Punjab Board officials lend ear to teachers’ grievances

Mohali, September 12
In a move to settle the grievances of Punjab teachers, who have gone into litigations against the Education Department, Punjab Govt or the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB), the authorities today summoned 104 teachers at the PSEB office here to hear their grievances.
The move was an attempt to lessen the number of litigations filed against the department by the teaching staff.
Husan Lal, secretary, education and chairman of the PSEB, said he settled disputes with 104 teachers from across the state today.
“The teachers have approached the court on issues like anomalies, seniority, promotion, pay and retirement benefits. Several have also challenged the recruitment process of 2006, 2010 and 2011. Out of the total cases, 52 were contempt cases in which we could not comply with the courts’ directions. So I decided to call the teachers and address their grievances,” said Husan Lal, adding that most of the cases were redressed today.
“Now we are going to streamline the system by setting up a legal cell for the purpose. We are going to appoint an Officer on Special Duty (Litigations) who would look after all such issues to avoid legal complications,” said Husan Lal.
He also said from now onwards he would start hearing teachers’ grievances every fortnight. There are over 1.25 lakh government teachers in the state. The number of court cases against the Education Department or the PSEB is said to be over 3000.
