JAMMU, Feb 5: All Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh Teachers Federation has opposed increase in examination fee of the lower standard students and setting up exam centres at distant places.
The concern was expressed during a meeting of the Federation, held here today at Bhalwal, under the chairmanship of Anil Sharma, zonal president.
The Federation observed that imposing heavy examination fee on students, particularly girl students and those belonging to BPL class, was against the Government’s mission of providing free education.
Further, the meet added, the establishment of examination centres at far flung areas, where the students have to walk about 5 kilometers, will create more hurdles for the small kids and again this is against the PM’s slogan of Beti Padao Beti Bachao’.
During the meet, Federation also highlighted some other issues, such as release of pending salary under SSA, RMSA, MPS Schemes, GPF statement, verification of service book statements, etc.
The meeting was attended by Jeeva Kant, Suresh Sawhney, Ajay Dogra, Kuldeep Singh, Prithvi Raj, Pritam Chand, Vikas Sharma, Rakesh Salaria, Kamal Kishore, Raj Salotra, Purshotam, Showkat and others.
