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.

Can anyone clarify please....I became Reader (Direct) on 2.7.2007. Will I get PB IV OR I need to spend three years as Reader first.

The condition that after 1.1.2006, no reader post exists.

anu said...

2(X) says that "incumbent readers and lectures(Selection grade) who had not completed three years in the pay scale of Rs. 12000-18300 on 1.1.2006 shall be placed at the appropriate stage in the Pay Band of Rs.15600-39100 with AGP of Rs8000 till they complete 3 years of service in the Grade of Lecture(Selection grade)/Reader, and thereafter shall be placed in the higher Pay Band of Rs.37400-67000 and accordingly redesignated as Associate Professor."
Given the case of Samir Bose he will need to spend 3 years as reder first in the pay band 3 with AGP of 8000.
Thank you.

Surender said...

Can someone clarify please....I became Assoc Prof under CAS on 31.12.2001. Where I will be put on 1.1.2006 AND when I will be eligible for Professor (CAS).

anu said...

Surender, you will be placed in the pay band IV on 1.1.2006 as you have spent 3 years in associate professor scale which is minimum requirement according to the notification.

jeela said...

Can anyone say something about the Computer professional like Programmer/ System analyst...which ugc notification kept at par with equivalent post in scientific organisation

ccstaff said...

Dear Jeela, It is a sad thing that not only in 1996 revision but in 2006 revision also we are leftout. The worst part is that we are not united and do not know each other through out the country. Atleast now we have to come together. Kindly send a mail to the newly created sixthpayccstaff@yahoo.in giving your details and tell similar friends to mail first to it. Let us see what best can be done by us. Affected Staff.

Dr. P. Hangsing said...

People who were eligible to the post of reader are no more eligible which include those who have already applied. Just because of the introduction of PB-4, which we were demanding it, they have punished us by lengthening the number of years required to reach the 2nd phase of our career -reader which is now re-designated as Associate Professor. PB-4 is introduced at the cost of existing Lecturers whose direct entry to Reader was only 5 years. Is this necessary? I guess it is necessary to maintain the supremacy of Baburaj. For an IAS he simply have to wait for his promotion but for us we have to be selected and there is no time bound promotion at all. I guess our associations like AIFUCTO and FEDCUTA are happy as long as Readers scale is taken care. Does this means all Lecturers are not worthy members of these associations?

S said...

Clarification required:
Our university has the designation of Associate Professor instead of Reader. So the designations are as follows:

Assistant Professor
Assistant Professor (Senior Scale)
Assistant Professor Selection Grade (for non-Ph.D's)
Associate Professor (after Ph.D)
Professor

I was a Senior Scale Asst. Prof. and completed my Ph.D in 2007. I did not apply for selection grade as it was for non-Ph.D's (12000-18300) and was appointed Associate Professor (12000-18300) in 2007. The total service came to 9 years till the appointment as per UGC norms.

Currently, I have the designation of Associate Prof. w.e.f. 2007. What would be my status in pay and designation according the new notification?

Niyaz said...

Dear Mukti, Great Job.
Just a quick query: I am appointed as Reader with 5 advanced increments of Rs. 420 each (total prerevised basic 14100/-)on December 12, 2008 (very very recently). What will be my pay fixation like? Thanks in advance.

Dr.muktinathyadav said...

Dear Niyaj,
your fixation should be like this:
14100 x 1.86= 26,226.00+AGP(8000)=34,226.00 which is basic
add 16% DA to it.
add HRA(10,20,30% whichever is applicable) and other allowances.
Thank you

S said...

Dear Mukti,

No one replied to my query :(

I was appointed as Associate Professor in Nov. 2007 under CAS after completing 9-year service (Ph.D degree holder) as per UGC norms. We do not have a designation of Reader in our university. Curently, I am drawing a basic salary of Rs 13260. What would be my designation and pay structure in the light of new pay commission?

Regards,
S

Pranab Kumar said...

dr. s, you will be presently placed under PB-III till Nov. 2010. Then you'll be automatically, upgraded to PB-IV. Pay fixation for PB-III will be done at present as per 6th pay commission norms. as your university does not have reader designation, your designation may continue as associate professor for entire period till you become professor.

Deepak said...

I have become associate professor through CAS on 01/09/2008. What would be my pay band in 6pc. Currently I am in 12000-18000 pay scale.

anu said...

sDear Deepak,
You will remain in pay band III till sept.2011, thereafter you will be fixed in pay band IV.

j said...

what could be the revised pay fixation (gross) for a lecturer with 2 increments?

thanx

anu said...

