Education Minister Ms. Sabita Indrareddy, Sri Palla Rajeshwar Reddy brought to the notice of the CM about the problems faced by the contract lecturers in the government junior colleges. Speaking on the occasion, the CM said, “The state government has taken several measures about the junior college contract lecturers. The attempt to regularise them failed due to the cases in the court. The government has doubled their monthly salaries. In the past, they were paid for 10 months in a year. The state government has increased it to 12 months with full pay. The government is also giving them service benefits. We have increased their leaves and extended facilities like the Casual Leave and Maternity Leave. The government will take more measures for the welfare of these lecturers within the framework of rules and regulations,” the CM clarified.
The CM instructed the officials to take into consideration the request from the contract junior lectures that they are given an opportunity to work in the government junior college of their choice in the vacant posts. He also instructed the senior officials of the education department to prepare the guidelines keeping in view the existing rules and regulations.
