JAMMU, MARCH 8:
The State Administrative Council (SAC) which met here today under the chairmanship of Governor, Satya Pal Malik approved temporary re-hiring of eligible subject specific Teachers who have rendered their services during the last academic year 2018-19 to run classes in the 110 upgraded schools under RMSA.
The School Education Department proposed re-hiring of these teachers from 11.03.2019 in winter zone schools and 01.04.2019 in summer zone schools upto 30.06.2019 or till the provision of regular teaching staff by the department by way of rationalization, whichever is earlier.
This decision has been taken to ensure continuance of the academic activities in the schools situated mostly in far flung areas and in the larger interest of the student community. The re-hiring is also necessary in view of the likely imposition of Model Code of Conduct.
Pertinent to mention that 550 subject specific Teachers were engaged on contract basis by School Education Department for one year (from 26.02.2018) in the 110 High Schools under erstwhile Centrally Sponsored Scheme RMSA, now Samagra Shiksha. Teachers have been provided to run the classes of 9th and 10th in various subjects.
These candidates were engaged on the basis of recommendations of a Committee constituted by the School Education Department and are paid a consolidated salary as per MHRD approval. Their term of engagement came to an end on 25.02.2019.
