sir,
this draft is doing injustice with NET/SET qualified candidate. the draft gives five advance increment and way for selecation to as assisatant professor to Ph.D holder; two advance increment to M.Phil holder and two advance increment for LL.M/M. Tech/M.V. Sc/M.D.
Are NET/SET qualified candidate not proved his capability? what mistake they have done?
sir actualy they have fallowed all the norms and draft gives no coment on it.
I want new draft will take the action about NET/SET holder and allot five advaced increment at the time of appointment and two advaced increment those who qualifie NET/SET in service.
NET/SET qualified candidate have compitative capacity; they are the young blood of india in teaching field.it is your duty to increase them, motivate them they will build new india. they also have capacity to do M.Phil and Ph.D. and so on. if they complit it give another five and two advace increment for Ph.D. and M.Phil respectively at the time of selecation and three and one advace increment for Ph.D. and M.Phil respectively those who have complited in service.
sir if such is not hapan all young blood of india blem the UGC that the UGC is killer of knowledge as well as killer of compitator UGC dont want reform in teaching field. UGC dont want to inter young student in teaching fields. all the people siting in higher level are as like Drutrastra. and they are dining the copacity of young blood.

Dear Sir,
My comments on DRAFT UGC NOTIFICATION ON REVISION ……………….. THE MAINTENANCE OF STANDARDS, 2009 are as under

If the proposed system of “Academic Performance Indicators (API) & Weightage Points(WP) required to develop Performance Appraisal Scoring System(PASS)” if being introduced it will degrade the R & D activity going on in the Central Universities rather than improving.
If proposed system is implemented it will introduce and improve the system of sycophancy and politics in the central Universities to get WP etc.

In my opinion :
(A) The existing system of appointment and promotion is sufficiently good it need to be simplified rather than complicating it.
(B) Please think about
(i) How to introduce basic honesty in appointment and promotions by our administrators? If it is not there what should be done.
(ii) Please make video recording for all the selections on the direct post of Faculty positions and their promotion under CAS
(iii) Please think to introduce transparency at all the levels of recruitments and promotions
If you can take care of above, I am sure the academic standard our country will reach to its height. Failing which whatever mechanism is introduced it is going to fail. More complicacy is introduced more politics will be added in the system and ultimately Academic standard is going to degrade.

My question from policy planner –
(I). Are you thinking to import candidates from foreign countries to improve the Academic Standard in our country? If not
(II). Why are you proposing a complicated system which is most like to be used as a tool to discriminate some candidates?
(III) Why do the policy planner want to waste our national resources (man power, money etc) by complicating the system where basic honesty does not exist in our system?
I am sure my above mentioned opinion is not going to draw the attention of policy planners for the reason not known to me.
However my point wise comments on Academic Performance Indicators (API) & Weightage Points(WP) required to develop Performance Appraisal Scoring System(PASS)” are as under:
1. On APPENDIX – III . Table 1
For I(A): Methodology have to be devised in such a way that politics does not inter into it. How can it be made transparent? The WP point allotted to a teacher X is unbiased. How to ensure it?
I hope every body knows what happens in our society. In view of above please do the needful.

2. For I(B): Institutional governance responsibilities are not given fairly in our Universities. Under such circumstances it may lead to inclusion of politics in Education system to get some administrative positions. However, very limited people may get this opportunity. So only some incentive may be given to those who are in administration not WP.

3. For II(a) Research Publication (Journals) the point per publications should be at least 25 point for those publications where journals have impact factor more than 1.0. Similarly for other publications the points should be raised proportionately. Failing which it will give adverse effect to the R & D activity in our country in long run. People will not like to involve themselves in academic rather will prefer to non academic activity where no mental botheration is required.
In joint publications each author should be given 25 points/publications. It should not be devided by number of authors as it will be a discouragement to the collaborative work and ultimately degrade the standard of research publication/work in our country in long run.

4. For II(b), II(C)(i) and II(C)(ii) no comments
5. For II(C)(iii) it should not be made mandatory to bring acceptance report as “Satisfactory” rather points should be given to all those P.I.’s who have completed the project and there is no adverse entry against P.I for running that project.
Otherwise, people will start running behind funding agencies and malpractices will start i.e. again politics will be introduced in Higher Education.
6. For II (D) no comments
7. For II (E) (i) it is very comfortable and enjoyable job of very short duration, it requires no specialized knowledge and this work is normally assigned to those who are sycophants. Therefore, the points allotted to this should be reduced to 10 or 5 points only. If this point is not reduced it will increase politics in Higher education.
8. For II (E) (ii), II (E) (ii) and II (F) no comments
9. for III. EXTENSION, CO-CURRICULAR WORK & STUDENT MENTORING ACTIVITIES :
I think the point allotted (200 points) is too much. It should be allotted only 10 to 15 points. It appears that people do not know how many peoples are required for NCC/NSS in a faculty of 200 teachers for these works. Do they know what about other teachers?
Is it our national policy to stop research work and involve all the researchers in NSS/NCC/Sport etc.
In my opinion, some points may be allotted for this work and it should not be made compulsory for all the teachers.
Or please provide opportunity for all the teachers of central Universities to do NSS/NCC/Sports and all shorts of CO-CURRICULAR WORK.
How to access the TUDENT MENTORING ACTIVITIES? Is is introduced to discriminate/ favour some people.
Thanks for your patience for reading my opinion.

