Gangtok, 11 Feb:

The All Sikkim Adhoc & Temporary Employees Association [ASATEA] today expressed satisfaction with how the Human Resource Development Department has followed up on their demand and confirmed that all demands of adhoc teachers have been included in the proposal to be sent to the government for the approval.

While expressing satisfaction over the outcome of today’s meeting, the association has appealed to all teachers to resume their duties at their respective schools from Tuesday onwards.

Representatives of adhoc teachers held a meeting with senior officials of the HRDD today after having aired doubts that several issues discussed and agreed upon in previous meetings had been left out from recommendations made by the committee constituted by the department.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, an executive member of the association, Yogesh Sharma, mentioned that the meeting discussed the left out issues in the recommendation of the committee and informed that the department has agreed to include all demands of adhoc teachers.

He said that the file was ready to be sent to the government for the approval.

He further informed that the department has assured to take out an official notification on all demands by Saturday.

“We will wait till Saturday and hope everything is sorted out. The department has agreed on our stand that no adhoc teacher will be terminated after getting into the service and they should get service continuation,” Mr Sharma said.

He stated that the association was hopeful that justice will be delivered soon.

He has appealed to all adhoc teachers and employees to submit all required documents with the form provided by the HRDD as soon as possible for the regularisation process.

Mr Sharma further appealed to all adhoc teachers to resume their duties at their respective places from tomorrow. Those teachers who has not received their appointment orders will do so by the end of the week, he said.