R
Your fixation should be like this:

15600 Pay in band
6000=Academic Grade Pay (AGP)
2 increments=1315
Basic Pay =22915
DA@16% =3666
Total pay =22915+3666=26581+HRA(10,20 or 30% of Basic Pay)+other allowances
Above presentation is on the basis of information provided by 'R'

anu said...

Dear San,

Your case looks little special as you became 'Assistant Professor' in the scale of 12000-18300 which is Reader/Associate Professor scale in UGC scheme of pay scale. If you are associated with technical institutions like IIT etc. then you should wait till out come of Mehta comittee.

j said...

thanx Anu.. I guess we generally add DP too with our pay.
thanx.

Samir Bose said...

Thank you Anu for your comments. With this I have some new queries are disturbing me. if you / any one could reply to these also:-

1. What will happen to directly recruited readers between 2006-till date. It appears that they will get associate professorship after 3 years ( as per your comment), but if during that time their University advertises the post of Associate Professor then whether we have to appear and get selected in the selection commitee to maintain their seniority.

2. As per there is no post called as Readers exists after 1.1.96, so what designation will be given /called to directly recruited readers between 2006-till date.

Samir Bose said...

Addition to above query:-

3. What I came to know that directly recruited reader/Assoc. Prof. after 1.1.06 will be placed directly in PB IV. The assumption about the Assoc. Prof. in 6th UGC pay that it's totally new post doesn't hold credibility. MHRD in case of deputy librarians even the direct recruitees will be placed in PB III for 3 years before moving to PB IV, but for Assoc. Prof. it's mentioned clearly.

Plesae reply to above.

rinku said...

dear niyaz
dr.mukti has not calculated ur pay correctly.you are directly appointed reader eq ass profess in pb-3(8000).according to fixation rules for new entrants after 1.1.06it takes 9 years(for ph.d on appointment as ur case is) to become ass profess in grade pay 8000(see notification mhrd).minimum g pay in pb-3 is 5400.acc. to me govt has given 3 years seniority in advance to entry level ass profess in g pay 6000.(this will be more clear assoon as ugc fitment tables come)so 9+3=12.i.e.it takes total 12 years to travel from 5400 to 8000 with in the same pay band pb-3.so as per fixation rules you will be given 12 increments of 3% each(non compounded) on sum total of minimum of pay band and minimum g pay of this p band.i.e. 15600+5400=21000.36 % of 21000 is 7560.add it to 15600.u get 23160.add g pay 8000.u get 31160.add increments are effectve from 1.09.08.so 5.3=15% of 31160=4674 nearest multiple of ten=4680.add it to 31160.u get 35840.this is ur basic today and 3% of this amount is ur next increment due on 1.7.09 as u will complete minimum 6 months of service by then.16 % d.a.=5734.total basic +da=41574.10 % of this =4157 will be college contribution towards cpf.add it later.come back to basic 35840.i assume 30 per hra so da +hra=46.146 per of 35840=52326+3712(ta 3200 +16 per of 3200 for metro)=56038+4157(cpf as mentioned above)=60095.this is ur gross.4157.2=8314+800(group insure)=9114 will be deducted by ur college.so net inhand =50981.methodology will be like this but amount may change as i assumed 3 years seniority in starting which may be 2 or 4 as soon as ugc tables come.further t.a. and h.r.a. rates may be different in ur area.d.a. from 1.1.09 will change.it will be 3 to 4 per more around 20 per as it increases every six months in ist jan and ist july.so u may get thora kam ya thora jyada.

rinku said...

dear boss notificaton dhyan se paro. u are right.koi pb-4 nai milega.reader koi bi ho ourana ya naya .if he completes 3 more years of service as reader only then he will be eligible for associate profess.

Gangadhar Chavan said...

Computer professional like Programmer/ System analyst are backbone of Universities in IT developments.and also well qualified with good acadamic record compare to teachers.But the UGC/MHRD is not extended the 6th UGC pay scale to the above IT professionals.this unfair to IT professionals.Now-a-days the goverenment prefering the e-goverennce.But MHRD/UGC is neglecting the IT Professionals once again.Kindly I request once again the UGC issue the separete order to above IT Professionals .
Gangadhar Chavan(chavan2002@yahoo.com)

Samir Bose said...

Here are some of the anomalies regarding Rider of three years as given in the MHRD notification:-

(i) A Reader is senior to Lecturer (SG) as per existing rules. In fact, a selection committee is required for promotion from Lecturer (Selection Grade) to Reader. Now a Lecturer (SG) from July 2002 will be Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and a July 2004 Reader who was never Lecturer(SG) will become Associate Professor only in July 2007 thereby becoming Junior.

