To honour the teaching fraternity of the valley, Kashmir business class announced a special package for Teachers Day in Kashmir on Saturday-September 5.

Teachers in Kashmir along with their families can enjoy their favourite feast at any restaurant across the Valley at discounted rates. Not only this, the teacher could also avail discount on travel for the day.

Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industries, Kashmir Hotel and Restaurant Associations and Kashmir Hotel and Restaurant Owners Federation announced this offer after the approval of the J&K Education Department.

“The initiative is aimed at giving respect to the teacher community,” said KCCI president Sheikh Ashiq.

“We discussed the idea of serving teachers on a discount rate on Teacher Day with the Director, School Education, Kashmir. He liked the initiative and gave his nod,” Sheikh Ashiq added.

It was for the first time that the business community had come forward to show respect towards the teaching community.

“Teachers can visit any hotel or restaurant along with their family and enjoy any feast or ‘wazwan’ at a 10 per cent discounted rate. At the time of billing, they will just have to show their school identity card,” Ashiq said.

The School Education Department has also requested the Transport Department to provide teachers discount on travel on Saturday. “We want teachers to go out and enjoy the day along with their families,” said an official of the Education Department.

Director, School Education, Kashmir, Shah Faesal said the initiatives would help ensure respect for the teachers. “This initiative is part of the Education Department’s campaign to restore the dignity of teachers,” the Director said. (With Inputs from The Tribune)
