Teach­ers’ body moves HC, seeks min­i­mum ₹17,000 salary for TGTs

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - - Metro -

A teach­ers’ body moved the Delhi High Court on Wed­nes­day seek­ing di­rec­tion to the city gov­ern­ment to grant min­i­mum pay of over Rs 17,000 to all trained grad­u­ate teach­ers (TGT) in gov­ern­ment schools as per the 6th pay com­mis­sion rec­om­men­da­tions.

The court asked the Delhi gov­ern­ment coun­sel to take in­struc­tions on the mat­ter and in­form it be­fore Jan­uary 17 next year.

The pe­ti­tion filed by teach­ers’ body, Ad­hya­pak Shakti Manch, said the TGTs are en­ti­tled to a min­i­mum pay of ₹17,140 but the gov­ern­ment has in­ter­preted the sched­ule of pay-fix­a­tion rules, 2008, to mean that those teach­ers who were ap­pointed on or af­ter Jan­uary 1, 2006 were en­ti­tled to this pay. It said the Delhi gov­ern­ment’s DoE has not granted the min­i­mum pay of ₹17,140 to all TGTs as on Jan­uary 1, 2006 as per the rec­om­men­da­tions of the pay panel.
