Salaries not paid to coaches
By Kamal Kishore Shankar

LUDHIANA, Sept 13 Guru bina gati nahi hoti (nobody can succeed without a teacher) is an old saying. But the Punjab Government appears to mean otherwise. This is evident from the plight of sports coaches in the local Government College.

Although the coaches are regular employees of the state government but they have not been paid their salaries since June. Mr Brij Bihari, a basketball coach, told Ludhiana Tribune that two coaches, one clerk, one ground marker, and two peons were suffering for not getting their salaries. He disclosed that there were 36 coaches and other supporting staff in various colleges who are facing the same problem. The irregularities in the payment of salaries started in 1998.

The coaches in various government colleges have been working under the DPI ( Colleges ) since 1974. Col Raminder Singh, Director, Sports and Youth Services, issued an order on March 31,1993, to absorb these coaches in the Sports Department. The coaches filed a writ against the order in the Punjab and Haryana High Court. The order was quashed by the high court. After that these coaches remain in the same department.

These coaches have reportedly brought the matter to the notice of Mr H.S.Deol, DPI (Colleges), Punjab. He said it was the Finance Department which sanctioned the salary of these coaches and he could do nothing in this matter.

Mr Jagwinder Singh, a hockey coach at Government College for Boys, here, disclosed that the college had produced many national and international players. Mr Yashpal Sharma, a veteran cricketer, is the product of this college. "We are doing our best to produce good players. But we have been ignored by the government for many years. We have to wait for months together to get our salary", he said.

He pointed out that people frequently criticise the sportspersons, especially coaches for not bringing medals in the Olympics and Asian Games but nobody is ready to listen to their problems.
