Punjab Govt is going to implement UGC scales soon.

Punjab government has decided to implement the UGC pay scales for college and university teachers following threat by teachers to boycott the ongoing examinations.

The central government had issued notification of new pay scales for college and university teachers on December 31,2008 and asked all state governments to implement the new grades. Punjab government however failed to implement the new pay scales despite repeated meetings between Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and teachers union leaders. The eighty percent grant of revised pay scales would be given by center government and 20 percent share will be contributed by Punjab government.

The state government has written to Election Commission of India to give permission to implement the UGC pay scales. A government spokesman said that decision was taken to implement the center govt notification and EC cant prevent state government from doing it. The state government would bear extra burden of Rs.250 crores with the implementation of UGC grades. Center government had notified the UGC pay scales along with recommendations of sixth pay commission.

It is beleived that SAD-BJP government had deliberately delayed the implementation of UGC pay scales to get its benefit in the election day.
