Hundreds of crores of rupees is lying as outstanding fee with the parents as due to lockdown many activities have come to halt.

Over 70000 staff associated with schools are facing huge salary cuts. The Association has requested J&K Bank to come forward with a more liberal financial package to help the education sector to survive at this crucial juncture.

The Association has impressed upon the Chairman Bank to delay the transfer process for time being as it will hamper the smooth functioning of Bank particularly at Branch levels where it takes time for a new manager to analyse and understand the needs of customers. Today the State is in a sort of financial emergency. Any transfers at this stage is bound to affect the routine business and will create lot of hardships for the existing clients.
