Mizoram SSA Teachers Unpaid For Past 3 Months

Aizawl, Sep 26 : Teachers working under the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan (SSA), both in the Primary Schools and Upper Primary Schools in Mizoram, are yet to receive their salaries since June last, officials in the SSA State Mission said on Wednesday.

The officials said that there are 550 teachers in the Primary Schools and 1,643 in the Upper Primary Schools, who could not get their salaries for three months.
The Mizoram government's inability to release the state matching contribution of 10 percent was the reason for the SSA state mission's failure to disburse the salaries, the officials said.
Fund for training of teachers and development of a number of schools are also withheld due to the fund crunch, they added.
