Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao has decided to extend the monthly financial assistance of Rs 2000 and 25 Kg rice to each of the family of private teachers in the state.
Announcing the decision here today, the CM said this would help at least 1.5 lakh private teachers working in various institutions. He said this would come into immediate effect and would last till the educational institutions open up in the state. The 25 kgs rice can be had every month from the local fair price shops at no cost.
He further stated the decision has been taken keeping in view the plights of the private teachers working in all the recognised public and private educational institutions in the state due to the spread of Coronavirus. It may be recalled a 35-year-old private teacher in Nagarjuna Sagar Ravi had recently committed suicide besides few others elsewhere in the state due to financial constraints as they rendered jobless due to pandemic.
“This should not take place”, he said and wanted all those eligible teachers including other staff members to approach the District Collector concerned to apply for the same by providing their bank details and other relevant information.
The CM has instructed Education Minister Ms Sabita Indrareddy, Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar, Government’s Chief Advisor Rajiv Sharma to hold a videoconference at 11.30 AM tomorrow at BRK Bhavan and instruct the district collectors, DEOs and Civil Supplies departments DSOs and instruct them on the implementation procedure with required guidelines and action plan.
