Honorarium of teachers appointed on contract doubled in MP

Thursday July 28, 2011 09:43:24 PM, Pervez Bari,

Bhopal: The honorarium of teachers appointed on contract in Madhya Pradesh State will be doubled. The increase will be enforced for both newly appointed and the teachers already working. It will incur an additional burden of Rs. 51 crore on the State's exchequer.

It was decided at a quarterly review meeting of School Education Department chaired by the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here on Thursday. On this occasion, School Education Minister Mrs. Archana Chitnis, Minister of State for the same Mr. Nanabhau Mohod, Chief Secretary Avani Vaish were present.

As per new decisions, the honorarium of contractual teachers of cadre-3 will be increased from Rs. 2,500 to Rs. 5,000 while honorarium of teachers under cadre-2 will touch Rs. 7,000 from present Rs. 3,500 and contractual teachers of cadre-1 who are presently receiving an honorarium of Rs. 4,500 will now get Rs. 9,000. The Chief Minister Chouhan has issued directives to comply with the instructions before new recruitment of such teachers.

Chouhan instructed the officials to produce blue print of the Bill before the commencement of next Vidhan Sabha session in order to legally regulate private schools. At the meeting, the issue of recovering extra money forcefully from the guardians apart from prescribed fee structures in private schools was also raised and need was stressed on controlling such activities.

Expressing concern over delay on central funds for the modernization of Madarsas, the Chief Minister asked the officials to send letter to Central Government requesting it to remit the funds as soon as possible. He also instructed to demand more funds from the Central Government in order to open new schools as per population of cities.

He asked for timely completion of ongoing construction works under the department. It would not affect price rise of construction cost, he added. He said that such Gram Panchayats where no construction has been started so far, an alternate work should be initiated. The works, which have been left uncompleted by the Gram Panchayats, should be completed by the Department itself.

The Chief Minister Chouhan asked for constant monitoring of "School Chalen Hum Abhiyan". The cooperation of public representatives and MLAs should be sought to check dropout in schools. He reviewed the progress of computer lab installed under public private participation (PPP) mode. He instructed for online arrangements of distributing scholarships.

He expressed concern over depletion in the number of girls in gender ratio of children of 0 to six years of age. The Chief Minister informed that he himself is going to launch an awareness-drive with a view to protecting girls under the "Beti Bachao Abhiyan". He asked the department to be linked with this drive.

It was informed at the meeting that Madhya Pradesh is the first State in the country where lakh 1.11 lakh Parent-Teacher Associations are being transferred funds through generating portal. Efforts have been made to deposit directly the amount in the bank accounts of students from next year. He further informed that for the first time in the State, a special campaign was launched for admission of students to 9th class.


Overwhelming results yielded under this campaign. An increase of 52,972 students was registered in the admission of students to the Government schools in the second week of July which is seven per cent more than that of last year.
