Associate Professor for Colleges

The para (ix) of the Press Release mentions that " those who are presently working as Lecturer(Selection Grade) or Reader shall continue to be so designated till they are selected for the post of Associate Professor." Further it goes like this-
"The Associate Professors have been placed in the Pay Band of Rs. 37,400-67,000 with Grade Pay of Rs. 9,000. While, under the existing scheme, teachers without Ph.D. could rise up to the post of Lecturer (Selection Grade), they can now go up to the level of Associate Professor, based on the prescribed selection process"
Many of our friends in colleges have raised alarm over the word " prescribed selection process". Chaddha committee has prescribed process for selection of Associate Professors.
Although, detailed guideline is expected to be laid down by UGC in respect of selection process and composition of selection committee, the PRC has reviewed these aspect and made few suggestions in respect of CAS. PRC recommended that:
"Since opportunities for research work in most colleges are practically non-existent and teachers have heavy classroom teaching workload, it is recommended that for college teachers , greater emphasis may be laid on actual classroom teaching, holding tutorials, conducting examinations and evaluating answer scripts and lesser emphasis on research work while considering them for promotion under CAS."
It shows now clearly that any reader/lecturer (SG) who completes three years of service in the pay scale of 12000-18300 on or after 1.1.2006 cannot be denied PB4, . So, whoever has completed 3 years of service as reader/lecturer (SG) shall become Assoc. Prof. and shall be placed i PB4 with AGP of 9000.

Dear Dr.Mukthinath,
Thanks for your service, your site has become the ultimate page for people like us to get the updated news on UGC scales. Unlike many other blog sites you do not speculate any rumors just for the sake of attention. Thanks once again. By the way when is it likely to get all these processses completed and notified?.

Though chadha recommended to maintain parity between Librarians/ Directors of Physical education with Other Teachers in all aspects, It is very unhappy to note that the MHRDs announcement of disparity in the Retirement age. At each and every time of the pay revision the MHRD announces some disparity between Teachers and Librarians/Physical Directors and then rectifies them after the objections raised by the Teacher Organisations. It has become a routine one. But it is very amazing that why the parity in retirement age maintained in the previous years is denied now! Only solution for putting end to these confusions is the CHANGE OF DESIGNATION.

What will the eligibility and promotion for medical teachers? What will be the staus of readers promoted through CAS after 1/1/2006? will they be associate professors now or after three years in grade of 8000. Will they have to go through the selection process?

Thx for such a ready reference. I also feel that a teacher of having Ph d degree more than 3 years in the scale of 12000-18000 should be placed as associate professor.also their research background has to be taken into account.
