All Nagaland School Teachers’ Association (ANSTA), Dimapur district has appealed to the government to release the salaries for the month of January.
In a press note issued by P. Vashum, president ANSTA stated that every month’s salary was supposed to be paid on the last day of the month or the first working day of the following month. However, the union lamented that the practice was not followed. ANSTA further stated that the delay has caused many problems resulting in non-payment of school or admission fees and purchase of books for their children.
Meanwhile, the teachers have also expressed anguish at being “discriminated” as their counterparts from other districts have already received their salaries.
