Gurgaon: The state government has finally released funds of Rs 10.3 crore for Nuh’s model schools and directed the education department and the district administration to pay pending salaries and other dues of more than 350 teaching and non-teaching staff.
“The salaries had been held up due to the second wave of Covid and fund crunch. But now, the government has announced that the staff should be paid before Diwali so that they can have a joyous festival season,” said a senior education department official.
The teachers welcomed the move, calling it “nothing less than a victory”.
“We have been fighting for our rights relentlessly and it took almost a year for the government to address our concerns. But this is still half the work done. We are yet to get salaries for September and October. Also, other funds are pending. We urge the government to release those as well,” said Satish Khatana, district president, Mewat Model School Employees’ Welfare Association.
Teachers had also demanded that the government implements its commitment made in 2016 that all the model schools in the district will be linked with the education department so that teachers and students get benefits like mid-day meals, free books, better pay and employee benefits.
