1,000 IEDSS teachers have not got salary for over a year

More than 1,000 teachers in the state, many in Pune, working under the Central scheme of Inclusive Education for Disabled at Secondary Stage (IEDSS) have not received their salaries for over a year. Non-release of funds by the Centre over serious doubts about the credentials of some of the IEDSS units in the state is said to be the reason.

These teachers have been mandated to enable all students with disabilities, after completing eight years of schooling, to pursue four years of secondary schooling .

"It is outrageous and equally disturbing that teachers like us who take care of disadvantaged children have not got their salaries for the past 14 months," Swati Tadphale, a teacher from Bhor taluka in Pune said. State Director of Education (primary) Mahaveer Mane said inspection of all IEDSS units was carried. "We are in process of compiling inspection data. I am planning to visit Delhi shortly to clear doubts and ensure release of funds," he said.
