A delegation of Government Teachers Union (GTU) on Wednesday met the Director Public Instructions (DPI)(Schools) Upkar Singh regarding the implementation of extended timings under the RTE act.

President,GTU,Dr Vinod Sharma,said that a delegation met the DPI (S) and apprised him of all the difficulties that teachers will face if new timings get implemented.

The delegation held that schools lack infrastructure for teachers,that there are security issues involved during late hours and it will be difficult for couples teaching in different schools.

Moreover,Upkar Singh was also informed that this clause is not implemented in New Delhi schools,in the states of Punjab,Haryana and Himachal Pradesh. Teachers have asked the authorities to give them more time to get prepared for these new timings. DPI(S) assured them that their problems will be conveyed to the top authorities. Under this new clause,teachers have to spend 45 hours in a week in the schools.
