AIIMS, PGIMER faculty to get salaries like IIM, IIT

Government today approved revised pay scales for faculty of autonomous medical institutions like the AIIMS and PGIMER, Chandigarh, bringing them at par with their counterparts in IITs and IIMs.

The faculty at these institutes had refused to accept the revised emoluments as per the sixth pay commission recommendations, demanding a pay hike at par with those in the IIMs and IITs.

The decision to give term parity to the faculty of autonomous medical colleges with their counterparts in IITs and IIMs was approved by the Union Cabinet at its meeting held today, Health Ministry sources said.

While the revised pay would be applicable from January 2006, allowances would be given with effect from August 2008.
