The protestors said that they were promoted as Incharge Masters/ Head Teachers in 2014 vide order no 197 DSEK of 2014 but are waiting for the confirmation of their new posting since then.
“We were supposed to receive a confirmation within six months from the Departmental Promotion committee (DPC),” a protestor said.
“We are working out of our districts in far flung areas and are still waiting for the conformation of our promotion to Incharge Masters” said Iftikhar Ahmad of Pulwama.
The teachers also said that teachers from Jammu province who were promoted in the same year have been confirmed.
“Our counterparts in Jammu who were promoted in the same year have been confirmed and are now senior to we people, this is a grave injustice on part of the government,” Ahmad said adding that they request the authorities to confirm their services at the earliest.
