Uttar Pradesh : Revised pay for higher education teachers okayed.

The state government late on Saturday evening approved the 6th Pay Commission recommendations for higher education teachers. The state cabinet gave its nod to the pay revision approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC). 

According to the decision, state university and degree colleges will have revised scales as per the rules and regulations of UGC. The benefit will be given with effect from January 1, 2006. The decision came following threat by teachers to launch an agitation, which would have disturbed the annual examinations due to start in all state universities in March. 

Teachers were agitated as the Election Commission is likely to issue notification for Lok Sabha elections on March 2, thereafter the government would have not been able to issue an order on pay hike, delaying the matter at least by 3-4 months. The fact was highlighted by the TOI on Saturday following which the government swung into action and the approval came in the evening. 

The state government will have to bear only 20 per cent of the hike as UGC will pay 80 per cent of the amount. There are around 17,500 teachers in 12 state universities, 345 government-aided colleges and 125 government colleges in the state. Over 20 lakh students are enrolled in these institutions. “We welcome the move which has come at the right time,” said Moulindu Mishra, president, Lucknow University Associated Colleges Teachers’ Association.
