BENGALURU: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has asked officials of the education department to place before the cabinet a proposal submitted by the lecturers’ association seeking paid leave to pursue B.Ed course.

The issue was discussed in a meeting held on Thursday with officials of the department, where Primary and Secondary Education Minister Tanveer Sait and principal secretary to the department Ajay Seth were present.

After the meeting, Sait said, “We need to discuss the issue with the lecturers’ association and after that, we will place it before the cabinet as per the instructions of the CM.”

The lecturers’ association is demanding paid leave to enable them to pursue B.Ed course as the degree is mandatory for them to teach at pre-university colleges. “It is not yet decided whether to give leave with pay or leave with stipend or leave with half salary. We need to discuss this with them and then we will take it to the cabinet for approval,” explained Sait.

As per the data, there are over 720 PU college lecturers who have to complete their B.Ed course.
