Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has decided to utilise the services of Anganwadi teachers in the proposed KG to PG education system.
Addressing Anganwadi teachers at the Secretariat here on Saturday, the chief minister said that Anganwadi workers had vast knowledge on how to teach to tiny tots and their services would be used for KG to PG education system. Rao said that the Anganwadi workers and helpers would also be given other jobs based on their qualification and service. He assured that all vacant Anganwadi supervisor posts would be filled with Anganwadi workers only.
Noting that Anganwadi teachers and workers were not getting their salaries every month, Rao said that the present salaries would be hiked and they would be paid regularly without delay in future. The increased salaries would be paid from March onwards, the chief minister said.
The living standards of Anganwadi workers and teachers would improved and they would be involved in the developmental programmes at village and mandal levels.
The chief minister also said that health insurance cover would be extended to anganwadi workers. Besides Aasara pensions and food security cards will also be given to them, he said adding that the amount given for cooking food at Anganwadi centres would also be increased.
