7 Jun 2015
CHANDIGARH: The Haryana government plans to give 10% allowance in addition to their salary to teachers working in difficult areas such as Mewat and Shivalik regions, education minister Ram Bilas Sharma said.
The minister said he had held a meeting with chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on the transfer policy for teachers. He said the draft was almost ready and the policy would soon be finalised after consulting the teachers’ bodies. Sharma said the policy would have the special incentive of 10% allowance for teachers working in difficult areas in addition to their salary so as to give them the incentive as teaching in these areas was difficult due to geographical and other reasons. “That’s why a few teachers opt for these stations,” he said. Sharma said a seventier transfer policy would be announced soon. Responding to a query on computer teachers, Sharma said they had been paid `71 crore and the remaining dues would be given to them by June.
