Six decades later award winning teacher continues fight for promised increment
| Sunday | 10th June, 2018
Jaipur: Ramavtar Sharma, a winner of National Award to Teachers, has been chasing officials for an extra increment for nearly six decades.
That increment was supposed to be given to him for doubling the student strength at a government school in a nondescript Rajasthan village on his first posting as a teacher.
The amount of the double increment may be meager, but it is for honour and justice that I am fighting for years," Sharma told PTI.
It took about 16 years for his file on double increment to move from Barmer to the Panchayati Raj department in Jaipur.
But the promised double increment, which he sees as another recognition for his work, still eluded him.
