The State Government is considering to enhance the salary of the lecturers getting UGC payscales as per the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations. Higher Education Minister Debi Prasad Mishra announced this in the Assembly today while replying to a question from Amar Prasad Satpathy (NCP).The Minister said the HRD Ministry has accepted the proposal to hike the pay of the lecturers as per the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations in a letter in December, 2008. Though the State Government had constituted a fitment committee, it could not finalise its report because of the general elections, he said, adding that the committee has finalised its report now. Steps are being taken to get the approval of the cabinet for the committee report, he said. The Finance Department has already given its concurrence.Replying to a question from Anant Das (BJD), the Minister said 922 posts of lecturers, 32 posts of principal and nine professor posts are vacant in colleges.
