Delhi to raise retirement age of govt school teachers to 65

The Delhi government is all set to raise the retirement age for teachers of government schools from 62 years to 65 years. A Cabinet note in this regard has already been prepared, and sources in the government said the decision might be given the go-ahead in the next meeting of the Delhi Cabinet.

The move, which will benefit at least 3 lakh teachers, comes just months before the Assembly elections in Delhi. Education Minister Kiran Walia said raising the bar on the retirement age was a long-standing demand of teachers. “This has been a demand from teachers in Delhi for a long time now and I support the move. Increasing the retirement age means more experienced teachers in Delhi schools,” Walia said.

Senior officials in the Delhi government said the files for the process were ready and that the decision to raise the retirement age would possibly be approved in a meeting of the Delhi Cabinet next week. Senior Congress leaders said the decision could benefit the party ahead of the elections, considering the number of teachers in Delhi and the fact that teachers also influenced votes.

Nangloi-Jat MLA Bijendra Singh, on Wednesday, led a delegation of 500 teachers to Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, requesting that the retirement age be raised. “It was a very positive meeting and the CM has assured us that the Delhi government would safeguard the interests of teachers in Delhi,” Singh said. He said Dikshit had in 2006 approved the raising of the retirement age from 60 years to 62 years.

Singh, former president of the Government School Teachers Association, said 10 to 15 per cent of the 3 lakh government teachers who were aged between 61 and 62 years would benefit from the move immediately. The decision is likely to affect teachers in schools run by the Delhi government, municipal corporations and the New Delhi Municipal Council.

Sources in the government said there were at least 10,000 posts of teachers vacant in government schools in Delhi. “Since this decision will ensure that at least 10 per cent of government teachers would stay on at the end of the year, the government will have more time to fill vacancies and provide better schooling,” Singh said.

Contractual government employees protest outside CM Arvind Kejriwal's house
By PTI | 3 Jan, 2014, 11.14AM IST
GHAZIABAD: Teachers employed on a contractual basis in government schools protested outside Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Kausambi residence this morning demanding permanent employment.    They were joined by contractual employees of Delhi Tourism department, also demanding permanent employment.    Around 150 contractual teachers working in MCD and Delhi government schools raised slogans outside Kejriwal's house like "Finish contractual employment in Delhi", "Make us permanent".    "Nearly 12,000 teachers are working in MCD and Delhi government schools on contractual basis. Such teachers have been teaching in schools for more than 10 years, but are not being made permanent," Sumit Bhardwaj, a teacher, said.    "Despite teaching for several years, we don't know when we could lose our jobs," Mohammad Irshad, another teacher, said.    The tourism department's contractual employees also demanded that they be offered permanent posting.    "We are 250 persons working with Delhi Tourism department for 15 years, but we are not being made permanent by the department," Naveen, working with tourism department on contractual basis, said.    After Kejriwal took over as Chief Minister, contractual employees hired by different departments have been gathering outside his Kausambi residence demanding permanent employment.    However, Kejriwal has sought ten days to put in place a system to address grievances and resolve problems.

Government teachers in Delhi protest increased working hours
Mail Today Bureau   |   Mail Today  | 
 New Delhi, January 26, 2014 | UPDATED 14:31 IST       
The decision of the AAP government to increase the working hours of staff in government school in Delhi has not gone down well with the teachers.  The Directorate of Education, in its order, said the teachers, who were working for 36 hours every week in government aided and unaided schools, will have to work for 45 hours. But the timings of students were left untouched.  Teachers have criticised the government's decision, saying it will add to their problems as they are already working under several constraints. Unlike our counterparts in private schools, we work six days a week and the government still is burdening us with extra work, they said. 
The DoE, however, maintained that the decision was taken in accordance with the Right to Education Act. "As per the RTE, we have increased the teachers' working hours to 45 hours as against the earlier 36 hours...," Director, DoE, Padmini Singla said. 
Opposition BJP hit out at the Delhi government's decision too. "They should first create more basic infrastructure and improve the existing system for the benefit of teachers and students," party leader Harsh Vardhan said.
