Para teachers should take classes instead of agitating CM
| Tuesday | 20th August, 2019
Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has hit out at para-teachers for launching agitations demanding salary hike, instead of taking classes.
Para-teachers, contractual educators in government and government-aided schools of the state, had recently staged a protest in Nadia's Kalyani demanding pay hike, following which they were allegedly caned by the police.
"While they (para-teachers) were getting Rs 4,000 in 2011-2012, we increased it to more than double in 2018.
Banerjee also announced regularisation of services of part-time and whole-time contractual college teachers.
The state will name the part-time and whole-time contractual teachers of colleges as 'State Aided College Teachers' (SACT), the CM said.
