Govt to send teachers to schools on temporary basis

Shillong, March 28: Education Minister Rakkam Sangma said the state government will send temporary teachers to over 1002 lower primary schools.

In reply to a question raised by Mawhati MLA Charles Marngar, Rakkam said in the Assembly on Tuesday that the temporary teachers have already been engaged for government secondary and higher secondary schools.


He said the process of rationalisation is going on.

According to the minister, the process of recruiting teachers has been delayed due to the court order for roster system implementation.

“However, department is on the job and proper recruitment will happen immediately,” he added.

Health scheme rates 

Health and Family Welfare Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh said hospitals in the state are unlikely to agree with the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) rates.

“The CGHS rate is lower than the rates of the hospitals, so all hospitals likely do not agree with those rates and disparity is about 70%,” Lyngdoh said .

She was replying to a question raised by North Shillong legislator Adelbert Nongrum in Assembly.

“We have written to these hospitals but till now there has been no positive response” the minister said.

Currently only the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health & Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) is implementing the CGHS rates in the state.

The minister informed that the CGHS rates are all India standard rates and have not been reviewed for a very long period.

“We will allow the Government of India to revise the CGHS rates as it was done way back in 2005-06,” she said.

It would be incorrect for members to presume that the government is not concerned about the issue, she added.
