Teachers of private schools have the right to get salary equal to government: Delhi HC

 

The Delhi High Court has given an important decision regarding the salary of unaided school teachers in Delhi. The court said that the teachers of unaided private schools are entitled to get salary and other allowances equal to the teachers of government schools.

This decision of the court has come in response to the petition of a private school in which it challenged the instructions to pay salary to its teachers as per the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

Referring to Section 10 of the Delhi School Education Act, the Delhi High Court said that the scale of salary and allowances, medical facilities, pension, gratuity, provident fund and other benefits of a recognized private school should not be less than that of the employees of government schools. The Court also highlighted a notification issued by the Directorate of Education, directing all recognized schools to implement the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission.

A bench of Justice Manmohan and Justice Mini Pushkarna emphasized that unaided private schools cannot shirk their statutory responsibility and they have to fulfill their obligation to pay teachers the same salary and benefits as in government schools.

The Court noted that it is an undisputed position of law that teachers of unaided private schools are entitled to pay and emoluments at par with their government school counterparts, as mandated by the Delhi School Education Act, 1973.

The court dismissed the appeal challenging the direction saying it lacked merit. Apart from this, the court ordered the appellant school to give benefits and salary to the teachers under the provisions of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.

In the decision, the teachers have also been given the right to get the arrears till January 1, 2016. Three teachers of the appellant school approached the High Court after the school was not given the benefit of the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
