NGOs Association changes the Demonstration programme due to Prime Minister's interaction programme on Teachers' Day
The proposed mass demonstration in front of the Directorate of Education on the Teachers’ Day on 5th September, 2014 by the affected categories of teachers and miscellaneous teachers who have been denied the upgraded pay under Part B of the CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, has been postponed in view of the interactive session of the Hon’ble Prime Minister with the students on the said date. The Steering Committee of the affected categories of teachers which met at Port Blair on 2nd September, 2014 has decided to postpone the Mass Demonstration to 9th September, 2014 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
On the implementation of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission, about 850 teachers and miscellaneous teachers like Headmaster, Physical Education Teacher, Librarian, Craft Instructor, Primary School Resource Teacher, Lab Assistants, etc. were denied of the upgraded grade pay under Part B. The above categories of teachers and miscellaneous teachers whose scales of pay were at par with the PGTs, GTTs and PSTs as the case may be, till the implementation of the Sixth Central Pay Commission in 2008, have been denied of the benefit of upgraded Pay under Part B of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 on the plea that the above posts have not been specifically mentioned in the said rules. Since 2008, the Non-Gazetted Govt. Officers’ Association has been pursuing this matter with the A & N Administration and Govt. of India.
