Odisha government set the minimum educational qualification of Sikshya Sahayaks

Bhubaneswar:30/11/17 The Odisha government today set the minimum educational qualification of Sikshya Sahayaks (SS) as Plus II along with CT/ D EI Ed instead of Matriculation earlier.

“The minimum qualification of SS has been fixed as Plus II with CT/ D EI Ed as prescribed by the National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE),” said a notification of School and Mass Education (S&ME) Department. According to the notification, the SSs are being declared as junior teachers after successful completion of three years of service, and subsequently after successful completion of three years, they are being absorbed as assistant teachers in the grade of Level-V of the elementary cadre.

Meanwhile, the Orissa Primary Education Programme Authority (OPEPA) has requested the S&ME department to include Shikshya Sahayaks (SSs) under the Orissa Education (Employees Provident Fund and ex-gratia benefit) Rules 2017.

If the government would execute the proposal of OPEPA, an extra-gratia of Rs 2 lakh will be paid to the next of kin of SS in case of death while in service and Rs 1.5 lakh in case of permanent incapacitation.

In a similar development, the entry level qualification of Junior Clerks in ministerial cadre of different district offices and other subordinate offices in the state has also been increased.

According to a notification issued by the General Administration (GA) Department, the State government has raised the entry level qualification from a ‘pass’ degree in Plus Two to a ‘pass’ in Plus Three examination.
