The move comes three days after the government enacted the 7th Pay Commission to increase the salaries of about 42,000 teachers and non-teaching staff in newly aided private high schools, upper primary (ME) schools, madrasas and aided private colleges.

About 26,164 teachers and non-teaching staff of private high schools, UP (ME) schools and madrasas who have received 100 per cent grant-in-aid will benefit from such augmentation. Similarly, an estimated 15,664 subsidized college teachers and non-teaching staff will receive such increased financial benefits, official sources said.


For the last four years, teachers, non-teachers and employees have been demanding revised salaries. Earlier, they received grant-in-aid as recommended by the 6th Pay Commission.

The extended grant-aid will be conceptualized from January 1, 2018, while the actual increased financial benefits will be effective from January 1, 2022.

In the New Year, the state government has regularized the employment of 8,102 contract junior teachers. During the winter session of the state assembly, teachers staged an indefinite dharna in the lower PMG demanding regularization of their jobs.
