Chandigarh: In a bonanza for guest teachers
in Haryana, the state government on Thursday hiked their pay by 20
percent and announced a slew of benefits relating to their
service.

The decision to this effect was taken at a meeting
convened by Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda with the
representatives of Haryana Atithi Adyapak Sangh here.

The enhanced pay would be effective from July 1 this
year, an official release said.

No guest teacher would be removed from the service even
after appointment of teachers on regular basis, the release
quoting Hooda said.

Female guest teachers would be entitled for three-month
maternity leave with pay and they would also be able to change
their district of posting in case of marriage or other
important reasons.

The issue to regularise their services was also discussed
and it was decided that any decision in this regard would be
taken after obtaining legal opinion, it said.
