Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Apr 11: Sampooran Kashmiri Sangthan (SKS) in its meeting at Union capital today expressed its satisfaction over the decision of Delhi Government to enhance the salaries of migrant teachers working in various schools of Delhi Government from Rs 32,000 to 45,000 and termed it a victory of the struggle launched by the organization and the migrant teachers of Delhi NCR.
A handout issued by SKS president said that the organization which met under the chairmanship of Anoop Kaul while expressing its satisfaction over the decision was hopeful that the other genuine demands of the migrant teachers will also be conceeded by the Government. It said one month earlier its delegation had met the Chief Secretary, Delhi Government along with the representatives of migrant teachers regarding the issue.
The meeting said that at that time the CS had assured that the salaries of migrant teachers will be enhanced as they were getting a paltry pay while performing the same duties which the other teachers of the Delhi Government were performing.
The migrant teachers are on the roll of Delhi Government for a long time and they were getting less wages in comparison to other teachers when the nature of job is the same.
The SKS delegation later had met the Divisional Commissioner, Delhi and discussed the issue with him also. The migrants case was pending for last over two decades. The meeting said the assurance of CS has ultimately turned into the result.
The meeting was also attended by Bharat Kachroo and other leaders of the SKS.
