VCs, CSs directed to implement 6th pay panel recommendations
The much awaited UGC 6th Pay Commission recommendations has been finally notified by the Union HRD ministry on Wednesday vide notification no 1-32/2006-U.I(1) with a direction to all vice-chancellors and chief secretaries of all state governments to implement the decision as a composite scheme with effect from January, 2006. As per the notification, the revised pay and revised rates of DA shall be effective from January, 2006, and all other allowances such as HRA and advance increments shall take effect from September, 2008. Payment of arrears up to 40 per cent of the total shall be made during the current financial year (2008-09). The notification further states that the Central assistance shall be limited to 80 per cent of the extra burden from January, 2006 to March, 2010 and shall be subject to the condition that the entire scheme of revision of payscales, together with all the conditions attached there, and other guidelines shall be implemented by the state government and universities and colleges without any modification except the date of implementation. The age of superannuation has been already enhanced vide Central HRD notification in view of shortage of teachers and to attract talent to teaching profession and also to retain teachers in service for a longer period. This forms part of the composite package. Welcoming the Central government notification, the Joint Action Committee (JAC) of FUTAB and FUSTAB said that the Central government has fulfilled its promises and has accommodated views of AIFUCTO with regard to revision in scale of incumbent readers and post of professors in colleges. It , however, criticised the HRD for not accepting the Chaddha Committee recommendation for 100 per cent differential grants to states and also that those appointed after Jan 1, 04, have been denied the pension facility. The JAC has demanded that the age of retirement should immediately be enhanced as per provisions of Section 67 of Bihar Universities Act, 1976, and Section 64 of the Patna University Act, 1976, amended in 2006. The government had also promised the high court that the moment a change in retirement age is notified by the Central government on recommendation of the UGC, it will act as per the amended provisions. It further said that when the government is inclined to bear 100 per cent pay revision burden for its own employees, it should not have difficulty in implementing the 6th Pay Revision for teachers as it has to shoulder only 20 per cent of the burden.
Mehta Committee Expected to submit report within month
NEW DELHI: The pay review committee which was set up to recommend new pay scales for faculty of central technical institutions like IITs and IIMs,
will now also suggest revised salaries for their physical education teachers and library staff. The committee, headed by former director of Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, Prof Govardhan Mehta, has been entrusted with the work of recommending salary packets for a few thousand physical education teachers and library staff. "This additional responsibility has been given to the committee. The committee has already met and is expected to submit its report within a month," a top HRD Ministry official said. The committee was formed three months ago to study and recommend new pay packets for the faculty members of central technical institutions like IITs and IIMs. Before submitting its recommendations, the committee will make a comprehensive study of recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission and the Chadha committee on university and college teachers. The committee is also speaking to faculty members of the IITs, IIMs, IIITs and NITs to consider their views before recommending an ideal pay package. The committee is expected to address the major issue of retention of teachers and attracting more scholars to join teaching and research at these premier institutes.
Government’s clarification regarding implementation of the decision on revision of pay scale of teachers in Universities and Colleges
Government’s attention has been drawn to a news item appearing in certain sections of the print media alleging delay on the part of the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development and the UGC in implementing the decision on revision of pay scale of teachers in Universities and Colleges. It is clarified for general information that the MHRD has already issued Government’s decision vide communication No.1-32/2006-UII/UI(i) to UGC on 31.12.2008 revising pay with effect from 1.1.2006 and some of the service conditions of teachers and equivalent positions. Copies of the said communication were endorsed, among others, to Chief Secretaries of State Governments with clear advice in regard to what the State Governments are expected to do in order to be eligible for Central assistance. In view of this, no separate order is required to be issued to State Governments. Details of the scheme are also available on Ministry’s website. The scheme contains a provision that the revised pay and applicable allowances as also arrears up to 40% of the total arrears could be paid to all eligible beneficiaries under the scheme, pending issuance of regulations by the UGC. The UGC has, in the meantime, approached MHRD for guidance for preparation of fitment tables for various categories of incumbents. The finalisation of fitment tables does not stand in the way of teachers getting revised pay based on an undertaking to be given by them which has also been stated in paras 10 and 11 of the Ministry’s Orders. While the fitment tables are being finalised in consultation with the Ministry of Finance, many teachers are reported to have already received their salary under the revised scheme, based on ad hoc fixation of pay.
Salary hike mooted for teachers in IITs,IIM
A committee looking into pay review for teachers of technical institutes like IITs and IIMs has recommended pay hikes to stem the dismal situation of increasing vacancies.
The Govardhan Mehta Pay Review Committee has recommended higher salaries than University teachers for the faculties of central technical institutions such as IITs, IIMs, NITs, IIITs and IISER. It has also suggested new incentives, including study trips abroad and better research facilities, to discourage the faculty from joining private companies.
The report was submitted to the human resource ministry (HRD) recently.
Prof Govardhan Mehta, honorary professor of the Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, said: " incentives.
It said research facilities and study trips abroad were some such ways to make teaching at the technical institutions attractive.
"We have looked at it holistically, rather than looking at just the salary scale components," Meheta said.
The committee submitted its report after referring to both the Sixth Pay Commission and the Chadha Committee on salary hikes for university and college teachers.
The Chadha Committee had recommended a 70 per cent hike in pay for college teachers.
The report was submitted to the HRD ministry last year, but is yet to be implemented.
HRD ministry sources ascribed the delay to the "incompetence" of the University Grants Commission (UGC).
"After the notification, the UGC was expected to prepare the pay structures and issue the regulations. But we found it had bungled up in a major way in preparing the pay structures.
So, we had to take it over from them and prepare it ourselves," a source at the ministry said.
He added it was in the final stages and in all likelihood would be placed before the finance ministry within a week.
University and college teachers had resorted to strikes last year, protesting the delay in submission of the Chadha Committee's report.
The Govardhan Mehta Committee, was expected to submit its report by January 31, but delayed by a week and submitted it in the first week of February.
