Central university teachers on two-day strike to demand changes in regulation on service conditions.

Over 10,000 teachers of all Central universities will go on a two-day strike from today and boycott classes to demand changes in regulation on service conditions which seek to link their promotion to their output.

The teachers will not take class in the 35 central universities to protest the "negative conditions" proposed in the regulation, said Prof A N Mishra, president of Federation of Central University Teachers Associations (FEDCUTA).

He said the regulations, prepared and approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC), will force teachers to pay more attention to other activities rather than concentrate on quality teaching.

On January 16, the UGC approved a new regulation which links promotion of university teachers to their output in research and teaching rather than years of experience

The Regulation for Minimum Qualification of Teachers will now be considered by the government. As per the regulation, the output of the teachers will be quantified and they will be awarded marks as per their works in research, teaching, publication and other curricular activities.

Unhappy over the provisions in the regulation, members of FEDCUTA had earlier gone on hunger strike, but to no avail. The FEDCUTA has also decided to stage a march to the Human Resource Development Ministry on January 29 to express its resentment on the issue.

Labour Bureau Government of India declared a six point rise in Agriculture Labourer's price index for the month of Dec-2009. Basing on this Two point rise is expected on CPI for Industrial Workers,to be declared on 29th Jan-2010 for the month of Dec 2009.So the average for the quarter of Oct-Dec 2009 will be 167.66 and will result 34 slab or 6%+ increase on Bank DA for Feb.In worst case also,it can't go below the 32 slabs.