Yours faithfully

R. L. Prasad

I agree with the opinion of Dr.Prasad. Very serious efforts have been made to analyse and comment upon the draft regulation.
Sir , your opinion should reach to UGC as feedback.

Hello !
"Draft UGC Notification on Revision of Pay Scales, Minimum" seems to have been prepared by so-called "social workers" and "people's representatives".
That's why university- and college-
teachers are being asked to become social workers instead of paying
attention to their main duties, viz. teaching and research-work.Sycophancy, nepotism,favouri-
tism, plagiarism and all other types of corruption will be encouraged if UGC instructions are to be followed for appointment and promotion of teachers.I agree with
Shri R.L.Prasad that only 10-20 marks should be prescribed for extra-curricular activities,e.g.
NCC,NSS,etc. for promotion of the teachers. All efforts should be directed towards creating, in all educational institutions,atmosph-
ere conducive to good-quality teaching-work and research-work in
the campuses themselves so that all teachers can perform their duties sincerely without any fear and discrimination. Thanks !

December 2008 regarding scheme of revision of pay of teachers and
equivalent cadres in universities and colleges as per the recommendations

grant for payment of 40% of arrears. The Commission is in the process of
releasing the grant to the universities and colleges. The centrally funded
universities and colleges are requested to make payment in accordance
with Government of India notification dated 31st December 2008 and the
UGC draft Regulations may not be taken into account while releasing the
arrears. It is further clarified that incumbent Readers and Lecturers
(Selection Grade) who have completed 3 years in the current pay scale of
Rs. 12000-18300 on 1.1.2006 shall be placed in the Pay Band of
Rs. 37400-67000 with AGP of Rs. 9000 and shall be re-designated as
Associate Professor. Incumbent Readers and Lecturers (Selection Grade)
who had not completed three years in the pay scale of Rs. 12000-18300 on

accordingly re-designated as Associate Professor. The Institutions are
requested to make payment in accordance with these provisions. The
fitment tables are expected from the Government of India any time. As
and when the same are received, these will be placed on the UGC website
and Institutions may make payment accordingly."

ALL TEACHER OF HIGHER EDUCATION SHOULD HAVE UNIFORM PAY SCALES AND CAS.

Why MHRD is not bringing all teachers in its fold...why only the teachers working in the University system should get the advantages where as the teachers elsewhere are governed by various other conditions though they are some time given the same pay scales without applying other conditions. After all teachers move from university system to other places and vice versa...Can any one respond...

To

Chairman,
University Grants Commission,
New Delhi
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:
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.
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)
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) .
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"

It is therefore requested to you that kindly clarify this point also 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 the true spirit of MHRD Notification will not be defeated.

Hello ALL

The Draft UGC Notification- Regulations -2009, is not in the best interest teaching community at large.

The conditions stipulated for upward movement from one scale of pay to the next are highly impractical, time consuming, unreasonable and will develop favouratism among authorities.

The poor teaching community will be at the mercy/discretion of higher-ups in getting next scale of pay.

The Draft UGC Notification- Regulations -2009 should be withdrawn immediately.

Let us all hope that UGC shall modify its Regulation -2009, as per the carification.

Either Minister Lie in the Parliament or The UGC is above the Parliament.

The negation of HRD Minister’s statement given in the Parliament on 16 December 2008 in the UGC Draft Notification for academic standards 2009 shows that either the Minister has given wrong statement in the Parliament to make the mockery of the democracy or the The UGC has made the mocekry of Indian parliament by negating the Minister’
s statment while preparing the UGC draft Notification which is still put on the web site of the UGC. The Minister’s statment in the parliament para No (Xiv) clearly states that those with neither PH.D or M.Phil etc. shall qualify to become the Associate Professor after 14 years of service as Assistant Professor. But on the other hand UGC draft notification says that Ph.D will be essential qualification for promotion as Associate Professor. Similarly Minister says that (in the same para) “While under the existing scmeme, 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.”

Similarly there are many things in the UGC Draft notification which contradicts the Ministry of Human resources development notification issued on 31st December 2008 . The Knowledge commission has also suggested the Re-Thinking on the role of UGC . I think the whole teaching community should come forward to oppose the role of derogatory and anti teacher role of Univerversity Grants Commission and Oppose the UGC draft notification provisions which violates the spirit of MHRD Notification.

Chairman,
University Grants Commission,
New Delhi
Reference: MHRD Notification on pay scales of University and college teachers.

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

Sir,
With due respect, I want to request you that the draft regulation 23 sept. 2009 must categorically specify the following:
1.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP (through CAS) and Lecturer(SG)who have completed 3 years of service on 1.1.2006.
2.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP (through CAS) and Lecturer(SG)who were in service on 1.1.2006 and have not completed 3 years of service on 1.1.2006.
3.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP (through CAS) and Lecturer(SG)who were selected/promoted after 1.1.2006 and not completing 3 years of service on 31.12.2008.
4.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP (direct selected/selected)who have completed 3 years of their service on 1.1.2006.
5.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP (direct selected/selected) who were in service on 1.1.2006 and have not completed 3 years of their service on 1.1.2006.
6.The pay band & grade pay and designation of Reader/AP who were directly selected/recruited after 1.1.2006 and not completing 3 years of service on 31.12.2008.
In essence the draft regulation must unambiguously specify pay band and grade pay and designation for Reader/Assistant Professor/Lecturer(Selection Grade).

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).
