Bhubaneswar: A day after protests in front of residences of 6 ministers by school teachers, the Odisha government today informed that the modalities for permanent recruitment of teachers have been finalized.
Following an inter-ministerial meeting chaired by Finance minister Pradeep Amat, School and Mass Education minister Debi Prasad Mishra informed that the modalities have been finalized and will be sent to the government for approval.
“We had deliberations on the various demands of the school teachers and we have finalized the modalities for regularization of teachers. Moreover, we also had discussions with the Law department regarding the schools which had not fulfilled grant-in-aid criteria for eligibility. After we receive a report on the legal implications, we will find which all grant-in-aid schools are eligible and forward the proposal to the cabinet for approval. We also discussed the financial implications of schools which are not receiving uniforms, especially grant-in-aid ME schools,” said Mishra.
Commenting on time frame for implementation, Mishra said, as it is a process it will take required time and implementation will be done once decisions are approved.
