New DelhI: Supreme Court has expressed grave concern over appointing temporary staff in teaching facilities.

A bench headed by Justice U.U. Lalit was hearing a Special Leave Petition (SLP) against a judgment of the Himachal Pradesh High Court where the court had quashed the appointment of teachers inducted by an school management committee.

"How long, how far will "Adhocism" continue as regards the teaching faculty? If teachers don't have job security, how will they discharge their duty of educating students, particularly in such areas?", Justice Ajay Rastogi asked.

The counsel representing Himachal Pradesh state government apprised the court that the state wished to challenge the impugned order of the High Court, and that a SLP would be filed shortly on behalf of the state. The counsel referred to a recent case wherein the apex court had rejected the challenge against the decision of the Himachal Pradesh Government to regularise teachers who were appointed temporarily.

On Thursday, Justice Lalit noted that while the emoluments payable to the petitioners are Rs. 10,000-15,000 per month, the salaries payable to the regular teachers were higher.

"This is probably why the state is also coming in challenge. It wants to keep the same budget," the bench said.

The matter was adjourned for further hearing on October 8.
