominin assured that he would take up the issue with Chief Minister Conrad Sangma.
Mominin said that the state government should fulfill the genuine demands of the deficit teachers of the state. ED Nongsiang urged the state government to provide post-retirement benefits to all deficit teachers of the state.
