Tuensang District Adhoc Teachers’ Association (TDATA) has expressed resentment over non regularization and non-implementation of 6th ROP for adhoc teachers.
In an open letter to the Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio, TDATA president Chuba Chang highlighted the plight of adhoc teachers, alleging that they have been discriminated by being denied regularization of their services and non-implementation of the 6th ROP.
TDATA claimed that the relentless efforts and services rendered by teachers towards education in Nagaland should be counted and not be kept in vain.
“The sacrifices made by the teachers for the children ought to be looked after by the government by giving every possible rights to the teachers for the better upliftment of the society,” the letter said.
Alleging that its members have been waiting for years with hope, letting go of every “movement, act and pranks” played upon them by the government, the association asserted that it was time that the government had paid attention to the grievances of adhoc teachers, instead of turning a deaf ear.
The TDATA appealed to the chief minister to bring about justice by considering to regularize adhoc teachers who have completed three years and above of service, without having to undergo any suitability test.
In matters of non-implementation of the 6th ROP for adhoc teachers, TDATA questioned why adhoc teachers should get lesser pay than that of regular teachers when both the categories shared the same workload. Moreover, the association also pointed out that with the implementation of the 6th ROP, the pay of peons and chowkidars have become higher than that of adhoc teachers, which it said, was highly “injustice and objectionable.” In this regard, the association demanded that rights to pay revision be given to adhoc teachers as well.
According to TDATA, adhoc teachers were also entitled to benefits and allowances from the government “from time to time” as per their appointment orders, however, it lamented that “surprisingly it is not so.”
Asserting that the “policy of discrimination and deprivation” should be totally banned, the association urged against “further victimization towards adhoc teachers” and further appealed to the chief minister to allow adhoc teachers the chance “to live freely with equality.”
