S Delhi private school teachers initiate legal action for full salaries
| Monday | 22nd February, 2021
New Delhi: Eight teachers of a South Delhi private school have now sent a legal notice to their employer for improper salary payments, not issuing appointment letters and not providing benefits that were promised upon employment.
Since March 2020, they've been receiving barely one-third of their actual salary, that too, in cash, the teachers allege.
The legal notice to the school also states that all employees are "qualified trained teachers as per Section 10(1) of the Delhi School Education Act,1973" and as such are "legally entitled to salaries as per the 7th pay commission w.e.f.
"Post a contentious fee hike in 2009, the CAG finally audited 25 private schools in Delhi and published a report in 2010.
This malpractice in salary payments has been officially noted in that report."