(ii) All Readers appointed in 2007 or 2008 will get it after they finish their 3 years period. If their University advertises the post of associate professor in the mean time then they have to appear in selection committee and get selected to maintain their seniority which is absurd because Associate Professor is merely a "redesignation" of Reader. How can seniority be affected by "Redesignation"?

(iii) Consider this case, A was appointed Reader in December 2006 through direct recruitment. Before that B was holding the post of Lecturer since October 1999. Later in May 2008 his University has appointed two more readers who were already Readers in PG colleges from 2002. Interestingly these two candidates also appear in the earlier selection commitee where A was selected and they were rejected. Now they will get associate professorship from the date they join A's University (In fact they will get it from 1.1.2006 but for seniority it will be from their date of joining in A's University) and A has to wait till December 2009. Clearly, A is bound to loose his seniority over these two teachers.

(iv) Suppose two persons say A & B became Reader in October 1998 in different subjects in the same University. Both became eligible for promotion to Professor under CAS from October 2006. The University has conducted the selection committee in A's subject and he got it from the date of eligibility that is October 2006. B was unfortunate. University is yet to conduct selection committee in his department. Now he will become Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and will be eligible for Professor from 1.1.2009, whereas A enjoys all benefits from October 2006 even though both A & B became eligible at the same time for professorship.

In view of above the clause 2(a)ix of MHRD notification is ambiguous in this regard. I don’t think service jurisprudence will permit any of these anamolies, as how can a person becomes senior simply by "Redesignation". A person can become senior by "promotion" and not by "Redesignation". This "Redesignation Scheme" may create a problem in future and in any court of law as it violates the well established principle of seniority in service Jurisprudence.

It seems that the only way to avoid legal problems is to place all Readers in PB-IV without any riders and all Readers/Lecturers(SG) with more than 3 years experience will be given Associate Professorship from 1.1.2006. It does not matter whether one has 3 year experience or 30 years.

Dear Anu Ji,
GOOD DAY !
I am putting a query on behalf of
my senior colleagues (Readers) in my Department.They were getting basic pay Rs.18720/- in pay-scale Rs.12000-Rs.18300 on 01-01-2006 after removal of stagnation.Some of my junior colleagues became Readers on 01-01-2000 or after and thus completed 5 years in Reader grade,viz. Rs.12000-Rs.18300.As per new revised pay-scale in PB-4,
all of these senior and junior colleagues will get their basic pay fixed as Rs.37400/- in PB-4 on 01-01-2006.This is strange and sounds like injustice to teachers who are academically stronger and have been working as Readers for past 16-18 years.Please clarify this anomalous situation.
Thanking you and with regards,
Yours sincerely,
Y.K.Sharma

dear sharmaji
there is a great lack of knowledge among people about the rules of fixation.as a result no body is calculating his/her pay correctly.i can clear u.how can a person senior in the sense of grade pay or yearwise senior with in same pay band be fixed at same amount like 37400 in pb4?ur worry is genuine.its not like this.now be ready to understand.first u refer my ans up above some days back to samir bose's question.
pb4
g.pay pay in p band total 1.1.06
8700 37400 46100
8900 40200 49100
10000 43000 53000
12000 47100 59100
this table is on page no 43 of ccs revised pay rules 2008 in gaz.notification of govt of india.see india.gov.in/govt/paycommission
right sir?
the person with 9000 g pay in pb4 will be placed in above table at atleast one year senioity than the one with 8900 g pay in above table.so total seniority becomes 3 years from minimum g.pay 8700 to 9000.(2 years from 8700 to 8900 and 1 more from 8900 to 9000.)minimum total basic in above table is 46100.its 3 percent is approx.1400.this amount is eq.to one year seniority in pb4.3 years =3.1400=4200.add it to 37400.u get 41600.this is amount in pay band for direct recruit after 1.1.06.add g.pay 9000.it becomes 50600.this is the total basic for new entrant after 1.1.06 on 1.1.06.
here is the full table for those who had completed 3 years before 1.1.06.it gives figures on 1.1.06.minimum pre revised basic can be 12000+420+420+420=13260.(as condition of 3 years is necessary)its 1.86 times amount is less than 41600.so pay in pay band=41600.next 13680.in the same manner its amount is also 41600.both have same amont as bunching for two is allowed.next 14100.though its amount is also coming equal to 46100 but then 3 persons bunch at a single amount.so benefit of bunching which is 3 percent of bunched amount of pay in pay band only and to be added to bunched amount 41600.it is =1250.add it to 41600 .u get 42850.next we consider 14520 pre revised basic as an example.its amount is also 42850.next14940.benefit of bunching=3 per of 42850=1290.add it to 42850.u get 44140.in this manner following is the full table.
basic(pre revised) pay in pb4
13260 41600+9000=50600
13680 41600+9000=50600
14100 42850+9000=51850
14520 42850+9000=51850
14940 44140+9000=53140
15360 44140+9000=53140
15780 45470+9000=54470
16200 45470+9000=54470
16620 46840+9000=55840
17040 46840+9000=55840
17460 48250+9000=57250
17880 48250+9000=57250
18300 49700+9000=58700
18720 49700+9000=58700
19140 51200+9000=60200
19560 51200+9000=60200
i hope things are clear now.above amounts are basic only and that too on 1.1.06.u were taking pre revised basic 17880 on 1.1.06. so ur basic from above table is 57250 on 1.1.06.today it is 62570 after giving 3 increments.16 per da=10011.30 per hra=18771.ta =3712.so total=95064.deduction towrds pension minimum arond 8000.so u will take home=87064 approx.

