In an effort to smoothen the disbursement of salary of all the teachers and staff working in the Madhya Pradesh Education Department, the state government has decided to disburse their salaries online.
"With this the principals of higher secondary schools who had been doing salary related work in the capacity of disbursal officers would be relieved and be able to pay more attention towards the works related to academics in their respective schools," Madhya Pradesh Rajya Shiksha Kendra Commissioner Manoj Jhalani said.
A total of 3,125 principals of higher secondary schools had been doing salary-related work manually for 10 to 12 days a month, reports IANS quoting Jhalani.
Now with the salary system being computerised, grievances about delays and difficulties in the disbursement of salary would also come to an end, he said.
Jhalani also pointed out that under the new arrangement, pay bills would be prepared online, eliminating the tedious exercise of preparing employees' pay bills afresh every month.
Besides, the staff including teachers, principals and clerks would be able to surf details about their salary, pay slip and annual emoluments whenever they wish to.
Another benefit of the online facility, the Commissioner said, would be that the department would also have access to school-wise data of posts, budget and expenditure.
This online information would be available all the time at district, division and state levels.
Jhalani said that computerisation of teachers' service book would be taken up in the next phase and the seniority list of the department too would be made available on the web site.
