Siraha, October 2

Teachers and staff working in various offices of Naraha Rural Municipality, Siraha, are yet to receive their last three months’ salary because the village council meeting could not be held till date.

The monthly salary, along with Dashain allowance for teaching, non-teaching and other staffers, was halted after the rural municipality could not hold the village council meeting even though the festivals have begun.

Chairman Ram Saran Yadav said the rural municipality could not organise the village council meeting due to internal dispute. “We have been holding talks with the Financial Comptroller General’s Office for the same,” he informed. Yadav further added that they would manage to release the salaries of teachers and other staffers.

Chief Administrative Officer Sumitra Lama of the rural municipality said they were facing problems as the village council meeting was yet to be held.

“The authority concerned is yet to give the responsibility for financial transaction,” she added. Lama said that they have been holding discussion on the issue.

As many as 200 teachers and staffers in education, health, agriculture, livestock among other offices in the rural municipality have not got their salary.

The teachers and staffers looked sad after they did not receive salary along with Dashain allowance before the festivals.

Head teacher Ram Narayan Mandal of Basic School at Nahara Rural Municipality-3 said that he was fed up with teachers calling him. “The problem has to be resolved soon,” he urged.
