GOA: The state government on Friday withdrew a circular asking all government-aided schools to pay teachers’ salaries for July from their own funds. Chief minister said
Pramod Sawant said that director of education Vandana Rao issued the circular without sending him the file.
“If one goes by the rule book, it was the right decision,” Sawant said. “However, I have asked the department to rectify the decision. The circular was issued without the file being put up to me.” Sawant said
“It is clarified that since all staff members of the GIA sections of the DoE engaged in processing salary bills of aided schools have been placed under home quarantine, the work of preparation of salary bills has been hampered,” said Rao. “. Salary disbursal for the current month is likely to be delayed. Once the staff members rejoin their duties, the salary bills will be processed.”
