Srinagar, Dec, 23:- A high level delegation of Jammu Kashmir Teachers Forum met Divisional Commissioner Kashmir at Srinagar. The delegation comprising of UT Chief Spokesperson Bhat Javaid, Provincial President Kashmir Mohammad Akbar Dar, UT advisor Ghulam Nabi Kralpori, Press & Publicity Secretary Sameer Fida Hussain, Provincial Secretary Abdul Qayoom Mir, DP Bandipora Fayaz Ahmad Malik, DP Baramulla Zahoor Ahmad Malla & DP Srinagar Ayaaz Ahmad Bhat presented a 18 point memorandum to the worthy officer. While presenting the memorandum to Divisional Commissioner P.K Pole, Bhat Javaid the Chief Spokesperson of the forum requested the officer to use his good office for the resolution of the demands raised in the memorandum. Worthy Divisional Commissioner gave a patient hearing to the delegation and assured them that he will strongly advocate the issues raised by the forum with the concerned quarters. The main issues that were raised in the memorandum included:-


1) Infrastructure upgradation/augmentation needs to be undertaken on priority basis. Questions are being raised on the infrastructural deficit in our Schools. In order to achieve optimum success, the exercise needs to be kick started sooner than later.

2) The departmental Promotion from teacher to master has been halted since 2014 for unknown reasons. In the absence of well-defined career progression avenues, teachers are feeling dejected. DPC’s for the promotion of teacher to master should be held without any further delay.

3) The much hyped Annual Transfer Drive (ATD) which remained in the headlines from the last one year should be implemented now. The discrepancies should be eliminated and teachers posted in hard zones should be transferred to soft zones.

4) Framing of a comprehensive transfer policy for Grade II & Grade III teachers which again has been a persistent demand of Teachers Forum.

5) Identification of substantive posts for Grade II & Grade III teachers and shifting the left out teachers from supernumerary to substantive posts.

6) Abolition of incharge & Look after system which has already become a new nuisance in the department. The confirmation of all the look after and incharge cadre should be done promptly.

7) Scrapping of New Pension Scheme & bringing all the employees recruited on or after 01/01/2010 under the ambit of Old Pension Scheme.

8) The regional disparity in the look after list of headmasters needs to be removed. It is pertinent to mention here that the Department of School Education issued a look-after list of headmasters wherein only 438 masters from Kashmir region were given the look-after charge as against 568 masters from Jammu region. Additionally, masters of Jammu region promoted up to 2009 have been considered whereas their counterparts from Kashmir promoted beyond 2006 have been ignored.

9) Filling up the vacancy of J.D North besides the vacancies of C.E.O’s, D.E.P.O’s, DIET Principals, DIET H.O.D’s, Principals, Z.E.O’s, Z.E.P.O’s, Headmasters, Non-teaching and other allied staff.

10) Resolution of regularization, time-bound promotion and other issues of Grade II, Grade III, 3rd RRT’s and Unregularized R.T’s.

11) Resumption of In-situ Promotion of Reduced R.e.T’s.

12) Adjustment of all the promoted headmasters & Lecturers.

13) Bringing the teachers of JKUT at par with other UT’s of the country in terms of salary, allowances, grade and other emoluments.

14) Inclusion of service rendered by migrant substitute employees’ working in School Education Department in their service records.

15) Removal of pay disparity of masters in the pre-revised pay grade of 6500-10500.

16} Implementation of Minimum Wages Act for Consolidated Paid Workers (C.P.W’s), MDM cooks, Land donors, Chowkidars et al working in Education Department.
