Gujarat School teachers get 20% hike

School teachers of Gujarat have a reason to rejoice. Following a high court order, the state education department has extended a Diwali gift to teachers — a 20 per cent salary hike. 

Recently, Gujarat high court had ruled in favour of school teachers working on fixed salary and had directed state education department to implement Sixth Pay Commission`s recommendations. The state government had quickly formalised Govt resolution (GR) for most departments but that for school teachers was pending. On Monday, the state government issued a GR which will translate into a financial gain of Rs 18,000 to Rs 24,000 for fixed-pay teachers. More than 20,000 school teachers, administrative staff and grade IV employees are likely to gain from this move. 

Ramesh Patel, Gujarat State Secondary Teachers' Federation, general secretary said, "This has been a long-pending demand." Apart from this, primary teachers with fixed pay of Rs 2,500 will get Rs 4,500. More than 15,000 primary teachers will benefit from this.
