Commentary on the UGC Pay Review as per the PRC recommendations

Updated on July 13, 2017

UGC has cleared the report submitted by the Pay Revision Committee constituted to review pay and other service conditions on June 9, 2016 under the chairmanship of Professor Chauhan. PRC was asked to submit its report to HRD ministry within six months from the date of its formation. Committee has recommended a 20 percent hike in the salaries of university and college teachers.Salient features of the recommendations are listed below.

  • New salaries should be paid with retrospective effect from January 2016
  • A multiplication factor of 2.72 will be applied to the basic salary and AGP for pay fixation
  • A performance linked promotion system has been suggested with emphasis on research
  • There is no change in the retirement age

Union leaders and central government officials are likely to meet today i.e. 17-05-2017, according to a NDTV report to make announcement on allowances due to central government officials.

  • The Seventh Pay Commission had recommended abolishing 53 of the 196 allowances, and subsuming 36 other allowances. It also recommended slashing the House Rent Allowance (HRA)--for metros'
  • Commission recommended bringing down the HRA from 30 per cent to 24 per cent.
  • The Seventh Pay Commission had recommended the rate of House Rent Allowance (HRA) be kept at 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

Since 7th CPC has abolished pay band and grade pay and subsumed grade pay in pay scales using different fitment factors.Recommendations of 7th CPC appears genuine to a great extent but should be looked into seriously if anomaly exists there in the pay scales of teachers. What was expected from the UGC pay review was clear to a great extent and it would be discussed below point wise in the light of 7th CPC recommendations.

Structure of revised UGC pay package (5th CPC to 6th CPC)

1. Group A Entry Level posts including Assistant Professor, Assistant Librarian, College Librarian, Assistant Director of Physical Education and College Director of Physical Education were revised from Rs 8000-13500 (pre-revised V SCPC scale) to Rs 15600-39100 with Rs 6000 AGP.

2. Group A - One Level Up Posts including Assistant Professor, formerly Lecturer (Senior Scale), Assistant Librarian (SS), College Librarian (SS)/Assistant Director of Ph. Education (SS), College Director (PHE, SS) place in the V CPC in the pre-revised pay scale of Rs 10,000-15200 were placed in the revised pay scale of Rs 15600-39100 in the AGP of Rs 7000.

3. Group A - Two Level Up Posts comprising readers and lecturers (SG)/DY DPE/Assist. DPE (SPG) with less than 3 years of service placed in the pre-revised 5th CPC of Rs 12000-18300/- were placed in the 6th CPC revised scale of Rs 15600-39100 in the AGP of Rs 8000.

4. Group A -Three Level Up Posts comprising readers and lecturers (SG)/DY DPE/Assist. DPE (SPG) with less than 3 years of service placed in the pre-revised 5th CPC of Rs 12000-18300/- were placed in the 6th CPC revised scale of Rs 37400-67000 in the AGP of Rs 9000.

5. Professors/Principals of PG Colleges/Librarians (Universities)/Director of PHE & registrars: These incumbants were placed in 16400-22400 in the 5th CPC pre-revised scales and were placed in Pay Band IV (Rs 37400-67000) with AGP of Rs 10000.


How many of the teachers called Associate Professors (without a Ph.D.) were awarded with 2 increments after acquiring Ph.D. as in-service candidates?

Strange decisions - never implemented

Has there been any productive use of giving different grade pays to teachers like Rs 6000, 7000, 8000 and 9000 (these grade pays are no where mentioned in 6th CPC) instead of making teachers a stranger (I mean a different group of employees)?

Has there been any use of designating non-Ph.D(s) Associate professor? Thousands of such Associate Professors failed to become eligible for post of Professor even after possessing a doctorate degree (w.e.f. award of Ph.D.)?

Committee composed by UGC was assumed to look into pay disparity and other working conditions should also take an actual assessment of the situation. It has supposed to see the standing of the college and university and its ranking among the national and international universities. Facilities in the name of infrastructure, laboratories and financial capabilities needed to be graded before assessing its staff for career assessment. However, the performance based promotion system suggested by the PRC has again laid stress on research but without any attention to existing infrastructural and basic requirements for high quality research.

There are several funny criteria for assessing the teachers during the CAS (Career Advancement Scheme) like publication of research papers in good impact journals. If you assess a Delhi University teacher against the teacher from a small city where instruments, chemicals and lab facilities are non-existent, can you expect same performance from both the teachers? If there are post graduate students in a college and each teacher is guiding five to six M.Sc. or Ph.D. students, is it possible for a teacher or researcher from a small town or college to produce students and research papers at par with the former?

