In the Chadha Committee Report the middle level teachers (Associate Professors) have been punished like middle class is punished in the society.
Honourable HRD minister is requested to consider this fact. The Associate Professor should be placed in PB 4 as per revised CPC. It is crystal clear that the old scale ending with Rs 18300/- would be placed in PB 4 and the increment is even higher i.e. Rs 420/- than other scales which have been considered for PB 4. Chadha commitee downgraded the post of READER! The committee should have recommended higher than CPC for READERS. A READER after 20 years of the service and a newly recruited Assistant Professor would sail in the same boat! On the other hand a newly selected Professor would get as much as 85-90% more salary than an old poor READER and the hike in per se salary is also 85-90%. I do not understand why the committee has recommended this? READERS might have done something wrong in the past with ........?, otherwise sometimes the hometake salary of a READER was more than a Professor during 4th pay commission. Now there would be a deep and wide gap between the salaries of READERS and Professors. READERS are in between a 'Lathi' and 'Bhint (wall)'. I think still natural justice is there. The UGC and HRD are requested to give as per 6th CPC to the READERS, not much is demanded.The age of retirement should not be more than 58 years which would make the country like a shining star on the globe. Every body knows that what an older people can do for the teaching and research.
