No Affidavit For Teachers

Odisha Government's provision for compulsory submission of affidavits to avail grant-in-aid facility has been waived.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has taken a decision in this regard looking at the demands of the different teachers' bodies continued demonstration in the Capital City.
According to a Press Release from CMO, the teachers will not file affidavit, however they will have to give in writing about the cases they filed in courts, so that the State Government will be aware about such cases.
The demonstrating teachers alleged that the affidavit for grant-in-aid was a violation of fundamental rights, as although it promises financial benefits, the provision also prevents them from staging any kind of protests in future.
