THE STATE Cabinet today approved enhanced salary and allowances for the public undertakings, corporations, boards and autonomous bodies’ chairpersons and vice-chairpersons.

In another significant decision, the Cabinet gave its nod to a Higher Education Department proposal for regular appointment of teachers for the courses running under self-financing schemes at Devi Ahilyabai Vishwavidyalaya (DAVV), Indore. This would pave the way for other universities in the State to appoint teachers on regular basis unlike the ongoing practice of contractual appointments.

However, the varsities would have to bear the expenses on such appointments solely. The Cabinet meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, discussed mainly the unfinished the agenda of its previous meeting.

Briefing the newspersons about the decisions, Minister for Public Relations Narendra Singh Tomar said the salaries of the public undertakings, corporations, boards and autonomous bodies’ chairpersons and the vice-chairpersons would be Rs 4000 and Rs 3600 per month respectively. The protocol allowance would be Rs 5000 per month for the chairperson and Rs 3000 per month for the vice-chairperson. Similarly, the daily allowance outside the State would be Rs 120 and inside the state Rs 80 for both the functionaries.

Tomar informed that though the salary and the abovementioned allowances had been increased, the house allowances had been decreased in the proposal. The house allowance for the chairpersons had been fixed at Rs 8150 per month while that of vice-chairpersons at Rs 6750 per month. Earlier, they received roughly about Rs 10,000.

The minister was, however, not in a position to tell about the exact amount the State exchequer would incur against the expenses on the enhanced salaries and allowances.

He said establishment of seven divisional offices under the Directorate of Public Instructions was sanctioned. These offices had been abolished following establishment of District Government system. The decision to establish these offices was taken for more effective monitoring of the academic activities and the staff of the Education Department. These offices would be headed by Joint Directors.

The Cabinet endorsed the decision of giving re-appointment to the teachers who retired after November 1, 2005, till the end of academic session, that isv April 30, 2006.

The Cabinet accorded sanction for establishment of 17 new girls high schools at block level in tribal areas. It also sanctioned the posts for these schools, which would be set up at Jhabua, Khargone, Betul, Chhindwara, Seoni, Mandla, Dindori, Balaghat, Shahdol, Hoshangabad, Khandwa, Burhanpur and Sheopur.

The Cabinet accorded sanction for establishment of 50-seat new post-matric hostels in five districts - Anuppur, Khandwa, Umaria, Burhanpur and Sheopur. Sanction for creation of 25 posts was also accorded for these hostels. These include five posts of superintendent, 15 class IV posts and five posts of sweeper.

The Cabinet accorded sanction for 20 posts of superintendent, 60 class IV employees on daily wages and 20 part time sweepers for 20 new pre-matric girls hostels. Similarly, 600 posts were sanctioned for converting 150 departmental primary schools to Ashram schools in areas inhabited by primitive tribes.
