Kuldeep raises concern over non-issue of orders re-engaging the Part- time employees/workers

Port Blair, Jun29: KuldeepRai Sharma, PCC President invited the attention of the Director of Education, A&N Administration and expressed his concern over non-issue of orders re-engaging the part time employees/workers engaged as Craft Instructors, Pre-Primary Teachers, Pre-Primary Ayahs/ SafaiKaramchari and Attendants at various schools located in A&N Islands for the academic year 2018-19. He said that a large number of part time PPT, PPA and Craft Instructors are continually engaged by the Education Department since long and the services of these employees are being utilized to satisfy the requirement laid down under the Right to Education Act 2009.
Mr Rai further said that these Part Time employees/workers are engaged for a academic session and their services are terminated on commencement of the summer vacation, which means that these part time employees are paid only for 10 months in year. Being part-time employees they are getting very meagre wages. They are also not entitled for any kind of leave , hence if they don’t attend the school even due to unavoidable circumstances, their wages are proportionately cut thereby resulting in further reduction in the monthly wages and therefore they are facing much hardship to maintain their family.
The PCC President in his letter requested the DEO that the case of these part time employees/workers engaged as Craft Instructors, Pre-Primary Teachers, Pre–Primary Ayahs/ SafaiKaramchari and Attendants at various schools be considered sympathetically and necessary orders for their re-engagement for the academic year 2018-19 be issued at the earliest.
