Delhi High Court ordered parity of salary of private and Govt. aided schools

The teachers of unaided private schools are entitled to same pay and emoluments as those of government schools, the Delhi high court has held. Justice A K Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw upheld the singlejudge’s order directing Rukmini Devi Jaipuria School, Rajpura Road, to pay arrears of salary to its teachers with effect from January one, 1996.

Directing the school to pay the arrears in four weeks, the bench also imposed a cost of Rs. 30,000 on it.
The court dismissed the school’s argument that the pay commission recommendations are only applicable to the government-aided schools and not to private schools.
The court accepted the contention of Ashok Agarwal, the counsel for theteachers, that it’s a travesty of justice that the teachers are denied their lawful salary without any justification.
The court also held that the employees of all unaided recognised private schools are entitled to benefits of pay and emoluments from January 1, 1996,the date the fifth pay commission recommendations became applicable and the schools cannot deny or delay the same on the ground that it could not recover fee from the students.
