Markets in everything, the culture that is India

My investigation has revealed that there are 132 teachers who have paid between Rs 25,000 and Rs 50,000 for their own suspension.

Here is the full story and I thank Dilip Rao for the pointer.

So, what, like five bucks?

46.6 rupees to the dollar, so Rs 50,000 is a bit over $1,000 US. That's easily available information.

Anybody know the average elementary school salary in Upper Pradesh?

http://theredpencil.wordpress.com/2006/09/06/teacher-salaries-in-india/ is an old post that says "According to the 5th Pay Commission that dictate salaries to Central Schools like those run by the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, teachers salaries in India should be between 8000 (Kindergarten level) to 17500 (Post Graduate Teacher level). Many State Boards have salaries that are much lower. Many private schools employ teacher at a fourth of these rates- from my own experience in Punjab, teachers are paid between Rs. 3000-6000 at schools (leaving the premium schools aside) in several cities."

I remember a post here ( I think ) about how lucrative it is to be a suspended teacher in New York city . Perhaps some of them are pursuing other things while suspended . So some people gaming the system is a universal trait or particular to specific nations ?

@ Eh
"Uttar" means "North" in Hindi , so Upper Pradesh , though wrong
is not far off the mark.