ANU - RINKU

PLEASE REPLY TO MY QUERIES (JAN 07, 2009):-

(i) A Reader is senior to Lecturer (SG) as per existing rules. In fact, a selection committee is required for promotion from Lecturer (Selection Grade) to Reader. Now a Lecturer (SG) from July 2002 will be Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and a July 2004 Reader who was never Lecturer(SG) will become Associate Professor only in July 2007 thereby becoming Junior.

(ii) All Readers appointed in 2007 or 2008 will get it after they finish their 3 years period. If their University advertises the post of associate professor in the mean time then they have to appear in selection committee and get selected to maintain their seniority which is absurd because Associate Professor is merely a "redesignation" of Reader. How can seniority be affected by "Redesignation"?

(iii) Consider this case, A was appointed Reader in December 2006 through direct recruitment. Before that B was holding the post of Lecturer since October 1999. Later in May 2008 his University has appointed two more readers who were already Readers in PG colleges from 2002. Interestingly these two candidates also appear in the earlier selection commitee where A was selected and they were rejected. Now they will get associate professorship from the date they join A's University (In fact they will get it from 1.1.2006 but for seniority it will be from their date of joining in A's University) and A has to wait till December 2009. Clearly, A is bound to loose his seniority over these two teachers.

(iv) Suppose two persons say A & B became Reader in October 1998 in different subjects in the same University. Both became eligible for promotion to Professor under CAS from October 2006. The University has conducted the selection committee in A's subject and he got it from the date of eligibility that is October 2006. B was unfortunate. University is yet to conduct selection committee in his department. Now he will become Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and will be eligible for Professor from 1.1.2009, whereas A enjoys all benefits from October 2006 even though both A & B became eligible at the same time for professorship.

In view of above the clause 2(a)ix of MHRD notification is ambiguous in this regard. I don’t think service jurisprudence will permit any of these anamolies, as how can a person becomes senior simply by "Redesignation". A person can become senior by "promotion" and not by "Redesignation". This "Redesignation Scheme" may create a problem in future and in any court of law as it violates the well established principle of seniority in service Jurisprudence.

UGC teachers pay notification: Anomalies and suggestions for remedies

MHRD Notification No: 1-32/2006-U.II/U.I(i) issued on 31st December 2008 for pay revision of Teachers in Colleges and Universities has few anomalies.The Notification outlays the details of Pay Bands and promotional avenues and other minutiae, it also is evident in hosting anomalies, and unjustified regulations leading to further anomalies.

REGULATION 1
Designations of posts:
There have been re-designations of various posts held by teachers.
1. Assistant Professor AGP 6000
2. Assistant Professor AGP 7000
3. Assistant Professor AGP 8000
4. ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR AGP 9000
5. Professor AGP10000, 12000
ANOMALIES:
It is requested here by to make it known to community of teachers as to
a. Whether the post of ASSOCIATE Professor of MHRD Notification is same as that of earlier Associate Professor which is equivalent to Readers?
b. If so Assistant Professor AGP 8000 is an additional step teachers have to pass through to become Associate Professor?
c. The Already existing Readers and Lecturer Selection Grade are to be treated as Assistant Professor AGP 8000 or Associate Professor Equivalent to Readers/Lecturer SG?
d. What Pay Band will be applicable to already existing Associate Professors in various Universities and Institutions? If they are equivalent to Readers then Readers in other institutions and Universities shall also be eligible for PBIV or not?





