State Times News JAMMU: To discuss various issues confronting Plus-2 cadre, the All J&K Plus Two Lecturers’ Forum convened a meeting on Sunday, through teleconferencing, under the leadership of its President, Deepak Sharma. Besides highlighting numerous other demands, the Forum demanded repatriation of all J&K Government employees from Ladakh region, including those from Education Department, immediately and urged LG for initiating necessary measures in this regard. Speaking on the occasion, Deepak Sharma said that a large number of lecturers and other employees of Education Department from UT of J&K are serving in Ladakh region and have not been transferred back to their respective home districts even after completion of stipulated period of one year in hard areas. He further said that even option was sought from J&K Government employees to choose between two UTs, viz J&K and Ladakh, after bifurcation of J&K State but no exercise has been done on ground level in this regard to provide a sigh of relief to employees. It is pertinent to mention that Forum had raised the issue earlier also but no respite was given to J&K employees working in Ladakh. Initially, Ladakh requires hand-holding but now it can self sustain, said Deepak, urging Lieutenant Governor J&K UT, G C Murmu for his personal intervention in the matter for immediate repatriation of all J&K Government employees in general and Education employees in particular, right from lecturers to CEOs including those recruited under SRO-202 back to their home districts in J&K, as Ladakh is no more a part of J&K. As such, J&K government employees deputed there should not be made to languish in harsh weather conditions, he added. The forum further hoped that burning issues and grievances of 10+2 cadre like Assured Career progression (ACP)/ Time Bound Promotion and Induction Quota into KAS in favour of Plus-2 lecturers, till Education Administrative Service (EAS) is constituted from Academicians/officers drawn from them School Education Department, would be resolved by Principal Secretary Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon on priority and regularisation orders of all incharge incumbents/ retirees will also be issued at the earliest. Others demands included placement of lectures as Senior lecturers, removal of pay anomalies of principals and senior officers and non-vacational status to Principals/ Head of Schools, provision of Charge Allowance in all promotions/placements, restoration of 40 per cent college quota, provision of earned leave to teaching community, regularisation of Physical Education lecturers and removal of their pay anomaly etc. Those who attended the meeting included N S Jamwal, R S Slathia, Dr Sushma, Anil Sharma, Sanjay Bhagat, Pradeep Singh, Anwar Khan, Ashok Sharma, Jatinder Sethi, Fazal Hussain, Anis Ahmed, Imtiaz Qazmi, A R Giri and Ramesh Thakur.
