Teachers’ body threatens to launch nationwide agitation

The All India Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organisations (AIFUCTO) has demanded the Centre to make public the Seventh University Grant Commission (UGC) Pay Review Committee report with immediate effect. The Federation threatened to launch a nationwide agitation if its demand was not conceded.
A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of AIFUCTO held at the Periyar University here on Sunday.
Kesab Bhattacharya, president of AIFUCTO, and Arun Kumar, its secretary, told presspersons that the Federation members discussed the 7th UGC Pay Revision and also the education policy proposed by the central government. The executive expressed serious displeasure on the “undemocratic attitude” of the Centre for not making public the report of the 7th Pay Revision for university and college teachers.
Prof. Bhattacharya said AIFUCTO being the foremost teachers’ body of the nation is not being consulted is unheard of in the past. This is in gross violation of established and transparent democratic practice.
The repeated requests of the AIFUCTO to the Minister of HRD have fallen in deaf ears and he is deliberately avoiding the federation.
As a first step, a letter campaign to HRD Ministry and UGC by every State affiliate and university will be made during the first week of April to press for the above demand. A Demand Pay meeting will be held on April 19 throughout the country to pressurise the government of India for expeditious action.
Prof. Bhattacharya said AIFUCTO will present an alternative education policy safeguarding public funded quality education protecting the constitutional mission, ensuring social justice and inclusive growth and the federal structure of the country. The federation decided at the national executive in favour of launching a countrywide programme in support of the alternative education policy.
Referring to the suspicious death of J. Muthukrishnan, the national executive committee adopted a resolution pleading for swift action to apprehend the culprits to be brought before law
Another resolution urged the government to revert back to old pension scheme.
