In a New Year gift to government school teachers, the UP government has cleared way for their promotions, almost after a decade. This comes after Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath directed all departments to complete the pending promotions of employees in all government departments. Around 60,000 teachers will be benefited with the order.
Teachers working in government-run primary and upper primary schools functioning under the Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Council have been waiting for their turn even after a decade. The basic education department teachers were last promoted in 2015. At that time, the teachers appointed till February 2009 had got the benefit.
According to an order issued by special secretary, basic education Awadesh Kumar Tiwari, the government had received a proposal for the promotions from the director general school education. In this regard, it is directed to begin the process of promotions as per the existing rules.
Director general school education Vijay Kiran Anand said: “Each district education officer will display seniority list and invite claims and objections and ensure promotions from primary head teacher to upper primary assistant teacher and primary assistant teacher to primary head teacher in a transparent manner. Substantial number of teachers will benefit out of this.”
As per the rulebook, teachers should be promoted after three years of their appointment. Going by this, teachers appointed after February 2009 should have been promoted in 2012.
“Due to lack of promotion, thousands of teachers are losing on an average Rs 2,500 to Rs 3,000 every month. Also, most of these schools are functioning under a headmaster in-charge instead of a regular headmaster,” said an affected head teacher.
A state office bearer of the UP Junior High School Teachers’ Association, Sanjay Kannaujiya said: “There are pending litigations in the Allahabad High Court. Till a final verdict comes, the government should give monetary benefit to in-charge teachers in upper primary schools.”
Presently, there are 1.9 crore students studying in 1.3 lakh government primary and upper primary schools spread across 75 districts of the state.
Over 5 lakh teachers are employed in these schools.
