SHILLONG, June 3: Chief Minister Mukul Sangma in a meeting with the leaders of the Federation of All Meghalaya Adhoc Secondary Teachers’ Association (FAMASTA) today assured that the government would increase the salaries of the teachers within this year.

The association however has set a one-month time frame for the government to fulfill their demand.

Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, president of FAMASTA Bi Kharumnuid said, “Since the time the association was formed in 1998, we have time and again voiced the grievances faced by teachers to the state government that we deserve equal pay for equal work as the rest of the teaching fraternity.”

She informed that the Chief Minister has assured them that their salaries will be increased within this year and he has also instructed the maging committees that the salaries of the teachers should be dispersed through banks.

“The CM has not given any specific date to revise our salaries. However, from our side we have set a time frame of one month to the state government to meet our demands,” she said.

Stressing that the main objective of their demand is to attain job security, she said, “Initially, we used to get only Rs. 1,800 and now we are receiving just Rs. 10,000. We want the government to hike our salaries by 100 percent which will come to Rs. 20,000 per month.”
