The Odisha government on Friday approved the proposal to provide grant-in-aid as per the 7th Pay Commission scale to the eligible staff in new-aided non-government High Schools, Upper Primary Schools, Madrasas and colleges.

Following a Cabinet meeting today, Odisha Chief Secretary Suresh Mohapatra said that all the eligible teaching and non-teaching of the said education institutions will get grant-in-aid on the basis of Odisha Revised Scale of Pay Rules, 2017 (7th Pay).

"About 26164 teaching and non-teaching employees of the New-Aided Non-Government High Schools, UP(ME) Schools and Madrasas who are in receipt of 100% Grant-in-Aid will be benefited by such enhancement," read an official release.

This new hike in salary will be effective from January 1, 2022. Around 26000 school teachers and 16664 college teachers will be benefitted with this announcement of the State government.
