Letter to P.M. from AIFUCTO

To 13.12.2008
Dr. Manmohan Singhji Camp: New Delhi Hon’ble Prime Minister of India New Delhi
Hon'ble Pradhan Mantri Ji, Greetings from the AIFUCTO, the Federation of organizations of university and college teachers of India. The AIFUCTO has been steadfastly working, with a great degree of commitment to uphold and strengthen national integration, a pluralistic India and quality higher education. I am now forced to submit to you that lakhs of university and college teachers of India, who have been anxiously awaiting the implementation of Revised Pay Scales for them, are deeply perturbed over the inordinate delay in this regard. Hon'ble Sir, you are aware that every other section of the employees- including Central Government employees following VI Pay Commission Report. Hon'ble Judges and the staff of all levels of Judiciary, public sector employees and others have already been given revised scales of pay, whereas in the case of implementing the Chadha Committee Report there is long delay and dithering. You are further aware Sir, that the revision of scales for college and university teachers involves two stages of implementation, with states taking their own time to execute the Central Govt. Orders.
I write to convey that 5 lakh college and university teachers all across our country are anxiously expecting your kind personal intervention leading to a very expeditious decision resulting in a fair, uniform and mandatory implementation all over India. We remember your kind intervention during our last Dharna Program in New Delhi leading to the solution.
As General Secretary of AIFUCTO I submit our deep expectations.
Yours truly,
Asok Barman General Secretary-AIFUCTOE-mail:aifucto@rediffmail.com