REGULATION 2
1. Pay Band allocation:
2. PB III to Assistant Professor 6000, 7000, 8000
3. PB IV to Associate Professor 9000
ANOMALY:
1. If existing Principals of College in pay scale 12000-420-18300 are eligible for PB IV with AGP 10000 + Special allowance 2000, then why Readers and Lecturer Selection Grade also in the same Pay Scale 12000-420-18300 are kept in PB III as Asst. Professor AGP 8000?
2. If the Principals in the same pay scale as mentioned above are directly placed in PB IV what is the justification of stipulating the rider of 3 years for AP 8000?
3. What will be the fixation of a directly recruited Associate Professor of JNU with less than 3 year experience? I think according to clause 2(a) VIII of the MHRD Notification, he/she will go to PB-IV, whereas a similarly placed directly recruited DU Reader will be in PB-III. Evidently, qualification and pre-revised pay scale (12000-420-18300) for a directly recruited JNU associate professor and a directly recruited DU reader are same.
4. A Reader is senior to Lecturer (SG) as per existing rules. In fact, a selection committee is required for promotion from Lecturer (Selection Grade) to Reader. Now a Lecturer (SG) from July 2002 will be Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and a July 2004 Reader who was never Lecturer (SG) will become Associate Professor only in July 2007 thereby becoming Junior. Is this not violative of set norms of seniority as per Service Jurisprudence?
5. At (x) in the MHRD Notification dated 31-12-2008 it is stated that “(x) Incumbent Readers and Lecturers (Selection Grade) who had not completed three years in the pay scale of Rs. 12000-18300 on 1.1.2006 shall be placed at the appropriate stage in the Pay Band of Rs. 15600-39100 with AGP of Rs. 8000 till they complete 3 years of service in the grade of Lecturer (Selection Grade)/Reader, and thereafter shall be placed in the higher Pay Band of Rs.37400-67000 and accordingly re-designated as Associate Professor.
In continuation to this it is again stated in (xii) of the Notification that (xii) Assistant Professors completing 3 years of teaching in the AGP of Rs. 8000 shall be eligible, subject to other conditions that may be prescribed by the UGC and the university, to move to the Pay Band of Rs. 37400-67000 with AGP of Rs. 9000 and to be designated as Associate Professor.
Does it then mean that A Reader / Lecturer Selection Grade who have not completed three years as on 01.01.2006 are to be re-designated as Associate Professor after they complete three years and would be subjected to other conditions which are going to be prescribed by UGC, i.e., selection committee or interview?
1. Though the MHRD Notification dated 31/12/2008 states that the pay fixation will be as per the 6 CPC, it has failed to see that there exists no fitment table for 12000-420-18300 in 6 CPC and therefore many redundant variants are being used by different setups elsewhere in India. This anomalous condition reflects the callous attitude of the department concerned about the higher education.
Suggestion:
1. Therefore in scrutiny of the above evident anomalies it is appropriate, accurate and strongly demanded to recommend PB IV to all Readers and Lecturer Selection Grade from 01/01/2006, without any riders with appropriate pay fixation in the stages referring to fitment tables to be given.


REGULATION 3
1. Posts of professors in UG/PG Colleges:
1. It is stated vide (xiii) Ten percent of the number of sanctioned posts of Associate Professor in an Under Graduate College shall be that of Professors and shall be subject to the same criterion for selection/ appointment as that of Professors in Universities, provided that there shall not be more than one post of Professor in each Department; and provided further that One-fourth (25%) of the posts of Professor in UG Colleges shall be directly recruited or filled on deputation by eligible teachers and the remaining three-fourths (75%) of posts of Professors shall be filled by merit promotion from among eligible Associate Professors of the relevant department of the Under Graduate College.
2. And again under (xix) There shall be one post of Professor in each Department of a Post Graduate College and shall be subject to the same criterion for selection/ appointment as that of Professors in Universities, provided that One-fourth (25%) of the posts of Professor shall be filled on deputation/direct recruitment from among eligible teachers and the remaining three-fourths (75%) of posts shall be filled through merit promotion from among the eligible Associate Professors in the relevant department of the Post Graduate College.
Anomaly:
1. There are UG Colleges spread widely in India where the posts of Associate Professors either or not sanctioned or do not exist at all. In such event the Lecturers/Assistant Professors who reach to Associate Professor 9000 pay are deprived of chances to become Professors. Thereby Equals are treated as unequal and hence a clear-cut anomaly in concern to Article 14 of Constitution of India.
2. Even in the PG Colleges stipulation of only One Post of Professor per Department takes away the chance from those who are equally qualified and eligible for Professorship but are denied because of this regulation at (xix) which is short of focus and reflects bias.
Suggestion:
1. Instead of 10% law in UG Colleges and One post per Department in PG Colleges it may be treated in the same lines with the treatment given to Universities. This also will enable many aspirants at College level to enter University stream.


