The decision was taken at a meeting held between the members of AIFUCTO and Federation of UP University College Teacher's Association (FUPUCTA) at the Reid Hall of Lucknow Christian College (LCC) on Sunday. The meeting was presided over by general secretary of AIFUCTO, Ashok Burman. The officials said that they would press in with their demands before the UGC to declare the fitment table and get it cleared by the finance and the ministry of human resource development, government of India.
The issue of fitment table has been raging for the past many months with the teachers insisting on some crucial amendments like letting a teacher get the rank of a professor without a PhD degree. The teachers have been arguing that it is a post-graduate degree which is essential at the entrance level.
Meanwhile, the members of FUPUCTA said that they would be meeting officials in the higher education department to put forth their demands for a revised salary structure in accordance with the six pay commission.
