With the payment of salaries to 609 teachers through treasury under 010 Account, a long-pending demand has been fulfilled. This eases the financial burden on GVMC.

An amount of Rs.1.86 crore, payable towards the salary of October, has been credited to the respective bank accounts of the teachers.

Though a GO was issued in September, its implementation took five months, according to an official release. However, to help teachers tide over the crisis, GVMC has paid them salaries as advance.

Since the first month’s salary has been paid, for the next four months bills can be claimed now.

For Anakapalle and Bheemunipatnam, the payment is being made under 010 head account.