REGULATION 4:
1. The MHRD has again gone off course in the same manner as it had in implementing the earlier Scheme 1998 stating what is stated in as “State Governments, taking into consideration other local conditions, may also decide in their discretion, to introduce scales of pay higher than those mentioned in this Scheme, and may give effect to the revised bands/ scales of pay from a date on or after 1.01.2006; however, in such cases, the details of modifications proposed shall be furnished to the Central Government and Central assistance shall be restricted to the Pay Bands as approved by the Central Government and not to any higher scale of pay fixed by the State Government(s)”.
Anomaly:
1. MHRD is very well aware of the decision of the Kerala High Court regarding the anomaly of implementing the Scheme 1998 from 27/7/1998 instead of 01/01/1996. In spite of such glaring decision from Kerala High Court, the present Notification is extending the similar anomalies for the present and future thus inviting many cases of legal redressal through the High Courts and Supreme Court.
Suggestion:
1. Instead of offering the States to implement the Scheme 2006 from a later date than 01/01/2006, the MHRD needs to direct the States to implement it from 01/01/2006 thereby avoid the huge number of anomalies that would otherwise arise, and put the entire Higher Education out of gear. It is reminded again here to keep in the back of mind the decision given by Kerala High Court in 2002 & 2005 and recently in 2008. The reason of financial implication is a travesty in view of what is stated and said high about Higher Education.

rinku said...

dear samir bose:all depends upon where new assistant professor will be fixed at.infact data that has come out till now after 31.12 notification is insufficient in as much as it does not clarify wheather our system of fixation is a part of 6pc for other central govt departments or is independent.for example the person who joins pb4 in other departments at initial grade pay 8700 is having pay in pay band=37400.if we are part of them then associate professor should be fixed at an amount in pay band which would be higher than what is there for next g.pay 8900 in 6pay notification for others that is 40200 and then we get the table in my earlier post for readers with some assumtion ofcourse in the absense of data.and in case we are independent then that table can not be applied and a lecturer will be fixed at 15600+6000=21600 and all others will be fixed accordingly.infact what you have given is something we are waiting for .ugc full body is meeting on 21st.lets hope they come out with the details as soon as possible.

j said...

any clue about the actual implemention in the near future? thanx

Niyaz said...

Dear Rinku,

Many thanks for fixing my pay in PB3. However, being a Reader, direct recruit, of December 2008 I have still not given hope for PB4. I have discussed the issue with colleagues in Personnel department of my university (Hyd central univ)and they inform me that 'directly recruited Associate Professor' should mean those hired in response to advertisements that directly mention revised scales in the aftermath of pay revision. If this is correct and that sounds a little logical also, it appears tough for us to get PB4 all across.

Best,

Niyaz (http://www.isogem.org/niyaz.html)

JUDY said...

I would be grateful if one calculates my new basic pay and AGP on 01.01.06, if my old basic on 01.01.06 was 20450 as a CAS promoted Professor on 20.07.98 in the scale of 16000-450-20900-500-22400. Whether next increment will be admissible on 01.07.06; whether 3% increment will be calculated on both basis+AGP ?

Samir Bose said...

Anomalies revisited. Any solution now from DUTA / FEDCUTA /AIFCUTA /JNUTA - so called strike calling leaders?


(i) A Reader is senior to Lecturer (SG) as per existing rules.In fact, a selection committee is required for promotion from Lecturer (Selection Grade) to Reader. Now a Lecturer(SG) from July 2002 will be Associate Professor from 1.1.2006 and a July 2004 Reader who was never Lecturer(SG) will become Associate Professor only in July 2007 thereby becoming Junior.

(ii) All Readers appointed in 2007 or 2008 will get it after they finish their 3 years period. If their University advertises the post of associate professor in the mean time then they have to appear in selection commitee and get selected to maitain their seniority which is absurd because Associate Professor is merely a "redesignation" of Reader. How can seniority be affected by "Redesignation"?

(iii) Consider this case, A was appointed Reader in December 2006 through direct recruitment. Before that A was holding the post of Lecturer since October 1999.

Interestingly, qualification and pay scale (12000-420-18300) for both posts are same.

(vi) Lot of bunching will be there because as per clause 2(a)IX, all Readers/Lecturers(SG) with more than 3 years experience will be given Associate Professorship from 1.1.2006. It does not matter whether one has 3 year experience or 30 years.

I am an Assistant Professor (as on Feb 2009)for last 20 years. I have not been given any upgradation what so ever, in fact in V pay commission I was fixed in the new pay scale with two increments. In the mean time I became a professor (in A central University)for 2 years and was a confirmed professor when I resigned. After resigning I come back to my institute (which claims that it follows UGC rules)as I was loosing my service benefits. My institute has asked me to join as Assistant Professor, the post from where I had gone on lien. Earlier, in my institute itself I have been selected in direct recruitment as Associate Professor (2003)also, the appointment letter was withdrawn unilaterly? Please advice me can we have different treatment for Teachers in University system and other autonomous institute (in spite of the fact that there is always possibilities of moving from one system to another).... At Present I am drawing a pay of 12,675. Where will I be fixed in VI PC of UGC?

raghu said...

