JAMMU — The Administrative Council (AC), chaired by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, has granted approval for a significant 50% increase in honorarium for 2417 Rehbar-e-Khel (ReK) physical education teachers of the Youth Services and Sports Department in the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

During the meeting, attended by prominent officials including Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor, and Atal Dulloo, Chief Secretary, the decision to enhance the honorarium was ratified.

The move follows recommendations from a High-Powered Committee, led by the Chief Secretary, established for this purpose in 2021. The committee had proposed a 50% hike in honorarium for Rehbar-e-Khel teachers, a recommendation now endorsed by the Administrative Council.

The increase in honorarium aims to incentivize and motivate ReK teachers, encouraging them to further promote and popularize sports activities within schools across the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
