HYDERABAD: The Government Teachers’ Association and some individuals filed petitions before the High Court challenging the Presidential Order dated June 23, 2017 where under the services of the teachers working in local bodies are integrated with the teachers working in government schools.

The petitioners’ submitted that the impugned Para 2A of the Presidential Order has far-reaching consequences as it affects the service conditions of about 40,000 teachers who have been serving the state for over three decades while working in government schools in different cadres in the district institutes of education and training.

The said para is liable to be struck down as it is violative of Article 371-D of the Presidential Order. They submitted that by integrating the teaching posts with the posts under control of the government, the units of local self-government will be deprived of their power. The case is expected to be heared in a day or two.
