SSA teachers to get salaries soon: Minister 

Jammu, Jan 10: The Minister for Education Naeem Akhtar today said that regularization of KGBVs (ReTs) has already been ordered by the Government and Directors of School Education have been asked to make necessary adjustments of the regularized KGBV teachers against available posts.

The Minister was replying to a question by MLA Ranbir Singh Pathania.

Akther also informed that non-disbursement of salaries to the teaching staff under SSA is due to less receipt of funds by Government of India (GoI) against approved allocation and the matter has been taken up with GoI for early release of due installment of funds to the tune of Rs 928 crore. The outstanding salaries to SSA teachers shall be released as soon as the funds are received, he added.
