Reasi, Jan 4: A delegation of All Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh Teachers Federation today called on DC Reasi and apprised him about their many problems. The main issues discussed with the Director School Education Jammu were related to salary of Masters working under SSA/RMSA schemes in the district.
They said that they had not been paid their salary since August 2018 upto date and facing many hardships .They are not able to serve bread and butter to their children and to pay their School/College fees. They said that they are at the verge of starvation and under depression.
They said that the previous Director School Education ordered withdrawal of salary of Masters working under SSA/ RMSA schemes from vacant non-plan posts in the District so that they receive their salary in time.
But the new Director School Education kept that order withheld which led to discontent and disappointment among the Masters. The Deputy Commissioner Reasi gave a patient hearing and telephonically talked with the Director School Education Jammu over the issue and also assured the deputation that he will personally look into the whole matter and will do the needful.
