The Education Minister of Tripura has recently highlighted the situation of the government as it is out of funds and are unable to pay the salaries of the Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan Teachers whose termination is extended for six months.

The Minister, Tapan Chakraborty has written a letter to the HRD Ministry stating that the state government is out of funds to pay the salaries of the educators under Sarv Shiksha Abhiyan(SSA).

The letter said the expenditure would have to be shifted to the state funds "to the tune of teacher vacancies in the state" indicating that SSA teacher's salary wouldn't be funded by the Centre if there were vacancies in sanctioned teaching posts under the state government.

Chakraborty has termed the decision “unilateral” and asked the ministry to fully release the amount approved for the scheme by the Project Advisory Board (PAB)-the monitoring authority for SSA.

The minister also requested the Centre to continue providing funding according to the existing pattern of the central flagship scheme to protect educational interests of children of Tripura, “who come mostly from SC, ST, minorities and OBC background”.
