Tripura implements UGC pay scale, hikes Dearness Allowance - 3% for State Govt. employees.

The Left Front government in Tripura has announced to implement a major portion of University Grant Commission’s (UGC) recommendation in regard to pay hike and service benefits to the college teachers.
Finance Minister Badal Choudhury said yesterday that the state cabinet decided to implement UGC pay bands with the financial and carrier advancement benefits to all degree colleges in Tripura with retrospective effect from January 1, 2006, which would give benefit to about 450 college teachers.

He said additional Rs 12 Crore would be required for arrear payment while more than Rs 20 Crore would be needed annually for implementing the new pay structure for them.

''We are not giving them opportunity to work for 65 years as recommended by UGC instead of this they will work for 60 years but we would follow all other academic and professional excellences at the time of employment to ensure better education,'' he stated.

The All Tripura Federation of University and College Teachers Organisation(ATFUCTO) had been demanding implementation of sixth pay revision package announced by UGC.

UGC's revised scale had been implemented in all other states with effect from 2006.

Meanwhile, the cabinet had also approved another three per cent dearness allowance (DA) of the state government employees and as a result, the difference of DA between state and the Central government employee reduced to five per cent.
