In continuation to ongoing adhoc teacher’s impasse, the government may rethink to roll back the new Ad-hoc teacher’s policy in the state and implement the old one.Requesting anonymity, a highly placed source told Sikkim Chronicle that the state government is in the decision of rolling back the new policy, keeping in mind the ongoing Adhoc teachers’ protest.“The protest by a few Ad-hoc teachers against the new policy has compelled the state government to rethink on quashing the new policy and enforce the old one” said the government source.According to the old policy, the teachers have to renew their services every year.“As per the old policy the teachers were receiving a salary for eight months with very less hope of getting regularization” he added.It may be noted here that the Education Minister Kunga Nima Lepcha had said that the new policy for Ad-hoc Teachers would not require yearly service extension, instead a one time interview would be held after which no renewal would be required 8 years.The Minister had further stated that the service of the ad-hoc teacher would be automatically regularized after completion of 8 years and that as per the new policy the ad-hoc teachers would be paid the salary for twelve months instead of eight months.
