Nashik : The HSC examination results might not get affected this year as education minister Vinod Tawade on Wednesday assured the teachers that their longpending demands would be fulfilled, thereby bringing the `slow work’ protest to an end.

The junior college teachers had adopted a unique `slow work’ protest this year to press for their demands. The deci sion to end the protest was announced after a meeting between the office-bearers of the Maharashtra Rajya Kanishtha Mahavidyalayin Shikshak Mahasangh and an association of junior college teachers with education minister Vinod Tawade, finance minister Sudhir Mungantiwar and principal secretaries of the education and finance departments of Maharashtra on Wednesday .

State general secretary of the association, Sanjay Shinde said the education minister has given a written assurance on several demands.

“Our prominent demand was to allot recruitment letters, recognition and standard salaries to the teachers who came in after 2012. For this, the state government will hold a special individuallevel recognition camp between April 15 and 19 where the teachers recruited after May 2, 2012 will be given the letters and recognition,“ said Shinde.

Agroup of 599 teachers recruited between 2003 and 2011 will also reap the benefits of this camp.
