Early Times Report
JAMMU, Mar 3: In a significant gathering held today at Udhampur, the Jammu Kashmir Teachers' Joint Action Committee (JKTJAC) convened its monthly meeting under the leadership of UT President Vinod Sharma and District President Udhampur Lekh Raj Parihar. The assembly, comprising representatives of the JKTJAC, voiced pressing concerns affecting the teaching fraternity, urging swift action from the authorities.
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Vinod Sharma emphasized the imperative release of pending dues for Mid Day Meals throughout the academic year 2023-24. He underscored the hardships faced by teachers who have been compelled to cover these expenses from their own pockets, despite persistent appeals through various media channels.
Furthermore, Mr. Sharma called for the expeditious resolution of numerous lingering issues afflicting teachers, urging the LG administration to prioritize the welfare of thousands of educators across the UT. Among the key demands raised was the implementation of a comprehensive transfer policy for teachers appointed under the ReT scheme, advocating for equitable treatment and relief for those serving in remote areas for extended periods.
The demand for converting headteachers' positions into non-plan posts of masters to address vacancies in middle schools garnered substantial support, alongside appeals for clear directives from the Administrative Department regarding qualification enhancements for teachers and masters.
Additionally, Mr. Sharma urged the Director School Education Jammu to promptly issue regularization orders for ReTs who have completed their five-year tenure, along with the conversion of RRETs to Teachers Grade II/III, addressing longstanding uncertainties within the teaching community.
District President Lekh Raj Parihar echoed similar sentiments, stressing the urgent release of over two years' worth of arrears owed to teachers and masters, acknowledging the significant hardships endured by educators.
The meeting witnessed active participation from various stakeholders including Sukhdev Singh Sumbria, Sham Sharma, Sukesh Khajuria, and several others, collectively emphasizing the critical need for concrete actions to address the challenges faced by the teaching fraternity.
Amidst fervent discussions and impassioned pleas for redressal, the JKTJAC monthly meeting served as a platform for unified advocacy, amplifying the voices of educators and amplifying the urgency for systemic reforms to ensure the well-being and stability of the teaching profession in Jammu and Kashmir.
