Early tabling of UGC pay panel report sought

NEW DELHI: In the light of the announcement of revised pay scales for Central Government employees, the Federation of Central Universities’ Teachers’ Associations has demanded that the University Grants Commission’s Pay Review Committee submit its report at the earliest.

“When UGC Chairman S.K. Thorat met us recently, he assured us that the committee would submit its report within 15 days of the decision on the Central Pay Commission report. We are concerned over certain reports that the committee may take another three to six months to submit its report,” said Federation president Aditya Narayan Misra on Wednesday.

The teachers federation has threatened that if the report is not submitted immediately it will observe a dharna and hunger strike outside the University Grants Commission office on Friday.
