ANGCTA raises contract teachers’ plight

DIMAPUR, SEP 27 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/27/2019 11:13:45 AM IST

All Nagaland Government College Teachers Association (ANGCTA) has expressed serious concern over the problems faced by contract teachers and urged the competent authority to act on the matter soon.

In a press release, ANGCTA president Lily Angami and general secretary, Dr. Kekhrieseno Christina said that vast majority of the contract teachers were also NET qualified and have fulfilled other pre requisite criteria specified by UGC.
Further, ANGCTA stated that some contract teachers were already over aged while rendering their best services. The association noted that the newly introduced disciplines in the colleges were mostly manned by contract teachers fulfilling all UGC criteria. It said they have been rendering commendable selfless effort for years together. ANGCTA maintained that many have appeared in the interviews conducted by the department and the best were selected. 
Pointing out UGC regulation demands for equal pay for equal work, the association said the contract teachers work under the same pressure and constraints as any other colleague, but paid meagerly. 
“We cannot let their plight continue and their services go unrecognized,” ANGCTA asserted.
The association has, therefore, expressed the belief that it was very crucial for the competent authority to act on the matter as early and should frame certain mechanism to redress the grave issues and accommodate the members.
Meanwhile, ANGCTA has affirmed its stand for direct recruitment through NPSC. 
The association, however, stated that it cannot exercise restraint and be numb to the discrepancies and anomalies in the department. Seeking justice and an early solution to the existing situation, the association has strongly appealed to the responsible authority not to give further appointments on contract. It also suggested that any situation arising out of vacancy and the urgency for faculty, a system of adjustment by guest teachers on some fixed honorarium may be applied.
Extending solidarity and support for the cause of members who have been serving as contract teachers for the past many years, the ANGCTA has demanded immediate intervention of the government so as to avoid any misunderstanding and untoward incidences in future.
