In order to deal with service matters related to higher secondary school teachers, the government has proposed to establish education tribunals across the country.
To hear petitions of aggrieved teachers, legislation would soon be enacted to establish education tribunals at state and national level. Talking about the same, Rajya Sabha MP, Shantaram Naik said that the issues should be brought to these tribunals only after all other remedies under respective services rules are exhausted. The tribunals will provide legal remedy to higher secondary school teachers, who only had the option of filing writ petition in the respective high courts until now. A bill on the subject passed by Lok Sabha is presently pending in the Rajya Sabha. The proposed legislation would also cover issues regarding affiliation to state universities.
