Professors, lecturers get hefty pay hike after 6th Pay Commission

Professors and lecturers are all set to get hefty pay hike. Following the 6th Pay Commission implementation there was some disappointment among university and colleges teachers over the delay in implementation of the pay panel recommendation, but finally they too are set for substantial salary hikes.

If everything goes well university teachers will get approximately 30 percent pay hikes on the lines of the Sixth Pay Panel recommendations. 

University grants commission had set up a committee under a former vice chancellor of prestigious JNU to recommend the pay revision needed in teaching fraternity in the universities. 

The GK Chadha committee was under fire recently for not being able to submit its report on time, the same day when Sixth Pay Commission presented its report. 

But Chadha committee has some good news for teachers besides pay raise. It has reportedly favoured raising of retirement age to 65, flexibility to accommodate talent through incentives, grant for working in remote and inaccessible areas and also emphasis on research.

Chadha while making the announcement said, “We will ask all states to invoke a uniform policy on the age of retirement and re-employment of teachers. The uniformity is essential to rid India’s higher education sector of inter-regional disparities”.

Chadha went on to add, “We will focus at the entry level, on those just completing their academics and contemplating a life of teaching. We want to lure them into the profession.”

He added, “We cannot offer the red-carpet treatment that the corporate sector can, but we plan to offer them better research facilities to keep them (faculty) in our universities.”
