Hyderabad: Junior lecturers have been roped in to evaluate the Telangana intermediate examination answer scripts as a majority of the colleges in Hyderabad and RangaReddy districts are owned by Seemandhra corporate groups.
With only these lecturers going on strike, the Telangana Junior Lecturers Association is suspecting foul play to disrupt the Telangana Inter evaluation process.
The board has been making efforts to release Inter first year results on April 22 and second year results by April 29. However, the flash strike by evaluators demanding payment of Rs 30 per answer script as against Rs 12 being paid now has disrupted the evaluation process.
“Not just hike in remuneration, they are also demanding health cards, accident insurance, death benefits, minimum wages, salaries for 12 months in a year and job security. All these demands have nothing do with Inter valuation duties. We demand that the government order an inquiry and initiate action against corporate colleges for deliberately disrupting the evaluation,” said Dr P. Madhusudhan Reddy, president, Telangana Inter JAC.
The JAC also questioned the rationale behind not demanding a similar hike for evaluation of AP Inter exams though it continues to pay Rs 12 per script.
Spot valuation of the Telangana state Intermediate exams in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts have been hit with evaluators boycotting duties demanding increase in remuneration.
With this, the plans of the Telangana Board of the Intermediate Education to release the results by the third week of this month are likely to be affected.
Telangana Inter JAC comprising evaluators from Telangana see a conspiracy by the “Seemandhra corporate colleges lobby” and demanded that the Telangana government initiate action against them.
Junior lecturers of private colleges were roped in for evaluation.
