Legislators from teachers` constituency stage a walkout in Mumbai
Mumbai: Protesting against Maharashtra government`s decision not to implement the old pension scheme for teachers who retired before 2005, five members of the teachers` constituency of the State Legislative Council staged a walkout on Monday, during question hour.
They demanded that the old pension scheme should be extended to teachers from partially-aided and non-aided schools.
They walked out during question hour when Maharashtra minister of state for school education Fauzia Khan said that the old pension scheme is not applicable to teachers from partially-aided and non-aided schools who retired before 2005.
A legislator from the Shikshak Bharati Party Kapil Patil demanded that the government should implement the scheme to benefit teachers who retired before 2005.
"Teachers who retired after 2005 have been getting pension as per the old pension scheme. The new pension scheme is yet to to be implemented, but it is not possible to give pension to teachers who retired before 2005," Khan told the House, leading the legislators to walk out.
