Tribhuvan University (TU) part-time teachers have demanded that they should be appointed on contract basis.

Speaking at a press meet organized by Nepal Part-Time Teachers' Association, the association's office-bearers complained that they were discriminated against in pay despite their equal contribution as their permanent counterparts and those hired on a contract basis.

"Part-time teachers' service and contribution to the TU is always on a par with the permanent teachers and those working on contract basis; so, they must be paid on parity basis," claimed Association Chairman Shashi Kumar Sharma. "TU part-time teachers are finding it hard to run daily life due to such discrimination."

Association General Secretary Narendra Prasad Bhandari said that they were planning to take to the street against such 'discrimination' from Thursday.

Ratna Rajya Campus part-time teacher Ghama Raj Luintel asserted that the TU could not discriminate against them in terms of salary and perks.

The TU pays its part–time teacher Rs 220 per period and also deducts 15 per cent tax from this. There are around 1420 part-time teachers across the country. RSS

    Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

    The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress. This may reopen a number of fundamental fault lines in modern macroeconomic thinking between theories that treat the financial system as irrelevant, or, at least, not central to the understanding of economic outcomes, and those that reserve a central role for financial intermediation.
