KGBV teachers stages protest


SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV) teachers Tuesday staged a protest here in Srinagar expressing concern over the dilly dally tactics adopted by Department of Education in their regularization.

Scores of female teachers assembled in director education  Srinagar and alleged that despite clear cut directions from the General Administrative Department, the Directorate of School Education Kashmir have not regularized their services while in Jammu, the process has been completed already.They said that the government resolved their matter in 2016 by issuing formal orders for their ‘absorption’ into the education department.

However, they said they have been pushed to the wall by callous attitude of the Education Department, which has not issued orders in the last six months.

“We are suffering. We are now fighting the case of our regularization for a long time. We have used all our means. We have suffered huge mental stress over the years. We have even exhausted all our resources after the case. Our only hope is our regularization,” Mymoona Khan told .

“We fail to understand as to why the authorities are delaying our regularization in the Education Department. We even brought the matter into the notice of the authorities of the department,” she added She said that when the Director School Education, Jammu, has issued the orders for KGBVs in his zone, why is Director School Education, Kashmir, reluctant to do so.