What has been overlooked in case of Associate Professors while assessing them in their CAS was the period for which they were assessed. CAS was implemented from 2009 and assessment process began in 2012. How you can lay the criterion retrospectively? There were thousands of Associate professors who were stagnated in the same pay band since 2006 or even from an earlier date but they were assessed for three years periods beginning 2009. It simply mean that their earlier work (prior to 2009) was in vein and publications done prior to 2009 were worthless even if these were made in top class journals.

Other point that needs to be brought to the notice of Pay Review Committee is related to changes made in grade pay (though GP is not relevant for 7th CPC). Changing grade pay for university teachers did not bring any benefit to teachers. Grade pay of Rs 8700/- in 6th CPC was changed to Rs 9000/- for teachers but benefits associated with it were restricted to GP of Rs 8700/-. In fact it made things more ambiguous than using the same GP of 6th CPC. Let's hope, all these blunders do not recur while implementing 7th CPC for university staff.

      Prof. Kaushal kishore .. your basic pay didn't cross 67000. you have to calculate & consider your basic pay , deducting your Grade Pay of 9000 . So your present Basic pay shall be 58000+.

      SRIKE SEEMS ESSENTIAL NOW

      Last time for 7th CPC too the Delhi University Associate professors or /Readers had struggled hard when they could ultimately win grade pay 9000 for themselves

      This time also nobody is just moving on the question of CPC 7th for the Central University teachers!

      AIFUCTO or any association too is not moving against the Govt

      Are these teachers associations are strongly pro Modi?

      I too am pro Modi but our view point must be pressed- why people from central educational institutions are being given step motherly treatment??

      I was direct recruited as Asso.Prof. in 1985 possessing M.Tech. & my basic pay was under stagnation for continuous 7 years at 18300. I could not fit myself for MPS/CAS in my university due to not holding Ph.D. & not even get any kind of promotion like increasing GP from 9000 to 10000 as the rule in ICAR exists for at least one promotion in full service span period. I joined as Assoc. Prof. in 1985 & will retire as Assoc. Prof. in 2018.Is there any lacuna left for implementing 6th.UGC considering such type of cases. Again my basic crosses 67000+ and stagnated in July 2017. How to satisfy my self for framed rules by 6th./7th. UGC promotion policy and financial crunches. Reply awaited from well wishers please. Thanks!

      Now the government has one more excuse to delay the pay revision. That is the decision on revision of the fitment factor to 3. so there is no hope of getting the revised pay any time soon.

      @prof chidambaram.....AIFUCTO has already written to the PM around 25th Aug. Since june, they have met the HRD ministers twice. Last time they met the HRD minister on 5th sept. Everytime the minister says 7th pay will happen "SOON". Hence all the top people in the govt know about this issue. And the way AIFUCTO leadership is organising cosmetic protests, like wearing black badge, march to parliament, court arrest ( which was nothing but a get together meeting) etc, the only thing teachers can do is just wait for govt to give 7th pay as and when it desires and just pray to god in the meantime. The only kind of protest that will now work is a call for indefinite srtike, nothing else.

      Yes, Prof PKC our country wide UGC teachers' discontentment should be brought to the notice of PM & HRD minister . Who will bring it to their notice, for our own sake, it's our duty to transmit our displeasure for this inordinate delay in implementing New UGC scales, by sending en mass Emails to the most honoured PM,which shall at least draw the attention of the PM Peshi. So National Teacher Union should immediately prepare a 4 line strongly worded Plea and ask all the members across the country to act at once accordingly.

      So far, the comments on the implementation of VII revised pay pattern for University and College teachers would have exceeded several thousands. In spite of it, the HRD Ministry is yet to announce the steps initiated by it in announcing the revised pay structure for the enlightened community who is responsible for shaping the students. Because of the inordinate delay in deciding the issue , the teaching community would feel obsessed about the inaction of the Ministry. Are the comments brought to the notice of the Hon'ble HRD Minister and Hon'ble Prime Minister ?

      It seems it was a get together of friends at new delhi on 5th sept and not some court arrest activity. Teachers came......gave some slogans.....and then went back home. A few articles on some news papers and websites and thats it. I think the HRD minister and HRD officers must be smiling at these kinds of protests. They will be welcoming hundreds of such protest where they can smile at the protesters and simply ignore them.

