  • Notional increment for 2 years training sought
  • Plea to recruit special vidya volunteers

    HYDERABAD: The Progressive Recognised Teachers' Union (PRTU) will court arrest in front of all district Collectorates on March 4 protesting against the Government's indifference to their long pending demands.

    P. Venkat Reddy, president, and A. Ravikiran, general secretary of PRTU, said on Wednesday that the Government had been apprised of the inhuman treatment meted to the teachers in the name of apprenticeship for two years but it had failed to put an end to it, despite assurances.

    They asked the Government to grant two notional increments for all teachers who had worked as apprentices for two years.

    They also sought extension of the previous pension scheme for the teachers and appointment of special vidya volunteers through the DSC 2002 and 2003.

    The Government should also ensure that teachers in aided and municipality schools got salaries on the first of every month through the treasury apart from medical reimbursement.
