Secondary Grade Teacher : Rs.5470-12385
It has been stated that the Secondary Grade Teachers have been deprived of the advantage of two increments in the earlier fixations on account of their pay being fixed with the minimum of the scale instead of one stage above the minimum in the revised pay scales. Stating this, a number of Teachers Associations requested for assigning the various pay scales for the category at Rs.12550-28370, Rs.15610-36800,Rs.9900-21550, Rs.11660-38450, Rs.8225-19615, Rs.12180-31500, Rs.12100-32440.
The other requests are the following:
1. Introduction one more stage under Automatic Advancement
Scheme and assigning special Grades of SPP-I and SPP-II
without insisting on the required qualifications.
2. Sanction of Special pay to those handling higher classes.
3. Rectification of anomalies in fixing pay scale of Secondary
Grade Teachers on account of revision in 1999 and 2005.
According to A.P. School Education Subordinate Service Rules issued in G.O.Ms.No.538, Education dated 20-11-1998, appointment to this post is
by direct recruitment and also by transfer from other categories in Class-III of the Education Sub-ordinate Service Rules. The minimum qualification
prescribed is a pass in Intermediate and Teachers Training Certificate ssued by the Commissioner for Govt. Examinations or its equivalent. This categoryforms feeder category to the post of School Assistant.This category has represented to the earlier PRCs seeking parity with Senior Assistant, Librarians of Junior Colleges and Librarian (SCERT). The
same has not been accepted. The following pay scales have been assigned to the categories of S.G.B. Teachers, School Assistant, Senior Assistant,Librarians of Junior Colleges and Librarian (SCERT) in successive PRCs.
The overall approach to the improvement of the scales of the teachers
has been discussed in detail elsewhere in the report. The Commission is
unable to agree for pay scales on par with teachers of Central Government.
The relative parities between the scales of Central Government and State
Government employees have been discussed elsewhere in the report (Volume-I). The Commission considers that the pay scale of Secondary Grade Teacher is to be improved and accordingly assigns the scale of Rs.10900-31550 (Rs.6195-14175) an improvement by two stages.The other requests relating to introduction of one more stage has been taken note of and is being addressed in the Automatic Advancement Scheme encompassing all cadres of Government employees.
Language Pandit Grade-II : Rs.5470-12385
It is stated that the Language Pandit Grade-II was in a higher scale as
compared to Secondary Grade Teacher upto 1978 revision. In the wake of
introduction of regrouped pay scales in 1982, he was given a pay scale on par  with Secondary Grade Teachers. Hence the request now is for higher pay scale than Secondary Grade Teachers.Another request is for introduction of the proposed pay scales of Rs.12550-28370, Rs.15610-36800, Rs.9900-21550, Rs.11660-38450, Rs.8225-19615, Rs.12180-31500, Rs.12100 -32440.The third request is for sanction of SPP-II scale without insisting on
prescribed qualifications.According to A.P. School Education Subordinate Service Rules G.O.Ms.No.538, Education, dated 20-11-1998, appointment of Language Pandit Gr-II is by direct recruitment or by transfer from other categories of Class- III employees of State Government. The qualifications prescribed for both the methods are Oriental title with Pandit training in the relevant language. The rules also stipulate that candidates with B.A. in the relevant language as one the optional subjects and Pandit training or its equivalent or B.Ed., could also be appointed.This category has represented to the earlier PRCs seeking parity with Senior Assistant, Librarian of Junior Colleges and Librarian (SCERT). The same has not been accepted. The following pay scales have been assigned tothe S.G.B. Teachers, School Assistant, Senior Assistant, Librarian of Junior Colleges and Librarian (SCERT) in successive PRCs.
The request of Language Pandit Grade-II for parity with Language
Pandits Grade-I has not been accepted by the PRC 2005 as qualifications
cannot be the sole basis for determining the pay scales. One is a feeder
category to the other. The Language Pandits Grade-II has parity with SGB
Teachers in successive PRCs.
The commission recommends the pay scale of Rs.10900-31550
(Rs.6195-14175) for the category of Language Pandit Grade-II. This is an
improvement of two stages.
Language Pandit Grade-I : Rs.7200-16925
The request on be half of Language Pandit Grade-I, is for a higher
scale in the range of Rs.14480-33800, Rs.20380-48020, Rs.13100-30500,
Rs.15290-53300, Rs.10845-25470, Rs.17010-42860, Rs.16250-37650,
School Assistant : Rs.7200-16925

No anomaly has been pointed out. It is represented that School
Assistants have longer working hours than other categories of teachers in the same pay scales. A comparison is also drawn with Teachers of Central
Government Schools. The pay scales suggested for the post are Rs.14480-
33800, Rs.20380-48020, Rs.13100-30500, Rs.15290-53300, Rs.10845-
25470,Rs.17010-42860, Rs.16250-37650 and Rs.15860-42440.

Headmistress Grade-II : Rs.9285-21550
(In Government and Z.P. High
Schools (Formerly Head Masters
of Secondary Schools)

Rs.18810-43925, Rs.25070-59050, Rs.17150-40500, Rs.20000-67670,
Rs.10825-25470, Rs.22880-53190, Rs.18150-42000, Rs.20090-50730.
This category forms the feeder category for the posts of Deputy
Educational Officer/ Gazetted Head Master Grade-I / Head Mistress Grade-I /Parishad Educational Officer/ Assistant Director (non formal Education) /
Special Officer (Oriental Studies).

It may perhaps be desirable to have only one category of Gazatted Head Master / Gazetted Head Mistress.The Commission, therefore, assigns a pay scale of Rs.18030-43630(Rs.10285-24200) for the category of Gazatted Head Master / Gazetted Head Mistress Grade-I along with Gazatted Head Master / Gazetted Head Mistress Grade-II.
