J&K Teachers’ Forum today said the SSA Head Teachers were without salaries for months altogether for none of their fault.
In a statement here today the JKTF said: “They (SSA Head Teachers) were first appointed as teachers then promoted as masters/head teachers and posted in SSA schools. Little did they know that their posting in SSA schools will invite a host of problems for them in future.” The statement said: “These teachers have raised loans and are unable to pay the interest component, leave alone the principle due to non-release of their salaries.”
The JKTF said the government on umpteen occasions came up with assurances about their placement on substantive posts and regulation of their salary, “but till date the assurances have proved to be a mere time buying exercise.”
The JKTF appealed to the government to addresses the issue without any further delay and place these teachers on substantive posts and clear their pending liabilities.
