All India Primary Teachers Federation (AIPTF) has immense pleasure in launching its website for our members and teaching fraternity in India and globally. AIPTF is an affiliating body of Primary teachers’ organizations in the country. More than 2.3 million teachers are its members. The teachers unions in 24 states are affiliated to it.
It came into existence into the year 1954 to work effectively for defending and promoting teachers rights and interests and contributing towards achieving quality education for all. It has completed sixty years of existence in 2014 and it is one of the a few selected teachers’ unions in the country which are still surviving with many odds and leaving an impact on educational scenario of the country.
AIPTF also aims to unite all teachers working in the elementary level throughout India under one roof to foster the spirit of brotherhood/sisterhood and cooperation among all the members of the profession and to safeguard and promote the rights and privileges of primary teachers on all matters relating to their employment and conditions of service and create consciousness about their duties and responsibilities.

Homage to Sh. M. P. Shahi
The AIPTF noted with deep sorrow and pain the sad demise of Sh. Mahendra Prasad Shahi, Joint Secretary General-All India Primary Teachers’ Federation and General Secretary, Bihar Rajya Prathmik Shikshak Sangh on 2nd November 2019.
The AIPTF Office Bearers and staff members paid homage to him. They expressed that a vacuum has been created with his departure and AIPTF is in a state of shock and remembered his contributions, work done in the field of education, securing a better status for teachers in the country.
At this juncture, we the members of AIPTF, pray to God that his soul rests in peace and give strength to his family members and colleagues to bear this irreparable loss.

Due to neutral and callous attitude by the government, we are compelled to take the path of agitation once again since New Pension Scheme is creating a feeling of insecurity among the teachers and other state employees.
In our phase -3 of agitation for revival of old pension from block level and above in 25 state affiliates have started on 23 November 2019 and moving to national level.
In New Delhi a “Relay Strike” from 21st to 27th February 2020 in front of Parliament has been planned. During the Relay Strike, teachers from members’ affiliate will be protesting every day from 21 to 26th February 2020.
AIPTF has planned a mass rally on 27th February 2020 in which approximately 10,000 or more teachers are expected to arrive at the capital city to raise the demands.
Our demands are:
- Revival of Old Pension Scheme with immediate effect;
- All the contractual teachers working under different nomenclature like ShikshaMitra/GanaShikshak/NiyojitShikshak etc. should be regularised before 31st March 2021 and uniformity should be maintained in their salaries;
- Strengthen elementary education and ensure participation of Teachers’ organisations while finalising the National Education Policy 2019 to remove anti-teachers’ provisions;
- Remove the anomalies of Sixth Central Pay Commission and implement the recommendations of Seventh Central Pay Commission with effect from 1 January 2016 for the primary teachers throughout the country uniformly
- Teachers’ Eligibility Test throughout India should be conducted before the professional training
We appeal to like-minded organizations and colleagues to extend their support to our demands.
