Navodaya teachers go on hunger strike


They demanded pension scheme, working hours and 10 per cent special allowance to all.
The hunger strike was inaugurated by Kannada Sahithya Parishath President T P Ramesh. He said the demands of Navodaya staff are justifiable. “The cries of these staff should reach the Human Resource Development department.”

“There is an urgent need to implement GPF cum pension scheme to the employees who relentlessly work day and night in the residential co-educational schools. At the same time, the schools are also getting good results. However, teachers are worried over their future after the retirement. We do not get pension. There is no social security. Even aided school teachers are given pension facilities. In spite of several appeals, the government has failed to heed to our demands. We are protesting against the negligence attitude of the authorities concerned,” said Navodaya Vidyalaya Employees Association President.
