Supreme Court gives big relief to a retired teacher of Bihar, know what is the matter
Teachers teaching in government schools and colleges in Bihar often face conflict with other teachers. Sometimes in the name of salary and sometimes in the name of convenience. One such incident has come up in which the apex court has given a big verdict in the interest of the government teacher. Gopal Krishna Gokhale, a teacher at Bharat Mishra Sanskrit College in Salempur, Bihar, did not get a salary from appointment to retirement. Now a bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice MR Shah has ordered the government to pay the full salary.
Gokhale was appointed to the college in 1980 and retired in 2013. Gokhale's lawyers say that despite the order of the Supreme Court, the college management is not paying his dues. Another of his lawyers said that Gokhale's dues could not be paid due to a legal battle with another spokesperson. Along with Gokhale, Prem Kumari was also appointed as a spokesperson on 31 July 1980 in this college affiliated to Kameshwar Singh Darbhanga Sanskrit University. Prem Kumari was appointed to the post of history spokesperson.
Gokhale was also appointed on the same day by the management committee of the college. Prem Kumari said that Gokhale was the spokesperson for economics, which was not advertised. He also said that the appointment of Gokhale was never approved by the university. However, Gokhale had challenged the appointment of Prem Kumari, stating that she was not even a postgraduate at the time of her appointment. The registrar of the university had cancelled Gokhale's appointment and made it temporary. He challenged it in court. The inquiry took place on the court's order, after which the Vice-Chancellor of the University cancelled the appointment of Prem Kumari in 2013 and ordered the recovery of salary from her. However, she is relieved after this order of the Supreme Court.
