Arrears for Punjab teachers working as Principals
Naveen S Garewal
Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, April 29
The move of successive governments in Punjab to make school masters and lecturers officiate as Headmasters and Principals and thereby save on salary and allowances to be paid against higher grades has boomeranged.

The Supreme Court has come down heavily on the state government asking it to pay arrears to all such teachers based on the grades for the jobs on which they officiated.

But instead of doing the needful, the panicky state government has issued instructions withdrawing all drawing and disbursing powers from officiating school heads, thereby throwing the administration of schools into a chaos.

Over the years, the Departmental Promotion Committee (DPC) meeting was deliberately postponed for a record 17 times so that senior lecturers could be kept from getting higher grades, saving the cash-strapped government some money.

Many masters and lecturers retired from service after putting in 20 to 25 years of service without getting a single promotion. There have been others who started their service as officiating heads of schools and retired in the same capacity.

Affected by the government's unfair rationale, 1,081 such teachers filed 25 writs asking to be paid for the work they had done.

The High Court and the Supreme Court have both ruled in favour of the teachers and asked the government to pay arrears based on the grades in which they officiated for the period they performed duties as officiating heads of schools.

It is estimated the government will have to dish out Rs 15 crore in arrears.

In a knee-jerk reaction, the Punjab Government has issued a letter withdrawing financial powers from all '  "stop-gap'   Headmasters and Principals.

In hundreds of schools where the senior-most master (for high schools) and lecturer (for higher secondary schools) were granted financial powers to pay the salary of school staff, these powers stand withdrawn.

In all such schools, the officiating head has been asked to draw the salaries and other expenses through neighbouring schools that have regular appointees as heads.

A Principal heading a higher secondary school draws a salary in the scale of Rs 15,600 - 39,100 besides a grade pay of Rs 6,600. A Headmaster who heads a high school draws a salary in the grade of Rs 10,300 - 34,800 besides a grade pay of Rs 5,400.

Lecturers and masters draw much lesser salary. Those officiating as school heads are expected to get several lakhs of rupees in arrears.

The move is likely to have wide-reaching ramifications in most parts of the state which has a large number of schools without regular heads.

In Tarn Taran district, there are around 30 schools out which only 14 have regular Principals. The 16 schools that are without regular heads will now have to rush to neighbouring schools with regular heads to get even sundry expenses released, thereby adversely affecting routine work.

Due to the ad hoc attitude of the state governments in the education sector, there are schools that have been without regular heads for as long as 18 years.

In light of this development, it is expected the nearly 2,000 more officiating heads are likely to move court to get similar relief.

University and college teachers' arrears : HRD moves positive

Varsity dues and age norm delinked
The Union human resource development ministry has dropped a key condition for clearing four-year arrears of teachers in colleges and universities run by state governments.
If the Union cabinet clears the proposal, around 4 lakh teachers across the country stand to gain from the ministry's change of stand.

The HRD ministry will no longer insist that states should enhance the teachers' retirement age to 65 years if the Centre were to bear most of the arrears burden that was initially estimated at Rs 9,000 crore.
The arrears arose because Delhi had asked the states in 2008 to follow the pay scales that centrally funded institutes introduced in 2008 with retrospective effect from January 1, 2006.
The Centre had said it would bear 80 per cent of the increased arrears for the first four-year period (April 1, 2006, to March 31, 2010), provided the state governments raise the teachers' superannuation age to 65 years. But many states, including Bengal, have reservations about raising the age.
The Union HRD ministry has now moved a proposal for the consideration of the cabinet, seeking its approval for de-linking the release of assistance to the state governments from the retirement age, sources told The Telegraph.
The decision was taken by the HRD ministry after a committee of secretaries headed by cabinet secretary Ajit Seth supported the demand of state governments.
'  "This is a positive development. We expect the cabinet to approve it. If it is turned down, we will launch a hunger strike in Delhi in August,'   said Asok Barman, the secretary of the Calcutta-based All India Federation of University and College Teachers Organisations.
The money has already been budgeted. However, when the cabinet takes the final decision, factors such as the grim economic outlook and the austerity signals the government has been sending may also come into play.
The UGC-initiated sixth pay package for teachers, based on which the scales of centrally funded institutes were revised, has a provision that requires raising the retirement age to 65. When the Centre asked the states to implement the same scales, many states complained that raising the age limit would cause a heavy financial burden and affect the job prospects of young aspirants.
The retirement age of faculty varies from state to state. While the cut-off age is 58 in most states, Bengal, Odisha, Manipur and Goa have set it at 60, Kerala at 55, and Bihar, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh at 62.
In August last year, the HRD ministry brought the question before the cabinet, which referred it the committee of secretaries.
The panel last month agreed with the state governments, following which the HRD ministry accepted the recommendation for dropping the age condition, a source said.
At the receiving end of the stalemate are teachers in nearly 250 state universities and 25,000 colleges. A few states such as Odisha have paid the full arrears on their own and some, including Bengal, have made partial payments. But most states are waiting for the Centre to take the final decision.
However, a faculty member of Delhi University described the ministry's change of stand as '  "unfortunate'   .
'  "This is not in the interest of teachers and higher education. Talented teachers should not be allowed to go waste at an age when they are able to contribute,'   said Aditya Narayan Mishra, a faculty member of Delhi University and former president of the Federation of Central University Teachers Association.
'  "The state governments do not want to pay experienced teachers. They are appointing ad hoc and visiting faculties by paying very little. They are not appointing permanent faculties,'   he added.
