Computer teachers of government schools staged a protest here on Sunday against non-disbursal of salaries to them for the past nine months.

A total of 2,622 computer teachers had been appointed on August 1, 2013, in government schools of Haryana. The contractual appointments were made through three private companies. These teachers have not been paid their salary since their joining the job.

The protesting teachers submitted a memorandum addressed to the state government with the deputy commissioner.

Teachers' leader Suresh Nain said, "Instead of giving us salaries, the private companies are asking us to pay `24,000 as security. The companies have collected money from many teachers ranging between `8,000 and `24,000. This is illegal and uncalled for because the government never authorised them to charge this money from us."

Nain said that they had met the education minister and the chief secretary in this regard but to no avail.