      To all of my colleagues, teaching and non teaching alike. I see a lot of people questioning about PRC for non teaching, librarians, ad-hoc teachers, permanent teachers etc. But friends, I also would want to ask you all to ponder on a bigger question, will the concept of public universities survive the test of time l. The test we are put through the present government. I doubt if the answer would be affirmative. As the government is trying to create a divide. College teachers vs University teachers, central University teachers vs state University teachers. Let's not give into these tricks. Together we stand united...divided we fall apart. I request all employees of universities, teaching, library staff and non teaching staff to strengthen the hands of duta, fedcuta, jnuta, AIFUCTO in maximum possible numbers tomorrow at jantar mantar. After all, everyone is a victim of the system. Please understand this is not a fight for teachers only. Each University employee is affected, irrespective of his or her teaching or non teaching status

      Definitely, the govt. might have some ulterior motives behind the implementation of 7th UGC PR. But it is high time we had to realize the 'Capabilities' of the teachers' associations in the light of the long delayed PR. The association like AIFUCTO boasts itself being the largest body with almost 8 lakhs memberships representing the teachers fraternity. But we have to think how far they can contribute anything in favor of the teachers interests?I think nothing will happen on 5th of September nor any media coverage as well. Please stop raising slogans in favor of any of these organization in future.

      Protest in any form which does not cause inconvenience to the government will just be ignored by the govt. Either you guys bring the higher education system in the country to a halt ( by countrywide strike) or else the protest on 5th sept should cause inconvenience to the govt (i.e lots of tv coverage, visuals of lots of people getting arrested on tv etc.). But if the police will be able to disperse your 5th sept gathering with little bit of effort, then nobody in the govt will bother. For example, your last " march to parliament" was not even noticed by anybody. Hence govt smilingly ignored it. I hope your 5th sept protest will not turn out just like that.

Every time the moment the honorable HRD minister says the problems will be solved soon, our leaders call off the planned protests. one can be cheated once or twice but our leaders choose to do it every time without fail. I hope this time they do not call off protest in the same manner. I am sure the minister is going play the same trick again. The protests should continue till the objectives are achieved and our demands are met.

      Our leaders are great. They achieved a lot in the past and we are proud of their achievements. But the politicians are worst and shame for the delay of ugc 7th pay.

      It seems that for extending our protest we are waiting for the approval of UGC or MHRD. What the leaders are waiting for !! Shame on you, our so called leaders.

      It is good to see that AIFUCTO has written a letter to the Hon'ble Prime Minister to kindly intervene in the matter of release of 7th CPC to University and college teachers. I am sure our only able leader will look into the matter and get it cleared in the next cabinet meeting. Holding up this issue has immensely affected the pensioners of central universities as they have been deprived of 2 additional dearness relief, which is due since july 2016. Further non-teaching staff, who will fall in line with Central 7th CPC , have been waiting for revised pay for want of approval of the Union Cabinet with regard to UGC pay review committee recommendationss.

      Prof. SK.. if its true, it takes another decade or Pushkaram to collect cognizance evidences on self-reliance from States/Universities. Its not easy for all Higher Edn. Institutions to generate funds by themselves at optimum level, so Ministry continues to coerce institutions on self sustainability, culminating in finding a pigeonhole for revised scales implementation. there ends matter(also this type of posting comments)......- 'All is well that ends well'.

      No 7th pay commission for UGC teachers. Ministry has denied to give financial assistance. University has to generate his funds for teachers and send evidence of it to ministry before approval.

      Otherwise enjoy 6th pay commission.

      Why so delays in UGC PRC? At least they should display draft regulation.????

      So each and everyone can discuss in the forum. It's really pathetic approach---

      Rightly said Prof. Vijendra Singh. the Govts. anywhere in the world, dictate terms to Employees. The Unions earnestly plead the rulers to achieve their legitimate fruits. Often some sections of wokers go on strike, depending on the vulnerability /society's dependence on it, shall force the Govts. to take favorable decisions. But here UGC Teachers across the country are not in commanding/influencing stage. Hence our unions have some limitations, to enable them to continue to have Govt's hearing. Intellectuals should realize this fact and continue to support our Striving union leaders. Hope that next cabinet meeting shall discuss/approve UGC pay scales of 2016.

      @ vijendra singh ji,

      If doing nothing or just doing less than what is required means limitations then I think the leadership lacks the ability required to run a union. where is the aggression that was there at the time of revised API norms in the month of June 2016. why were the limitations not existing that time. of course even then the movement was spearheaded by DUTA by boycotting the evaluations.

