Yamunanagar. A virtual meet of Retired College Principals and Teachers Association Haryana was organized in the city. The meeting was chaired by the president of the association, Dr. AS Malhotra, directed. The meeting unanimously decided to file a petition for justice with the court to benefit from the fictitious salary bond.
Association President Dr. AS Malhotra told the meeting that the government had not provided the benefits of notional salary fixation under the Seventh Pay Commission to the teachers who retired before January 1, 2016. In order to enforce this, the association has now decided to go to court. Malhotra said that in the meeting, all members unanimously agreed to file a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Now the association will soon file an application with the court to seek justice.
On this occasion, Dr. RK Awasthi, general secretary of the association, briefed the members on the decisions taken in the virtual meeting on October 23. Dr. Malhotra said that the state government had provided the benefit of notional salary fixation to the retired teachers of government colleges before 2016 and the retired teachers of Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak. However, this benefit is not provided to retired teachers of aided colleges.
He said that the government had earlier strongly recommended the issue of notional salary peg and forwarded it to the Finance Ministry. But the file kept moving back and forth for two or three years and he wasn’t granted the benefit. Now the file has returned to the DHE office again and the case has been dismissed for no specific reason. This is pure injustice towards retired teachers. The association has now decided to file a lawsuit against this injustice with the court. To submit the petition, the members, including the head of the association, Dr. Yogesh Kumar and Prof. Rights were given to Devendra Anand. On this occasion it was also agreed that the retired rector Dr. RP Singh from GMN College, Ambala, as a new member of the management board. The convener of the association, Dr. Balbir Singh, thanked the members who attended the meeting.
