Guest lecturers seek hike in salary

The Karnataka State Government First Grade College Guest Lecturers’ Association has threatened to go on an indefinite hunger strike from May if their pay is not hiked and salaries are not given on time.

Srivivasachar N, state president of the Guest Lecturers’ Association, said that they would also boycott exams and evaluation process which will begin from May first week.

“We have submitted our memorandum to the government four times. Minister for Higher Education T B Jayachandra has said that he is helpless. There was a meeting in this regard on April 1 but we were not even invited. We want the pay hiked from Rs 9,500 to Rs 25,000. Also, we get our salaries only once in three months. We want it to be regularised,” he added.

Across the state, Srivivasachar said that there are 14,531 guest lecturers and 4,800 full-timers.
