Delhi State Govt teachers call on Dr. Jitendra Singh

A deputation of Delhi State Government Schools Teachers’ Association called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations which, according to them, had been denied in their case.

The deputation led by the Association's President, Shri C.P.Singh and General Secretary Shri Ajay Veer Yadav, submitted a memorandum to the Minister and complained that the teacher community working in the Delhi State Government was going through stress and humiliation because of non-redressal of pay fixation. As a result of this anomaly, some of the juniors were drawing more salary than their seniors which was also injustice to them, they alleged.

Explaining their case, they said that the Central Pay Commission, Rule 7, part ‘A’, clause (i) suggests the formula of 1.86 and rounding of the amount so arrived at the next multiple of 10 and thereafter adding the grade pay accordingly. The second part i.e., Rule 7, part ‘A’, clause (ii) says that if the pay so arrived as per clause (i) is less than the pay of the employee, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum. The Rule 8 of 6th CPC recommendations prescribes the minimum in terms of entry pay to a particular post and in terms of teachers, it has been laid down for different categories namely primary teachers, trained teachers and post-graduate teachers.

In their written request to Dr Jitendra Singh, the teachers sought the intervention by the Government of India’s Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) so that the pay anomaly in their case could be sorted out through a joint reading of Rule 7 part ‘A’ clause (i) and (ii) along with Rule 8 of the 6th Central Pay Commission.

Dr Jitendra Singh gave them a patient hearing and assured the aggrieved teachers that based on the representation made by them, he would get the issue re-examined all over again.
