Itagar, Oct 17: The Aruchal Teachers’ Association (ATA) has expressed its extreme disappointment and displeasure over state government’s alleged apathetic attitude in fulfilling various long-pending demands of the teachers’ association.

ATA has been demanding complete bifurcation of Elementary and Secondary Education from block to district level with creation of DDEE, DDSE & SEO posts, creation of Principal & HM/VP posts, Single Entry Grade of teachers, notification of BEO RR, conduct of DPC twice in a year for all categories, Group ‘B’ Gazette Status for PGT and modification of TGT RR etc. ATA lamented that all of its demands are lying uttended despite repeated pleas in forms of memorandum and representations to the state government. The State Government should take the matters seriously and redress all the pending issues and demands immediately. While welcoming the salary release, ATA appealed to the state government to address the long pending demands of SSA teachers, who are living in utter hopelessness due to job insecurity.

“Out of 6527 SSA teachers in the state, at least 60 percent of them have reached the age of 40 plus. If present phase of regularization process continues then it would take more than 100 years to accommodate such a large number of teachers,” ATA said, and appealed to the state Govt. to bring forth a fitting and enduring mechanism to permanently resolve the issue.

ATA also suggested the State government to invite the agitating AASSATA members for a round table discussion and resolve their genuine demand so that the academic activities are not hampered.
