The salaries of PGT would go up from Rs 21,000 to Rs 34,000 while the TGT salaries will go up from Rs 18,000 to Rs 33,000. And the assistant teacher's salary would be increased from Rs 16,000 to Rs 32,000 a month, Mr. Sisodia said.
"Now 'guest teachers' will be able to lead a dignified life," said Manish Sisodia as reported by Indo-Asian News Service. "It is a move towards providing quality education," he added.
There were demands from the 'guest teachers' who are working on contractual basis for the salary increase for a long time.
"We really struggled hard to get this (through). I am glad it has finally happened." Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal commented on the development.
