UDHAMPUR, Aug 2: A virtual meeting of Jammu Kashmir Teachers’ Joint Action Committee (JKTJAC) was held at Udhampur under the leadership of UT President Vinod Sharma and District President Udhampur Lekh Raj Parihar.
The meeting was attended by the Forum representatives from all the eleven zones of the district for raising burning issues of the teachers.
While speaking on the occasion, Vinod Sharma raised the issue of conversion of left out RRETs to Teachers Grade II /III, who are suffering badly. He also sought the regularisation of ReTs whose files are lying in various offices including zonal, CEO and Directorates as there are some cases due since 2018 and these teachers are suffering badly. He also sought the implementation of comprehensive transfer policy in favour of 3rd Teachers, Teachers Grade II and Teachers Grade III as they are working in the same schools for last 15 to 20 years and this stagnation at the same place is pushing them into mental trauma. He also raised the issue of conversion of Head teachers (SSA) posts to non plan master posts and demanded the DPC of Teachers to Masters in the whole UT.
He appealed Principal Secretary School Education, Directors School Education Jammu /Kashmir to resolve all these issues of the teachers so that they may not suffer any more.
Lekh Raj Parihar raised the issue of non payment of MDM dues in some zones of District Udhampur for the year 2019 which the teachers have managed from their own pockets. He appealed CEO Udhampur to personally intervene in this regard so that previous year liability under MDM be cleared. He also sought the attention of worthy CEO Udhampur for release of the advance salary for the month of July on the festivals of Eid and Rakshabandhan as ZEOs have failed to release the same due to their negligence.
