Teachers will soon receive money in their bank accounts through EFT, says the senior secretary of Primary and Mass Education Ministry

The teachers of government primary schools will soon receive salaries and allowances directly in their bank accounts through electronic funds transfer (EFT) via the government-to-person payment system. 

Teachers face a lot of problems due to payment of salaries and allowances by the traditional manual system. This measure will come into effect soon to alleviate the sufferings of teachers.

Asked about the matter, Md Akram-Al-Hosain, senior secretary of the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, said: “Teachers will no longer face any problems when getting salaries and allowances. The problem is being solved permanently.

“We have already discussed the matter with the Finance Division. Teachers will soon receive money in their bank accounts through EFT.”

Describing the lengthy process, Md Tasrif Ahmed, assistant teacher at Kathaltoli Government Primary School in Munshiganj’s Sirajdikhan upazila, said: “Sometimes we get our salaries and allowances later than usual as we use the traditional manual system.

“The headmaster makes a salary bill, then he signs it and also gets it signed by the president of the school’s managing committee. Then the bill is signed by the assistant upazila education officer, and the upazila education officer. 

“Afterwards, the salary bill has to be submitted to the office of the upazila accounts officer. The office approves the bill and sends it to the bank.

“Bank officials verify the bill and transfer the money to the teacher’s account. A teacher can withdraw his or her salary and allowances after the money is deposited in their respective accounts.”

Requesting anonymity, a teacher at a school in Chittagong said he got his salary and the bonus for the last Eid after the Eid had passed.

Salary-allowance is deposited in the bank between the 10th and 15th day of every month, he said, adding that this problem will be solved if the teachers are sent the money directly into their bank accounts through EFT.

Arrangements will also be made to send the salaries and allowances of the teachers of private educational institutions directly to their accounts through EFT, sources said.
