Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 28: The 'Skill India' scheme in J&K is on verge of closure as the Directorate of Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) has failed to release six month salary of around 700 Vocational Trainers (VTs), despite sanctioned funds of current fiscal year by union government.
Pleading anonymity, a Vocational Trainer informed Early Times that the (VTs) are working under various Vocational Trainers Partners (VTPs) but the directorate of Samagra vide letter No. Edu/SPD?SS/VE/294-305/18 Dated July10,2018 had discontinued the services of VTPs. However, it was also stated in said order that all Vocational Trainers and Vocational Coordinators would continue to serve under directorate till the current academic session.
"Although they have not defined the duration or the end date of the current academic session, it is assumed that the current academic session would mean up to March 31, 2019", Vocational Trainers said, adding that the VTPs paid Vocational Trainers, Coordinators salaries up to July 2018 and directed all us (VTs and Coordinators) that their further salary will be released from Directorate Samagra.
After lapse of two month VTPs services discontinued the Vocational Trainers approach State Project Director Samagra regarding release of salary. The director said that Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) yet not releases funds also suggests us if you have any other option to quit the job, otherwise wait release of funds.
They further said that we (VTs) also approach MHRD Joint Director regarding release of funds, the Joint -Director replied that for this scheme Government of India already release funds to Jammu and Kashmir government of financial year 2018-19, so contact the officials of state government.
They alleged that the private companies (VTPs) released our salary after long intervals thereby making us to suffer. But in current scenario is in such a worst condition, we (VTs) haven't received the salaries since July 2018 and also not paid the previous dues such as industrial visits and guest lecture expenditure by Directorate Samagra.
We VTs are not adher the labour laws, company act and therefore any benefits of ESIC, EPF, etc. The directorate have never ever given any clear picture of the current scenario and put us in a situation of confusion and chaos. It seems the official doesn't seem interested in resolving the problems of Vocational trainer.
Most of the VTs working are on the verge of attaining the upper age limit and there is no job security n the scheme leading to frustration. They appeal Governor SP Malik to mechanism job security for Vocational Trainer working in different government run schools across state and also directed SPD Samagra to release pending salary of VT, coordinators immediately.
