According to Press Trust of India, 2450 lower primary teachers, 2532 upper primary teachers and 844 Hindi teachers will be included in various categories of teachers whom are going to be benefitted from the decision.
Sangma said that around Rs 63.34 crore would be spent for implementing the proposed enhanced grant-in-aid for increasing the teachers' salary.
The state government, earlier, had hiked the salary of secondary and higher secondary adhoc school teachers. That decision by Sangma government resulted in agitation by teachers of government-aided schools.

This decision of salary hike of 7000 teachers, according to the chief minister, was a culmination of the assurance made in the budget session of the assembly.
The teachers then protested near Raj Bhavan demanding 100 per cent enhancement of salary for adhoc lower and upper primary teachers as well as for Hindi teachers.
