The Faculty Forum of IITD decided in its general body meeting on Saturday that its members will take a casual leave to mark their protest and may hold a protest march on the Teachers' Day if the government fails to take any measures before that.

Said S S Murthy, president of Faculty Forum: "Even PSU employees and our own students earn better than us when they join the MNCs. This is why we have decided to protest against the recommendations of the sixth pay commission now.''

In 5th PC, The Asst. Professor at IIT was equivalent to Reader in University. I can give example people from Central University left reader post and join at IIT as Assistant Professor. (One faculty from Delhi Univ. to IIT Kanpur joined 4 years back).

Also, in 5th PC, Associate Prof. at IIT was equivalent to Professor in University with same scale.

Also, there was no equivalent post (salary equivalent) in University to Professor of IIT.

In 6th PC, Nomenclature at IITs should have started from Associate Professor, Professor and Senior Professor as UGC changed the nomenclature for their teaching posts.

So, Do not campare Asst. Prof. of UGC (now) in Asst. Prof. of IIT. Please compare the scale of Associate Prof, of Univ. with Asst. Prof, ot IIT.
