    Para teachers get monthly honorarium. It is not payment of salary. So how can there be leave without pay? Can honararium be cut short? Engagement of contractual teachers is against RTE ACT, 2009. It clearly speaks of quality education by regular teacher. Can a civilised govt. expect quality education from meagerly paid para teachers? Who has invented the term para teacher? Teaching is not like other profession where the term para can be applied. Instead Sir or Madam if the students call a teacher para-sir or para -madam, would it sound good?I wonder whether we are living in a civilised society. Does RTI ACT says to employ para teacher?
