Bihar notifies payment of revised UGC scales

The long wait is over now. The state government has notified payment of revised UGC scales to the teachers of universities and colleges with effect from January, 2006. While the new payscales would be paid to the teachers from the month of September, the arrears would be paid in five annual instalments beginning from the financial year 2011-12. 

According to a notification issued by the state HRD department here on late Thursday evening, the teachers of traditional universities, degree colleges, grant-in-aid minority colleges and government colleges, besides the vice-chancellors and pro-vice-chancellors would get the revised scales with effect from January, 2006. 

While the Central government would meet 80 per cent of the additional financial burden on payment of revised scales from January, 2006, to March, 2010, the state government would meet the 20 percent expenses. However, from April, 2010, onward, the state government would have to meet the entire expenses. 

The state government has decided to implement the revised payscales proposed by the Central government along with the conditions and guidelines except the age of superannuation of teachers. The UGC has recommended the age of superannuation of teachers to be 65 years. Along with the revised pay, the designations of teachers would also stand changed. Lecturers and readers would now be designated as assistant and associate professors respectively. 

As per notification, the payscale of assistant professor will be Rs 15,600-39,100 with academic grade pay (AGP) of Rs 6,000, while that of associate professor would be Rs 15,600-39,100 with AGP of Rs 8,000 (with less than three years of service as reader) and Rs 37,000-67,000 with AGP of Rs 9,000 to those associate professors who have completed three years of service. 

The payscale of professors will now be Rs 37,400-67,000 with an AGP of Rs 9000 to Rs 12,000. A directly recruited professor will, however, be placed at a minimum of Rs 43,000 in the payscale of Rs 37,400-67,000 with an AGP of Rs 10,000. The principal of a college will receive Rs 37,400-67,000 with AGP of Rs 10,000. 

The vice-chancellor will get a fixed monthly salary of Rs 75,000, besides Rs 5,000 as special allowance. The pro-VC will be placed in the scale of Rs 37,400-67,000 with an AGP of Rs 10,000 to 12,000. 

However, the notification clarifies that the revised scales would be payable to only those teachers who have been duly appointed by competent bodies against sanctioned posts. The effective date of appointment of teachers whose services have been regularized under different absorption statutes would be counted from the date of absorption in the light of the judgments of Patna High Court (CWJC 5859/96 and 9839/2001) and their revised pay would be fixed on the basis of their valid service as readers or professors. 

But, those teachers whose appointments have been held legal from the date of their initial appointment would get the revised pay from that very date. 

Similarly, those teachers of new constituent colleges would not be given the revised pay whose names have not been recommended by the Agrawal Commission.
