The seven-day long strike by the Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) employees was called off on Tuesday evening following an assurance from the State Government to consider their demands.
The major demand of the agitating employees was that the council should get assistance from the State Government for implementing examination reforms.
The Department of Higher Education (DHE) has implemented examination reforms in the plus-two colleges following allegations of question paper leak.
The CHSE officials said that the council will have to bear a financial burden of about `7.4 crore to implement the reforms during the Board examinations next year.
CHSE Chairman Basudev Chattoi said of the additional expenses of `7.4 crore, about `1.4 crore was needed for security of question papers.
Since the form fill-up for next year’s Board examinations has already begun, the DHE has assured to provide financial assistance of `3.9 crore this year.
About 250 employees took part in the strike.
