ITANAGAR | Nov 29 | The central executive committee of All Arunachal Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan Teachers’ Association (AASSATA) on behalf of state’s SSA teachers in a memorandum today have urged education secretary to redress their long pending grievances.
Highlighting their predicament, it said that the SSA teachers have been serving with honesty, devotion and sincerity by sacrificing their better life for the last 14 years of in SSA since 2003 but have been deprived of a respectful status and serving with a insecure future.
Worth mentioning here that, A good number of SSA teachers have already crossed 35-40 years of youthful age and their over aged criteria does not offer any future prospect for absorption in other departmental job on regular cadre nor they have accessible criteria to appear in any competitive assessments excepts to exist in SSA.
APTET/CTET issue: State’s education special secretary on November 23 had cited that “all SSA Teachers to possess APTET/ CTET certificate as a requisite qualification for getting appointment as a teacher in elementary education”. Thus, the AASSATA on November 28 meeting had a threadbare discussion on the issue.
It referred to GoAP order no ED.2/649/2009 dated 08.01.13 that passed an order that 15% of vacant AT posts will filled by direct recruitment from candidate having passed APTET/CTET as per RTE ACT/NCTE guidelines and norms. As per notification (NoED.2/649/2009, 25.08.09) -. 50% of TGT to be recruited by the APPSC; 25% of TGT shall be filled from serving ATs on promotional from DEE; remaining 25% posts shall be filled up from serving JTs of SSA teachers on seniority and batch-wise basis.
Thus, the question of DPC from APTET qualifier by pick and choice is condemnable act and found illegal and beyond official guidelines.
Creation of PRT & TGT posts batch-wise: Regularisation process adopted by the department under various notifications since 2009 cannot o solve existing regularization process without creation of posts. However, the ASSATA had launched series of democratic stir which had ended with acceptance of creation of PRT & TGT posts in one batch in one DPC as
Thus, AASSATA GS Techi Bollo and AGS Techi Eka Tara reiterated its demands for creation of posts for batch-wise regularisation, hike of salary at par with regular teachers; roll back DPC policy on APTET/ CTET.
