The Gujarat government is once again reducing the grade-pay of teachers. Currently, there is a huge outcry among the teachers over the declining grade-pay. Teachers across the state have launched the # 4200gujarat campaign on social media for their rights.
Elementary teachers have been receiving 4200 grade pay since 1994 after nine years in the job. The Gujarat government issued a circular in the year 2019 that now the teachers who have been recruited after the year 2010 will get the first higher salary standard 2800 grade pay after nine years. Gujarat government is going to affect 65000 teachers across the state by reducing grade pay.
Outrage has erupted over the reduction of teachers’ grade pay. On this issue, the education union has also made every effort to resolve these issues in various ways. The teachers are expressing their grief saying why the grade pay we used to get from 4200 was reduced to 2800? Not in any other department but why is the government reducing the salaries of teachers? We don’t want a pay rise, but why is there a cut in the pay that has been decided for years? Nine years later today, the first higher salary scale was 4200. Which the government has made 2800. Then again we are fighting for 4200 grade-pay.
In this regard, Congress leader Dr. According to Manish Doshi, the biggest center of corruption in Gujarat is the education department. Circulars are manipulated to create discrepancies and teachers are victimized through various means.
The Department of Education has to ask why the teachers who shape the society are the ones who are being treated unfairly. This is an injustice to the dignity of teachers, they are also financially disadvantaged. The country in which teachers are respected develops.
