Non-teaching staff seek UGC scale

Bangalore, January 22 2012, DHNS:

The non-teaching employees of the Karnataka state universities have urged the Sixth Pay Commission formed by the State government to pay them salaries as per the University Grants Commission (UGC) scale.

The Karnataka State Universities’ Non-teaching Employees’ Association said that their salaries were not as per the UGC scale. While the salaries of university and college teachers were increased by 150 percent after the G K Chadha committee recommended so, the non-teaching employees were deprived of the benefits.

There is a large disparity between the salaries of teachers and non-teachers, said Association president Shankar.

In a letter to the chairman of the Sixth Pay Commission, the Association termed its move to consider the non-teaching staff of universities and college on par with the State government employees “unfair”. The Association demanded that the salaries be increased by 150 per cent.

In a separate letter to the Principal Secretary of the Department of Higher Education, the Association said that only IAS/KAS officers should be appointed to the posts of registrar (administration/evaluation) of the universities, as was the practice earlier.

Besides, non-teaching staff should be nominated to the Syndicate and the Academic Council.
