IIT federation tells members to accept pay scales.

The All India IIT Faculty Federation (AIIITFF) President M Thenmozhi today urged faculty members of all the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) to accept and implement the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.

“We have requested the faculty to accept the pay package in the interest of the entire IIT system,” Thenmozhi told reporters here after the faculty meeting at IIT Delhi today. The meeting was held to take stock of the situation after the HRD ministry met the IIT Council on October 19. The board of governors of most IITs will meet in a month’s time and the IIT faculty will meet thereafter.

Thenmozhi, however, said that the issue relating to the 40 per cent cap on promotion of professors to senior grades and the provision of contractual appointment at entry level continue to remain matters of concern.

Last month, HRD minister Kapil Sibal had assured the faculty that the government guidelines on the pay structure could be relaxed for promoting excellence. Faculty associations were unhappy about an HRD clause which said there would be a 40 per cent cap on professors who are eligible to receive higher pay after six years in the post.
