Teachers and other staff members of the Guru Harkrishan Public Schools (GHPS) have sought intervention of the Delhi Government in the arrears of the Sixth Pay Commission due for the last 10 years.
They also said as the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has allegedly violated the direction given by the court for paying the arrears, the government should take over the schools so that teachers get their dues.
Mangesh Nayak who is contesting the case said that the Sixth Pay Commission was set up in 2006. Since then the management of the GHPS chain of schools, (DSGMC), has been delaying the payment of the arrears.
He said the DSGMC asked the teachers to accept just 40 per cent of the arrears as it is short of funds. Those who accepted were given out-of-turn promotion. Those who opposed are being harassed.
Jaswant Kaur who is a primary teacher in the Loni Road branch of the school said that she was appointed as LDC and now works
as primary teacher. When she refused to accept the 40 per cent of the arrears, she was told that her appointment was illegal.
Sadhana Verma, TGT science, has been suspended for raising the voice in a meeting of the school management committee.
Rajni Nayak, a PGT in Vasant Vihar Branch of the school, said that she has been working as PGT since 1990, but was refused promotion as she was among the teachers who had opposed the policy on arrears.
According to teachers, the DSGMC has issued a list of 611 persons whose appointments were ‘illegal’.
Rubbishing the allegations, the spokesperson, Parminderpal Singh said that the DSGMC has already submitted an affidavit in the court, saying that it will pay the arrears of the Sixth Pay Commission. As far as action against teachers is concerned, the authorities concerned take action only against those who do not work.