Hello, can anyone answer please ...
If I am to join NIT now as Assistant Professor with an offered scale of 12000-430-18300+DP+DA, what will be my new total salary with new scale and allowances? I have phd since 2003 and 6 years of post-dcotoral experience as well (if any of these count).

Dr.DK said...

Dear Bose,
1. Unless you compleat 3yrs in the scale of reader/lect SG you won't be redesignated as Asot. Prof. This dosen't mean that you are demoted, since you will be getting higher AGP than your juniors.
2. If now some one applies for new post of Asot Prof and gets selected, certainly he will become senior to you. Because the post of Asot Prof. is no longer equal to the post of Reader/Lecturer SG. If you want to jump to the higher post you will need to fullfill the criterion and apply for the post.

bhalla said...

Will some body answer to my question:

I got Lecturer (selection Grade) in 1-08-2006 and placed in the pay scale of 12000-18300 on 01-08-2008. What will be my new basic and on which date I will be placed in the pay band-IV .

Will any condition apply on me because as far as MHRD notification is concerned It is said that Lecturer (Selection Grade) working presently will continue to be designated as Lecturer selection grade till they are promoted as Associate professor and it said that the same formula will be applied on them as is applicable on incumbent readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade). The agnony of the presently working lecturer (selection grade is presented as follows:

Reference: MHRD Notification on pay scales of University and college teachers.

Subject: Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) in service at Present- UGC draft notification not in concurrence with MHRD notification.

Sir,
It is humbly submitted before you the agony of the teachers working as Readers/Lecturers (Selection Grade) in service at Present (i.e. on 31-12-2008 the date of MHRD Notification) as follows:
1. In the MHRD Notification regarding the scheme of pay of teachers and equivalent cadres in universities and colleges, No. 1-32/2006-U.II/U.I (i) dated 31-12-2008, page 3 Clause 2 (a) xi it is said that Readers/Lecturers (Selection Grade) in service at present shall continue to be designated as Lecturer (Selection Grade) or Readers, as the case may be, until they are placed in the pay Band of Rs.37400-67000 and re-designated as Associate Professor in the manner described in sub clause ( x ) i.e. for incumbent readers and Lecturer (Selection Grade) who have not completed 3 years in the pay scale of Rs. 12000-18300.
2. In the above notification no condition is imposed by the MHRD on the Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) who even acquire the grade of 12000-18300 after 01-01-2006 and suggest the same formula for these Readers/ lecturer (Selection Grade) to become Associate Professor as is applicable for the Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) who got the scale of 12000-18300 before 01-01-2006 and who have not completed 3 years in the present scale (Page 2 Clause 2 (a) point x and xi)


3. But the University Grants commission in negation of the above notification imposed certain conditions on all incumbent Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) and Readers/Lecturer (selection Grade) in service at present which relates to Academic performance indicators (API) and Weight age points (WP) required to develop performance appraisal scoring system (PASS) .

4. On the Protest of stake-holders UGC later withdraw the conditions on all the incumbent Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) through a clarification on the UGC website. But the point regarding the Readers/Lecturers (Selection Grade) in service at present has not been clarified. It is the demand of the teachers that teachers who have been awarded the designation of Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) even after 01-01-2006 and are going to complete three years in service in the pay scale of 12000-18300 in 2008 or 2009 should also be re-designated as Associate professor as and when they complete the required three years of Service and should not be imposed any condition. This is because MHRD Notification Clause 2 (a) (xi) also suggests the same formula as it is for Incumbent Readers/ Lecturer (Selection Grade) who has not completed three years of Service in the pay scale of 12000-18300 on 01-01-2006. The Clause 2 (a) (xi) is reproduced here for quick reference:
" Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) in service at present shall continue to be designated as Lecturer (Selection Grade) or Readers, as the case may be, until they are placed in the pay Band of Rs. 37400-67000 and re-designated as Associate Professor in the manner described in (x) above"

The above clause do not put any condition on the Readers/Lecturers (Selection Grade) working presently and suggest the same manner as suggested for the teachers who got the grade of 12000-18300 before the 01-01-2006.

• It is therefore requested to you that kindly clarify this point also and adopt the same formula for promoting the Reader/Lecturer (Selected Grade) in service at present as it is applicable for the incumbent Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) who have not completed three years of service in the pay scale of 12000-18300 as given in the clause 2 (a) (x) and as suggested in the Clause 2 (a) (xi) in the page 3 of the MHRD Notification.

