All the three associations, under the banner of Youthamancha, Assam, (regarding the Sixth Pay Commission) asked the State government to make public the report of the Anomalies Committee of the Pay Commission within December 5, 2010.

After a series of protest activities throughout the State till January 22, 2010, the graduate teachers of higher secondary-level schools would go on a comprehensive non-cooperation movement for an indefinite period.

�The graduate teachers of the secondary-level schools of the State are under the pay band two which also cover the fourth grade employees. Showing some respect to the teaching community, the State government, like the Central Government, should introduce a separate pay band for the teachers,� Rajen Sarma of the Assam High School Teachers� Association said.
