More than 500 teachers from nearby districts including Udaipur conducted a mass rally and demonstrated outside the Collector’s office today morning demanding various claims including a proper job chart, considerable salary and denounced the recruitment policy of computer teachers serving in Government schools of Udaipur region.
The rally was led under the banner of Rajasthan Computer Teachers Association, Udaipur Branch.
According to computer teachers, they are given jobs through private companies who take the contract as per ICT program and pay Rs. 1800 to Rs. 2500 per month to teachers and this not in accordance with the norms. Moreover, the salaries are also not paid on time.
Dileep Nagda, Regional President of Computer Teachers Association said, “There is no specific job chart due to which the teachers are often been asked to do other works which do not fall under their expertise.” They demanded to get specific job proposal that must mention their job profile and work.
The rally started from Town Hall and concluded at the Collector’s office where they presented a memorandum to the Collector in the name of Rajasthan Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot.
According to the information provided, nearly 4500 computer teachers have stopped working from March 19, 2012 but no serious positive step has been taken by the State Government yet.
Dilip also informed, “This Job Boycott will continue till our demands are not fulfilled, we are giving services from past 12 years but we are still not permanent staff in the education sector. Though government is investing in education sector but at the same time it is exploiting computer teaching staff and thus overlooking the orders of High Court.”
