This is to convey our grave concern with regard to the problems being faced by Rehbar-e-Khel Physical Education teachers appointed in January 2019 through district-wise selection committees designated by the government in this regard. The appointments were made by the committees after fulfilling all the formalities and after observing all recruitment rules. It may not be out of place to mention here that almost 2,750 Rehbar-e-Khel teachers so appointed are highly qualified with PG, MPhil and PhD degrees. But they are facing tremendous problems on account of paltry monthly remuneration. The government from top to bottom is aware that we are being paid Rs 100 per day on account of salary, which does not suffice for even basic needs.
In this regard a delegation of the United Front of Rehbar-e-Khel Teachers headed by President Mr Sabzar, Gen Secretary Javid Iqbal, and Mudasir Muzzafer met various Union ministers including Hon’ble Minister PMO Jatinder Singh Ji. They were apprised of the miseries being faced by Rehbar-e-Khel Teachers in Jammu and Kashmir (UT). All the Hon’ble ministers gave a patient hearing and assured the delegation that all the issues shall be resolved at an earliest.
The erstwhile Lt Governor, Jenab Murmu, had constituted a committee in order to revise the policy in February 2020 but nothing has been heard till date in this regard. I on behalf of United Front of Rehbar-e-Khel teachers request the authorities through this medium to kindly take immediate steps/ measures with regard to regularisation of our services so that our worries and anxieties are set at rest.
With highest regards, Syed Aijaz Ul Haq REK teacher and PhD scholar
