It is really a good news as the teachers who actively participated during the pandemic and sacrificed their lives will be given insurance cover and education directorate has been directed to furnish the information. Teachers who worked during the pandemic were extended and insurance cover of Rs.50 lakh in case of their death.
Recently, the government issued a letter to the state government employees and ZP. It was approved by inviting proposals from Group C and D employees. Even after that the teachers were not given any benefit. The services of many teachers have been taken invoking the Disaster Management Act. Therefore, the Maharashtra State Primary Teachers’ Committee had demanded that insurance cover should also be extended to the teachers working during the pandemic.
