Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government has given Diwali gift to 15,000 guest teachers working in Delhi government’s schools by declaring that they all will be regularized soon.
Though this step will have a ripple effect across the country, AAP led Delhi government to have a long way to get it implemented.
Now, Government will table this bill in the assembly and after getting it cleared from the assembly it will be sent to LG office for the clearance.
Interestingly, 14 bills of Delhi government is pending which were passed by the assembly two years ago.
“Delhi Cabinet met on Wednesday under the Chair of Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal and decided to regularize about 15000 Guest teachers and teachers engaged under “Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan”,” Delhi government said.
“The draft Legislative proposal has been formulated, which will be brought in the ensuing Delhi Vidhan Sabha Session to be convened on 4th October for approval,” Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
He further informed that Delhi has been 1st State to notify “Learning Outcomes” based on the initiatives of NCERT.
It would be very tough for the government to bear the expense of regularising all guest teachers.
“There would be added burden on the government which needs to be addressed. Also, it would be very tough to get it cleared from the Union government as 14 bills are already pending since last two years which have been already passed by the assembly,” a government official said.
