Tamil Nadu teachers’ hunger strike has entered fourth day. These teachers are demanding equal pay for all those holding same position for the same qualification. It is due to the change in the pay commission that teachers who joined before June 2009 are being paid Rs 8370 as a basic salary, but those who joined after June 2009 are being paid Rs 5200. The teachers are protesting against this disparity. Meanwhile, 116 teachers were hospitalised after their health deteriorated.
