High Court asked private schools to implement CPC, know what is CPC
Delhi High Court has said that private schools should also implement the recommendations of the Sixth-Seventh Central Pay Commission and cannot deprive them of benefits citing a lack of funds.
Delhi High Court has said that private schools should implement the recommendations of the Sixth-Seventh Central Pay Commission (CPC). They must pay mandatory salaries along with other benefits to their teaching and non-teaching staff. Justice Chandradhari Singh said that employees of private schools have an inherent right to be paid salaries and emoluments as per the recommendations of the Pay Commission. Schools cannot cite a lack of funds to deny these benefits to their employees.
Justice Chandradhari Singh said that no school can demand a waiver of the recommendations by citing any reason. Unaided minority schools should also pay salaries and other benefits to the employees as per the recommendations of the pay commissions. The court passed the detailed order while hearing petitions by teaching and non-teaching staff of various private schools in Delhi. The petitions sought payment of Sixth-Seventh Pay Commission benefits and arrears along with other benefits.
The High Court directed the Delhi government to constitute High Powered Committees (HPCs) to monitor the implementation of the recommendations and guidelines of the Sixth-Seventh Pay Commission. These will be formed at the state and central levels. The Central Committee will be headed by the Education Secretary of Delhi. There will also be a representative of schools among its members.
