The primary teachers of the Odisha Primary Teachers Association (OPTA) are gearing up to stage demonstrations around the State Assembly on February 7.
Around 50,000 teachers are expected to take part in the protest.
The association demands 25 percent pay hike for primary teachers, salary to be revised to Rs. 2800 grade pay as per the 7th pay commission, include pension scheme, change in plans for transfer of primary teachers and contractual teachers to get regularised.
The OPTA said the government has been deaf to their demands after repeated requests.
