Srinagar, December 20: Prominent Social Activist and National TV Debater Inam Un Nabi has urged upon the Lt Governor of Jammu and Kashmir that the services of Rehbar-e-Khel Physical Education Teachers should be regularised on priority basis who are working in Youth Services and Sport Department.
A delegation of Rehbar-e-Khel called on Inam Un Nabi, while Pointing out that Supreme Court of India has also advocated equal work for equal pay, the delegation told Inam Un Nabi that Rehbar-e-Khel Physical Education Teachers are getting only Rs 3000 month as honorarium for two years and then Rs 4000 month till completion of 7 years and their regularization depending upon their performances and availability of the post. “It is great injustice for young employees who are also our future and all having degrees of B.P.Ed , M.P.Ed , M.Phil and Phd,” Delegation told Inam Un Nabi.
While urging the govt to address the issues of Rehbar e Khel Physical education teachers, Inam said that parents of these youth, who belongs to low income group, have supported them for obtaining their higher Technical degrees but now they all facing financial crisis due to very low monthly honorarium. “Rehbar-e-Khel teachers have no other better income source even their services were utilised in critical situation of COVID-19 pandemic besides in elections. They are totally dependent on this monthly honorarium,” Inam said.
“How Rehber-e-Khel physical teacher will perform their duties best for the physical development of a child when they himself have not been satisfied financially and their mental health will also get disturbed due to uncertainty of their families and because of these facts, Government should give first priority for their regularisation for the betterment of students physical health,” Inam said .
