A teacher who worked in a school for 13 years without being paid will finally get her dues – more than 25 years after her appointment.
The High Court has directed the school in Kolar Gold Fields(KGF) to pay her dues within three months failing which the tehsildar will seize the school properties, auction them and pay the pending salary. The Higher Education Department will calculate the salary due to the teacher who served the school without remuneration for 13.5 years.
L Vidyavathi worked as assistant mistress in Aravind Thayyar Girls High School, KGF, after her appointment in 1992. However, for the next 13 and a half years, she was not paid salary or any kind of remuneration. Her job was also not regularised.
