Posts vacant but govt in no hurry to appoint teachers

Around 1,000 vacancies for post graduate teachers [PGT] and trained graduate teachers [TGT] in schools of New Delhi are lying vacant, and the government has turned a blind eye on the permanent recruitment.

A teacher, who requested anonymity, from R K Government Sarvodaya Balvidhyalya, Madan Pur Khadar, said, ‘There are 24 vacancies in our school but the government is not in the mood to recruit people. There has been no appointment for the last three years.’ He added, ‘Most schools received circulars from the Director of Education with regard to guest teachers, instead of making permanent appointments.’

A guest teacher, who did not wish to be named, said, ‘For the last several years, we have been struggling for our rights. There is no incentive, no arrears and our remuneration is less than that of a peon of the school.’

A government official, on the other hand, said, ‘Recruitment would be done on the instructions of the Directorate of School Education and the information regarding the temporary appointments can be downloaded by 10 October.’

According to Directorate of Education, before appointing teachers, the government will look at the academic ability of the applicant. PGT teachers will be given Rs 150 per period and Rs 18,000 per month, TGT teachers will be given Rs 120 per period and Rs 15,000 per month. Rs 9,500 will be given to assistants of teachers.
