“Members’ contributions will be deducted directly at source through the Controller & Accountant General’s Department.
First deduction of premium will be done at the end of June 2018, and cover starts on 1st July 2018.” it said.
Meanwhile, the Union leaders who had been part of the supposed decisions for the deductions to be effected couldn’t inform their members, a situation many described as “a Usual Leadership Woes” at the Teacher Leadership Fronts.
