After reports that a teacher worked in 25 schools simultaneously and earned over Rs 1 crore as salary in 13 months, the Uttar Pradesh government on Friday said a probe is on and “nothing has been confirmed so far”.

“Acting on media reports, Additional Director, Basic Education was ordered to probe the matter. Nothing has been confirmed so far. The name of a teacher has come to light…she is absconding now. It is being said that Rs 1 crore was paid as salary…This is not at all true. No such thing has been confirmed,” Director General School Education Vijay Kiran Anand told PTI.

Strict action will be taken if any teacher is found to be working as a proxy teacher in other schools,” the officer said.
