Teachers in Udaipur began their protest on 6th August 2018, under the banner of the Rajasthan Shikshak Sangh (Pragatisheel).
The teachers are fighting for fulfillment of their 10 demands. One of the principal demands is that of cancelling the new pension scheme (NPS) and restoring the old scheme.
The state administration had used the excuse of the Prime Minister passing through Udaipur to ban all demonstrations in the city. Despite this ban, teachers took part in the demonstration in large numbers. According to the President of Rajasthan Shikshak Sangh (Progressive), this protest movement will be intensified across the entire state.
