Teachers seek pay revision report, threatened to go on mass Casual Leave

College teachers here attended classes wearing black armband on Wednesday to protest against the delay in submission of the sixth University Grants Commission (UGC) Pay Revision recommendations by Prof. Chaddha Committee to the Government.

The Mysore University Private College Teachers, who also observed a protest, threatened to go on mass casual leave shortly if the committee did not submit its report soon to facilitate the Government to implement the recommendations of the sixth UGC Pay Commission.

Addressing presspersons, general secretary of the Mysore University Private College Teachers’ Association (MUPCTA) Mohan Raj said that college teachers from across the State would meet in Bangalore in a couple of weeks and take out a procession if the revised pay scales were not implemented by December.

The committee was supposed to submit its report on September 6. “Prof. Chaddha is seeking lame excuses to delay submission of the report,” Prof. Mohan Raj said.

The pay scales of UGC teachers were revised in 1996. Though the term of the previous commission’s recommendations was to end in 10 years during 2006, the pay scales of the university teachers had not been revised for the past 12 years, he said.

Prof. Mohan Raj said the teachers’ representatives would also lead a delegation to New Delhi shortly to pressure the Centre for early implementation of pay revision report. “We will meet the officials of the Human Resource Development Ministry,” he added.

MUPCTA president C.R. Raju urged the Centre and the State Government to implement the recommendations as soon as the report was submitted.
