State Times News UDHAMPUR: J&K ReT Teachers Forum (ReTTF) on Sunday threatened to boycott election duties, if recommendations of 7th Pay Commission are not implemented in their favour. In the meeting held here at Bhagat Singh Park, Bhupinder Singh, Senior Vice Chairman criticized the authorities concerned for not implementing recommendations of 7th Pay Commission in favour of under-graduate teachers besides not starting regularisation process till date, files of which are lying in the directorate office awaiting action. Governor’s administration had assured to release salary for the month of September 2018 as per 7th Pay Commission in favour of all teachers but instead of giving salary of September, the Administration divided the teaching community in two categories viz graduate and under-graduate. More than 7000 teachers are under-graduate and were deprived of the implementation of 7th Pay Commission till time, asserted Singh, adding that at the time of appointment, minimum educational qualification fixed for the post was 12th. State Coordinator, Pritam Dhimaan alleged that Government is playing games with teaching community. ReT Teachers Forum urged the Government to fulfill all genuine demands of teachers including implementation of 7th Pay Commission in favour of all SSA teachers from January 2016, releasing pending salary from September 2018 with 7th Pay commission in favour of (Graduate and Under-graduate) teachers, starting regularisation process etc failing which they would be left with no other option than to protest on roads for their rights. They also threatened to boycott election duties in their demands were not considered at the earliest. Those present in the protest included Kuldeep Katoach, Mosum ul Haq, Parbhat Singh, Surinder Khajuria, Ravikant Sharma, Surjeet Singh, Akram Kainth, Sanjay Kumar, Sanjeev Sharma, Sachin Sharma, Inderjeet Singh, Sukdev Singh, Bharat Bushan, Varinder Partap and Mohan Lal.
