Shillong, Oct 28: Education Minister Lahkmen Rymbui on Thursday ruled out regularising the service of 12541 teachers.
Talking to reporters, Rymbui said the state has to depend on Centre for fund .
The teachers under the banner Meghalaya SSA Schools Association (MSSASA) have been demanding regularisation of all SSA teachers and to implement the pay scale according to the prescribed norms of the Right to Education (RTE)
The MSSASA has already announced its decision to hold a mass rally on November 9, in protest against the government’s delay to release their pending salaries.
Rymbui said the state government is yet to receive any funds from the Centre for clearing the pending salaries of the SSA teachers.
“I wish the government of India will sanction maximum funds so that we can clear not only one-two months but four-five months salary at one go,” he added.
Additional Chief Secretary was in Delhi last week and he had meetings with the central government officials on the issue. “Therefore, we hope in a very short possible time, the government of India will immediately sanction the funds,” he said.
