Jobless 10+2 contractual lecturers have nowhere to go
2/21/2022 11:53:11 PM


JAMMU, Feb 21: More than a thousand 10+2 Contractual Lecturers, who served for several years at various Higher Secondary Schools, were abruptly disengaged a few years ago while with the passage of time they are on the verge of getting over aged.
Now, in their late twenties and thirties, they are jobless and have nowhere to go.
Seeking absorption and regularization of their services, 10+2 Contractual Lecturers alleged that the government has turned a blind eye towards their demands even as many of them have completed 10 to 15 years in service in the Education Department.
They claimed that the Government has not recognized their work and instead harassment is meted out to the contractual lecturers who have rendered their services in the Education Department.
“We served the department with utmost dedication for several years yet all of us are facing mental harassment after the government turned its back towards them,” said a few Contractual Lecturers while speaking to Early Times.
One of the female Contractual Lecturers said that they are demanding their regularization as per the Civil Services Special Provision Act 2010, a legislature passed for the regularization of all the ad-hoc, contractual or consolidated employees on completion of seven years of their service.
She appealed to the government to be considerate towards contractual lecturers, most of who are on the threshold of attaining upper age limit for a government job and concede their genuine demand of regularization as per Civil Services Special Provision Act 2010, as it has already been done in several departments including Health and Forest.
She said that 10+2 contractual lecturers hoped for regularization of their jobs and an end to their years of struggle. But when they returned to schools after months of lockdown, they were told they stand disengaged.
Since then, the future of more than 1500 highly qualified candidates, most of whom have completed 10-15 years of service in the Education Department, is uncertain, she added.
She requested the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha to frame a policy for the absorption of Contractual Lecturers who have given their precious time by serving in government schools otherwise there is no other option for them other than to come on streets.
“I urge LG Sahib not to play with the lives of youth and devise a mechanism for our absorption so that we are not forced to hit the streets with renewed protests. It is not that we are sleeping. We are almost dead already and we will create history by dying on roads,”
Over the years successive governments have failed to devise a policy to regularize the candidates, most of whom are highly qualified, besides having decades of teaching experience.
