Contractual lecturers, teachers betrayed by BJP govt: Harsh
8/13/2020 10:40:51 PM

JAMMU, Aug 13: Castigating the J&K administration for paying no heed to the grievances of contractual Lecturers and Teaching Assistants engaged in Higher Education department, Harsh Dev Singh sought enhancement of salary and regularization of services in their favour without any further delay.
“The government has been treating the educated youth like disposables by divesting them of their due honorarium as well as regularization benefits in the employment. They continue to face govt apathy despite repeated assurances absorption in regular establishment with none to listen to their woes”, rued Harsh. Similar was the plight of contractual teachers who were thrown out by the govt in the most contemptuous manner after utilizing their services for several years in staff deficient schools. The maltreatment of educated youth was totally unacceptable and would fought tooth and nail, asserted Singh. He was addressing a press conference in Jammu today.
Expressing solidarity with nearly 2300 lecturers engaged as Academic Arrangement and Teaching Assistants in the Degree colleges all across UT of J&K, Harsh Dev Singh regretted that such highly qualified and experienced incumbents including PhDs, M. Phils, NET/ SLET and Post Graduates were being paid Rs 28,000 per month and Rs 22000 per month respectively.
He said that they were treated like bonded labourers whose honorarium was grossly meagre in proportion to the quantum of work assigned to them.
He further disclosed that vide Govt order No. PS/Adv(S)/ 2020/82 dated 29.07.2020, the Advisor to Lt. Governor holding the charge of Higher Education had directed the Commissioner/ Secretary to the Government to submit a proposal to increase the retirement age of the College teachers from 60 to 62 in view of the massive shortage of the faculty in degree colleges. He wondered that in the wake of scarcity of the faculty why the Government had been averse to the contractual Lecturers and Teaching Assistants.
Seeking a thorough review of the plight of teaching fraternity, Harsh Dev Singh sought personal intervention of the Lt Governor to take serious cognizance of their genuine demands pertaining to enhancement of salary and regularization of their services at the earliest in the ultimate interests of educational institutions in J&K. He brought to the notice of the LG that the proposal of age enhancement of permanent faculty would involve Rs 15 crores annually for 50 retirees only whereas, if a job policy was framed then more than 200 Lecturers/ Teaching Assistants could be regularized every year without any financial implications.
