Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court has clarified that an employee of a private educational institution who has been appointed to an aided post will be entitled to his service period after the date of such approval for fixation of pension. This is in tune with provisions under Section 3 of the AP Private Aided Educational Institutions Employees (Regulation of Pay) Act, 2005, the court said. This has given relief to retired teachers of St. Anthony’s Girls High School,

Secunderabad, who approached the High Court in 2001 seeking directions to the government and school management to grant pension and the benefits after taking into consideration their entire service and to grant annual interest at the rate of 18 per cent on the amounts due to them.

 

The petitioners were appointed between 1959 and 1965 in St. Anthony’s School as secondary and assistant teachers on grant-in-aid basis.

After retirement, they were denied the revision of pay scales, including regular increments and retirement benefits on the ground that their posts were not aided.

Justice T. Amarnath Goud made it clear that once an employee’s appointment to a grant-in-aid post was approved, such employee is entitled to count the service rendered after the date of approval for the purpose of fixation and pension.

While allowing the petitions, the court made it clear that the petitioners were entitled to 10, 15 and 20 years scales for determining their pension and pensionary benefits.

The court directed the respondents to compute the pension and pensionary benefits payable to the petitioners and make the consequential payment within two months.
