      Dear Vijay, it's a policy matter. Government has introduced New Pension Scheme and this shows that government is interested to get rid of pension system. In my opinion, possibilities are remote of converting CPF to pension.

      With due respect I want to know that is there any logic not to recommend pay scales for all the supporting staff of technical/teaching institutes by the AICTE/UGC as it is done only for the teaching staff please………..?Is it not discrimination by the GURUs who are members of the UGC/AICTE?

      Dear all

      Does anyone know what is the designation of assistant professors recruited after 01-jan-2006 and before implementation of 6th CPC in NIT to the pay scale 12000-420-18000.

      Recently NIT Calicut has conducted interviews to the post of Assistant Professor with Pay band 15600-39100 with AGP 8000. The assistant professors recruited after 2006 were placed in with Pay band 15600-39100 with AGP 8000 without any increments. The candidates who are selected in the interviews conducted in 2010 are given higher gross salary than those selected in 2007 and 2008. They were given the increments for PhD and some of them even got higher pay in pay band (eg: pay of one of the persons for new recruited post is :pay in pay band in the newly recruited post is Rs 30000/- with AGP 8000) . The explanation is that the interview board has recommended higher pay scale. Is there any provision to violate in FR&SR that protects seniority?

      teachers (Reader/Lecturer (SG)) and equivalent non-teaching cadres who have retired prior to 1.1.2006, are eligible to draw pension/family pension in pay band IV (Rs 37400-67000) if they have completed 3 and 5 years service in pre-revised scales of 12000-420-18300, respectively. State Govt. has been informed of the decision and teachers in state universities can now draw revised pension if state govt. agrees to it. This is realy a good news. Congrats.Details are available at:
