Delhi HC granted two week’s time to 5 schools to pay salary arrears of teachers

The Delhi High Court has directed five schools run by the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) to pay their teachers salary arrears, within 2 weeks.


A two-judge bench comprising of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal said “there can be no justification for non-payment of salaries” when fees were being charged from the students.


The schools had stated that the fees could not be paid because students had accumulated fee arrears.

The bench dismissed the contention and gave the schools two weeks' time for the affected teachers to "positively clear up and pay all the arrears."


The order came on appeals lodged against a single-judge order of the High Court in which the interim relief was not given. The teachers of the five schools located at Fateh Nagar, Tilak Nagar, Nanak Piao, Hargobind Enclave, and India Gate claimed that they were not paid salaries since December 2019 and that the balance of Rs. 15,000/ were paid to them as an ad-hoc amount on April 23.

However, Hargobind Enclave School teachers also alleged that they have not been paying salary for the month of March, and School teachers near India Gate submitted that 85 percent of the salary has been paid in the month of January and nothing has been paid further.
