Non-teaching staff to get arrears
New Delhi, October 26The non-teaching staff of the UGC funded institutes now have added reason for cheer on Diwali as the apex body has decided to give them 40 per cent of their arrears on the account of implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations.
The arrears would be provided for the period from January 2006 to August 31. The rest would be paid during the next financial year, the UGC said. It has sent a letter in this regard to the registrars of all central universities and deemed universities and Delhi colleges getting non-plan grants from it.
Employees other than teachers would get the payment for the “relevant period”, it said in the letter. The arrears should be paid in cash in two instalments.
“The central universities, deemed universities, Delhi colleges may make ad-hoc payment of arrears towards the first instalment to its non-teaching employees whose pattern of emolument’s structure are identical to those of the employees of central government,” the letter said. — PTI
