L-G approves promotions of teachers in govt-run schools

New Delhi, Nov 30 Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal has approved promotions of several teachers, a move aimed at filling over 16,000 posts, including 1,000 for principals and vice-principals in government-run schools.

According to the L-G’s office, the decision would increase the morale of teachers and also lead to commensurate vacancies in the feeder cadres, which would be filled by promotions and regular recruitments.

“Around 15,930 posts of teachers and about 1,000 posts of principals and vice principals can now be filled through promotion, after the approval accorded by L-G to conduct adhoc promotions in accordance with a recent high court judgement…” the L-G office said in a statement.

There were around 50,000 teachers for about 16 lakh students at over 1,100 government schools in the national capital.

Of the 50,000, there are around 17,000 guest teachers.

Last month, the Delhi Assembly had passed a bill to regularise 17,000 guest teachers.

L-G seeks report from Kejriwal govt on green cess issue

New Delhi, Nov 30  Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal has sought a report from the Arvind Kejriwal government over alleged non-utilisation of Rs 1,002 crore collected as environment compensation charge (ECC).

The L-G’s direction came after a memorandum was submitted by Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari and Leader of Opposition Vijender Gupta requesting an inquiry “into non- utilisation or misuse of government money of environment cess to the tune of Rs 1,002 crore”.

“The Lt Governor has desired that a report in the matter through the minister (transport), GNCTD, be submitted expeditiously for his kind perusal,” R N Sharma, Special Secretary to L-G, said in a letter to transport commissoner.

Tiwari and Gupta had met Baijal on November 16 and urged him to seek a report from the AAP government on the environment cess and direct it to procure 8,000 new buses with the fund.

Earlier this month, the Delhi government had been criticised for non-utilisation of over Rs 1,000 crore collected as ECC (till November 10), when the city was grappling with air pollution crisis.

Facing flak, the AAP government had announced that it would procure 500 electric e-buses.
