Dimapur, Nov. 8 (EMN): Members of the 2010 and 2013 batch of Nagaland Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers’ Association (NSSATA) are insisting that the government keep its word viz. and ‘agreement’ that was made with the government concerning disbursal of the teachers’ salary.
Interestingly, the organisation disclosed that the ‘sanctioned salary bill’ for three months had been at the directorate of School Education since October 27 2018.
The group issued a press release on Thursday stating that it was ‘patiently waiting’ for a solution from the government of Nagaland.
The statement read: ‘The Nagaland Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers’ Association (NSSATA) 2010 and 2013 batch, as per the agreement made with the government of Nagaland in the presence of the Naga Students’ Federation and the Eastern Naga Students’ Federation, on the 12th of June 2018 is patiently waiting for a positive and a permanent solution to end the grievances which the teachers have been facing since the time of appointment.’
According to the organisation, the agreement included finding a mechanism ‘for timely release of salaries.’ Besides, it stated, the association had assisted the directorate for 24 days on the request of the department, ‘right after discharging our school duties on weekdays as well as relinquishing our holidays on non working days to speed up the process for the implementation of 7th ROP and timely release of the salaries.’
In spite of all these, the press release stated, the teachers have not been paid for five months i.e., June to October 2018.
‘Therefore, the NSSATA appeals to the government of Nagaland to release the five months pending salary at the earliest. The teachers have been discharging their duties sincerely even though salaries are not being paid and the inability of the government to release the salaries on time is relieving the teachers of their justified entitlement.’
The organisation disclosed that the ‘sanctioned salary bill’ for three months had been at the directorate of School Education.
‘The sanctioned salary bill for three months i.e., June to August 2018 has been at the directorate of School Education since 27th of October 2018,’ the press release stated. The association has requested the department to release the salaries at the earliest ‘for the sake of the teachers.’
That said, the NSSATA ‘acknowledged’ the government of Nagaland for taking the decision to bring the SSA and RMSA teachers of 2010 and 2013 “into the mainstream of the School Education cadre.”
‘This decision has brought much relief to the teachers and the association implores the department to initiate the matter with utmost priority,’ the group added.