      @ Mr Tapan

      UGC itself comes under the ambit of central government as a regulator for universities therefore their salaries are not dependent on UGC 7th PRC and KVS too had a seperate report which UGC has nothing to do with. KVS revision were approved by the cabinet last week. till last pay commission there used to be a clause that stated that the non teaching staff may be given the same salary as that recommended by the PRC for central government employees therefore the non teaching staff used to get the pay as per the recommendations before the teaching staff but this time such line was omitted.

      Dear Dr. Surya,

      I beg to differ little from your observation made on the extension of 7th cpc to non-teaching employees of central universities as the 7th cpc pay scales have already been extended and implemented to the UGC officials and KVS.

      If the matter of 7th CPC for central universities and other central institutions do not figure in tommorow's cabinet meeting ,What is next?

      AIFUCTO/FEDCUTA/DUTA also have limiatations. Their leaders can't force government to implement new UGC scales.

      Dr.Surya 6 weeks ago

      Mr. Tapan this time the non teaching staff cannot get the revised pay till the UGC pay report is finalized. The reason for this is that till 6th pay commission the pay review committee used to add a line saying that the revision maybe extended to all autonomous institutions too. but in the 7th pay commission report did not mention this line. Therefore, non teaching staff has to wait till the UGC pay commission is approved. and if the 7th UGC pay report too does not mention that the 7th pay report for central government employees will be applicable to non teaching staff, the wait could be longer for non teaching staff. however, this is very unlikely to happen. but again, anything is possible with this government.

      Since UGC pay review committe does not contain any recommendation for non-teaching staff and officers, then as to why 7th cpc is not implemented for them.

      This is the danger of having associations which are aligned or associated with ruling party. Next time choose leaders of AIFUCTO/FEDCUTA/DUTA very carefully.

      Dear mr. Sm and all teacher colleagues I request one and all to first boycott AIFUCTO, fedcuta and any other teachers organization. I get are useless in terms of any kind of protest. Their protests are only namesake. They are the ones giving time to the government. Willingly there is no agression. God save us. Everything seems to be hand and glove affair.

      It's really embarrassing that how salary hike for teachers are discussed by press in such a manner as if teachers should not get any salary and it is only ministers who deserve salary and hike thereafter. The state and central tug of war is nothing but gimmick to suppress the actual intention of not willing to hike any salary for teachers. I firmly believe teachers are now unwanted by all sectors of society. Our so called worthless leaders are mainly responsible for creating such a situation where Govt. easily being able to neglect us like most-unwanted race.

      Friends,

      The news published in The Indian Express regarding tussle between Finance Ministry and MHRD on 7th UGC pay scale for 8 lacks university & college teachers of the country is nothing but a well thought drama of this Govt.Its preface was written on the same day when UGC & MHRD refused to share the recommendations of Prof Chouhan Committee's report with stake holders including AIFUCTO without any justified reason.After a long and continuous struggle anyhow recommendations reached to the Central Cabinet.Now next episode has been started knowingly keeping teachers of the country in complete dark.MHRD is willing to save it's skin cleverly in the eyes of the teachers of the country.By not sharing the report in public domain and with AIFUCTO & FEDCUTA ,MHRD is supporting tactics of Finance Ministry to reduce the financial support to state universities. ABRM friends are also kept in dark or know all things from binging?If they are also in dark, they should come forward to support AIFUCTO stands for strengthening cause & issues of teachers fraternity of the nation.This is phase of complete unity without any consideration of political affiliation.AIFUCTO is leading the teachers unity & movement in complete sense and agitating & raising the issues in totalityfrom very bigning.AIFUCTO once again appeals university & college teachers across the country to come together,to think together,to agitate together to save the existences of HE in the country and for our legitimate demands.This is the prime time for the acid test of our unity.Our one united jerk of movement may break the artificial tussle of the MHRD & FM.

      The link given by Prof Reddy is the modified recruitment rules for NITs/IISERs which was published recently. Nothing to do with 7th Pay for UGC teachers. But its a hint that UGC teachers may also expect some guidelines in this line. My opinion is that similar guidelines being worked out at ministry level probably......

      Prof CL reddy is just giving the glimpses of 7th PRC for teachers. He never told for UGC teachers. He speculated UGC teachers will be also treated in the same manner.

      Its good we are sharing the information ....
