Unaided schools may have to follow quota in appointments


At present, the reservation system is compulsory in schools which get grants from the government.

Replying to a question by  Basavaraj Horatti (JD-S) in the Legislative Council, on Wednesday, Vishweshwara Hegde Kageri said the government had made implementation of the roster system compulsory to get aid.

The government would bring in a law to ensure that unaided schools also adhere to reservation policy, he added.

Horatti alleged that the government was removing staff, those appointed before 1992, in aided schools in the name of implementing the roster system.

However, there was a government order stating that those appointed before June 1, 1992 should not be removed from the service on the grounds of the roster system. But the officers in the Education Department were dishonouring the order, he said.
Kageri said that the officers in the department were acting upon directions from the DPAR.

He told the House he would discuss with the officers of DPAR and also discuss the issue in the cabinet.

DEd faculty

Kageri promised the House that the government would take measures to revise pay-scale of teaching faculty in government DEd colleges.

Replying to a Horatti’s notice in the zero hour, as per the recommendations of the Fifth Pay Commission, the faculty members should get a pay-scale on a par with lecturers of under graduate colleges.

The minister also appealed to teaching faculty of DEd colleges staging protest in
Banappa Park to withdraw the protest.
