The drop in global commodity prices has been blamed for the cut in teachers leave fares this year.
The Teaching Service Commission say not all teachers will receive their entitlements on time.
Those affected will receive theirs once the situation improves.
The total appropriation according to the 2015 budget is over K33 million.
Of this, 70 per cent has been remitted to provincial treasuries, while 30 per cent will be remitted later.
According to the Teaching Service Commission, there are 52,000 teachers serving in the country.
Teachers leave fares have been a very sensitive issue and as much as possible the teaching service commission is doing its best to address this.
Chairman of the Teaching Service Commission, Baran Sori, called on all teachers to understand the current global situation and cooperate with authorities to ensure a smooth disbursement of entitlements.
