Aizawl: Hindi teachers under Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) numbering 1,305 have not received their salaries for seven months, Mizoram School Education minister H. Rohluna Tuesday said.
In a written reply to Vanlalzawma of the Mizo National Front (MNF) in the state assembly, Rohluna said that the Hindi teachers did not receive salaries since April till October this year and the salaries were being paid in November.
He said that the salaries could not be paid as the Union Ministry of Human Resources Development could not give sanction on time.
He said that workers under the state mission of the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) could not get their salaries since August this year.
He added that there were 4,245 workers including 3,007 teachers working under the state mission of the SSA.