• If this is not clarified then a teachers who has got the Reader/Lecturer (Selection Grade) say in Feb 2006 will be at disadvantageous position and just for getting the grade two months late he/she has to face lot of hardships and secondly he/she will not have the ample time to cover the conditions put in by the UGC. The conditions put in by the UGC are also not in concurrence of the MHRD notification which is supreme document.
• We also request you to get the exemption from conditions for all Readers/Lecturer (Selection Grade) who has been placed in the grade of 12000-18300 till the date of notification of MHRD i.e. 31-12-2008.

I hope you will fight our case and instruct the University Grants Commission not to exceed its mandate so that the true spirit of MHRD Notification should not be defeated.

i am working as acollege librarian since 1999. at present i am in senior scale of 10000.I completed my Ph.D in 2007 Dec. According to the 5th pay commission those who have completed Ph.D in service are eligible for selection grade (reader)after completing 3years service in senior scale without claiming phd increments.Now i am eligible for reader post from 2008 june.But no CAS is taking place.My doubt is can we fixed in the payband 8000 from 2008 June or else we have to finish 5 years service in this scale'(payband 7000) Please clarify

can we calculate HRA and CCA while calculatuing arrears.

Y.K.Sharma said...

Hello, Dear Syamala Sastry !
In my opinion, you should have
been fixed in Reader's grade,
(Rs. 12,000/- to Rs. 18,300/-)in
June,2008. Fault lies with your
Institution-Head who did not
take interest in calling meeting
for your CAS promotion.As per 6th
UGC pay-commission report you are
entitled to get Rs. 8,000/- as
AGP in Pay-Band Rs. 15,600 /-
to Rs.39,100/- w.e.f. June,2008.
You should pursue the matter
with your higher authorities.Best
of luck!

Dear Dr. Tulsi,
To determine your position as per revised pay-scale, you should give answers to the following questions:
1.Which pay-scale(Lecturer /
Senior Lecturer / Selection-
Grade Lecturer) were you getting
on 01- 01-2006?
2.What was your basic pay in this
pay-scale on 01-01-2006?
3.How many years had you completed
in this pay-scale on 01-01-2006?
Only after getting these answers
from you shall I be able to give
my answer to your question.

Request For Clarification Regarding PhD increment in 6th Pay

I joined my Institute (an NIT) in Feb 2000 in the post of Assistant Professor (Lecturer was the entry level). At the time of Joining I did not have a PhD and also when I had joined 5th Pay had not been implemented here and Phd was not an essential requirement for the post.
I completed my PhD in Dec 2005 but did not apply for Phd increment at the Time.
Now in 6th Pay I have heard that one will get PhD increment at any time of his career.
Pls. say if I can apply for Phd increment of not. If yes pls. quote the clause and document number I should refer to.
Thanks

Devesh Arora said...

Dear sir/madam,
I joined University service in 1970 as fresh M.Sc. and retired in December 2008.
1. I was promoted to associate professor in 1987 and was drawing a basic salary of 18300 as on December 2004 in pay band of (12000-18000).
2. I superannuated as associate professor in December 2008, and finally was fixed in pay band of 37400-67000 @59900 including grade pay etc.
3. Since as per UGC guide lines TWO additional are to be given to a person for Ph D , which I completed in 1977.

These increments have been given to me from applicable date which is 1977 recently.

will these increments of 1977 enhance my fixation as on 1st January 2006, i.e. the date from which UGC grades of 6th pay commission have been implemented in our university.

Since I was wrongfully not promoted to Professor so increment if any in 2006 will enhance my pension as on date.

I convey my sincere thanks for those who read it and are able to enlighten me about it.

Thanks to all

My promotion to lecturer selection grade was due in 2003, no interviews were held till 2006. In the mean time i completed my PhD in 2005. I was appointed as Reader from October 2005, the date i completed my Ph D. In this process of making Lecturer selection grade and Readers at par, I became junior to the teachers who were placed in Lecturer selection grade in 2003.In a way I am being penalized to do PhD. Earlier Readers were always senior to Lecturer selection grade. please inform is there a way UGC has addressed this discrepancy, when do i become eligible for professor. Will i get the arrears for the period of denied promotion.

"incumbent readers and lectures(Selection grade) who had not completed three years in the pay scale of Rs. 12000-18300 on 1.1.2006 shall be placed at the appropriate stage in the Pay Band of Rs.15600-39100 with AGP of Rs8000 till they complete 3 years of service in the Grade of Lecture(Selection grade)/Reader, and thereafter shall be placed in the higher Pay Band of Rs.37400-67000 and accordingly redesignated as Associate Professor."
What is UGC doing to address this discrepancy, why those who have done phd and those who have not are made at par. In this process Ph D is devalued.
