Agartala, January 13, 2023: All Tripura School Computer Teachers Sangh on Friday demanded the state government to adopt the ICT project and engage 604 computer teachers directly under the Education department.
Speaking to media persons here at Agartala Press Club, ATSCTS spokesperson Subhankar Roy said “In the past, we have placed our demands to the eight District Education Officers (DEOs) and State Education department’s office. Each and every time, the government officials had assured us of doing something on positive point of view. But, later there’s nothing good we could see for our betterment.”
“Since 2008, ICT project started in Tripura but till now, almost 15 years passed off, no initiative has been taken by the Education department for the betterment of the Computer teachers under this ICT project”, he added.
Roy said “The ICT project adopted is managed by an agency which is the third party. If this project by the state government on its own, then it will help us in boosting our mentality for giving labour in betterment of the school students.”
“The present government believes in the policy of ‘equal pay for equal work’, but in our case, we have to be a part of all those works which are being done by regularized teachers in various schools. But at the end of the month, our salaries are stuck at Rs 10,000 per month. We are hopeful that the present government will responsive positively to our prayers”, ATSCTS spokesperson told reporters.
Apart from this Roy urged the Education department to make Computer a main subject and supply computer books to the students.
In the press meet, Sangh’s president Bhabesh Chakraborty, general secretary Narayan Raha and others were present.
