New Delhi: How would private unaided schools in the national capital implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations without hiking their fees, the Delhi high court asked the AAP government on Monday.
The query was posed to the Delhi government by a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar while asking it to file a status report on the implementation of the pay panel recommendations in private unaided schools.
The court said the government will have to monitor the implementation of the recommendations and should not wait for teachers’ complaints to take any action.
The Delhi government told the bench that it had issued an order in August last year asking all private unaided schools to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and added that it has not received any complaint from teachers saying this was not being done.
“Why should you wait for complaints? You have to monitor the implementation of your order. Here you cannot take the excuse that the Central government is not giving you funds,” the bench said and directed the Delhi government to file a status report in eight weeks.
The court, which listed the matter for further hearing on September 25, was hearing a PIL by an NGO seeking directions to the city government and the three municipal corporations to ensure implementation of the recommendations regarding the teaching and non-teaching staff of the private unaided schools.
