Decision on pay revision on 11 December?

Staff Reporter:
NEW DELHI: A delegation of teachers from the Indian National Teachers’ Congress (INTEC) led by Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president J. P. Agarwal met Union Human Resource Development Minister Arjun Singh on Saturday to press for early implementation of revised pay scales for university and college teachers.
“The Minister assured us that the decision regarding revised pay scales would be taken at the Union Cabinet meeting scheduled for December 11.
He also said that positive decisions will be taken on most of the demands raised by our delegation,” said Sanjay Kumar, the joint secretary of the Delhi University Teachers’ Association.
At a press conference on Friday, Mr. Agarwal introduced the INTEC panel contesting elections for membership of the Executive Council and the Academic Council of Delhi University. The elections are scheduled to take place on December 19.
INTEC has demanded that all readers and teachers in the Reader’s grade be placed in Pay Band-4.
“We feel there should be no downgrading of grade pay in any pay band. The parity between librarians and teachers should also not be violated and professorship should be introduced at colleges,” said Ashwini Shankar of Deshbandhu College faculty who is the INTEC candidate for the Executive Council.
Giving an overview of the INTEC agenda, Mr. Shankar said it was opposed to introduction of the semester system in colleges as the staff associations had “not been consulted” on the same.

Cabinet meeting cancelled.
News just came in that a meeting of the Union Cabinet scheduled for Thursday evening has been cancelled.

While no reasons were given officially, it came on a day when Parliament continued marathon discussions on the Mumbai terror attacks with both Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha dispensing with the Question Hour.

It is really disapponting for thousands of teachers across the country who were eagerly expecting a positive decesion on UGC Pay Commission implementation. Please be with us. We will try to provide information as and when available.
