OSSTA demands RS 50 lakh insurance cover for teachers assigned to evaluate answer scripts

Cuttack: The Odisha Secondary School Teachers Association (OSSTA) on Tuesday demanded Rs 50 lakh insurance cover for teachers assigned to evaluate the answer scripts of this year’s matriculation examination.

OSSTA secretary Prakash Mohanty said the state government should announce the insurance cover before the resumption of the evaluation process from May 20.

The OSSTA also demanded that the number of evaluation centres be increased.

“In order to help the teachers travel to the evaluation centres amid the on-going lockdown, an evaluation centre should be opened in each of the 314 blocks of the state,” Mohanty said adding that there are only 60 evaluation centres across the state.
