Puducherry Govt. School teachers want early implementation.

Teachers in government schools here are up in arms against the administration for the `delay in enforcing the report of the Sixth Pay Commission` to pay increased pay and allowances to them. Puducherry is perhaps the only State in the country where Teachers Day (September 5)highlighting the birth anniversary of former President Dr S.Radhakrishnan) is yet to be celebrated this year.

As there was virtual delay in finalising the portfolios for the new incumbents of the six member congress ministry headed by V.Vaithilingam which was sworn in on September 4 the administration put off the Teachers Day celebration without announcing fresh dates.

An attempt was made to hold it yesterday and again it was put off without finalising the fresh date. Associations of Teachers had gone on record stating that they would hold picketing and intensify their stir if the celebration was held without implementing the report of the Sixth Pay Commission for them.

Teachers of all categories in government schools had Resorted to sit in yesterday and have also planned to hold a fast on October 15 after taking a mass leave to urge the administration to implement the pay commission report.

Official sources pointed out that the plea of the teachers to extend them the benefit of Assured Carrier Progression for senior teachers would have to be met first and once this was finalised the new pay scales would be available to them.

Also around 1400 teachers who come under the category of `directly recruited trained graduate teachers` in government schools also want immediate implementation of new pay scales. When the government staff had received enhanced pay scales, teachers were paid only the "salaries under old system as the pay commission report was kept out of bounds" for them which they said was `unjustified and discriminatory` - Agencies
