GOA: The new director of education Santosh Amonkar said that the salary of staff of aided schools for the month of July will not be delayed beyond 2 to 3 days.
Vandana Rao was transferred out from the post of director of education, following a controversial circular issued by her asking school managements of aided schools to pay the July salary of their staff.
Rao had said that as one employee of directorate of education tested postive for Covid-19, staff of two sections were under home quarantine.
The circular was withdrawn after chief minister Pramod Sawant intervened. A clarification circular had said that the state government itself will pay the July salary for staff of aided institutes, but there may be a delay due to directorate of education employees from the concerned section being under home quarantine.
