The University Grants Commission (UGC)’s recommendations will come into focus this month with the Cabinet considering a pay hike of 22 per cent to 28 per cent for about 8 lakh teachers and staff working at central or state colleges, universities and other educational institutions like IITs and NITs.

The entry pay of assistant professors will rise by Rs 10,396 with a grade pay of Rs 6,000 and that of associate professors will rise by Rs 23,662, according to a report by Hindustan Times. The Union Human Resource Development Ministry officials said that the decision will “most likely sail through”.

The pay structure for centrally-funded institutions will be separate and another pay panel has suggested an increase in salary structure. Teachers may also be evaluated on the basis of a grading system instead of the current point system.

Changes in salary as follows:

1. Assistant professor (1)

Central Pay Commission (CPC)- Rs 47,304
Seventh CPC entry pay- Rs 57,700
Increase- 22 per cent
Grade pay- Rs 6,000

1. Assistant professor (2)

CPC- Rs 56,480
Seventh CPC entry pay- Rs 68,900
Increase- 22 per cent
Grade pay- Rs 7,000

3. Associate professor

CPC- Rs 1,07,748
Seventh CPC entry pay- Rs 1,31,400
Increase- 22 per cent
Grade pay- Rs 9,000

4. Professor

CPC- Rs 1,16,070
Seventh CPC entry pay- Rs 1,44,200
Increase- 24 per cent
Grade pay- Rs 10,000

3. Vice Chancellor

CPC- Rs 1,75,200
Seventh CPC entry pay- Rs 2,25,000
Increase- 28 per cent

The last pay hike for teachers was implemented 11 years ago and this year, numerous teachers associations have threatened to go on strike due to the delay in the implementation of the seventh pay commission.

    Teachers will get seventh pay? Every ministry seems to be very active except HRD. Either somebody must wake up Mr. Minister or teachers should sleep to dream about VII pay.

          50976 10396 61372. The grade pay of an assistant professor is more and more less then that of an assistant librarian and a clerk.

            the ry was calculated based on the DA till Dec.31, 2015., ie 119 . Then the entry level ry will be 47304. The DA we are getting now is 136 . So I think they might have merged 119 DA. Then the percentage of DA from 2016 January has to be decided by the ministry. Then only we will get the correct picture of it.

            This is a good move.We must realise the fact that we will get only what we pay for.If you pay peanuts you will certainly get monkeys.Teachers remuneration is an investment to our future not an expense like the perks of a politician

                  This is the tactic of feku govt in gujarat state as well. They declare the inflated figures 5 to 6 times in the newspaper and what they finally pay is much less than what the UGC or the pay commission has suggested. Trick : they delay the implementation for a period of 3-4 years and then give all the amount together in a single year. Then the employer will pay the maximum amount in tax because in a single year , their income will increase (due to payment of the arrears of the previous 3-4 years ry) Feku only fools the public

                  1. Assistant professor (1) , Central Pay Commission (CPC)- Rs 47,304...this is wrong.....according to 6th pay, entry level ry is (15600 6000) x 136 DA 50,976. 7th pay proposal is only 57,700 so increase only 6724 and 13.2 ...then how it is come 22 ??????

                    The amount of 57700 is based on DA rate of 119

                      Dear sir, I think the calculation would have been made based on the DA that was existing till Dec.31, 2015. So entry level assistant professor ry will be 15600 6000 AGP 21600. Then add 119 DA to it. Then it will be 47,304.

                      But with the entry barrier higher can this pay hike be of any consequence considering that PhD's should get higher start to promote serious candidates and allow meritorious ones, not those which are granted favours. I am qualified as per UGC to be Assistant Professor in Law since June 2015 with LL.M and pursuing M.Phil- PhD at Jawaharlal Nehru University, but private universities like Amity are not willing to give me my due. A multistage interview till Vice Chancellor stage has taken place but no response since last 6-8 months. I incidentally worked as a Patent Lawyer and my ry way back in 2007 was 78099 p.m. Due to circumstances , upon my return from England, i had to turn for academics, but haven't managed to ensure a decent pay pack, despite being educated in public schools and Delhi University. DU doesn't recruit older candidates with previous work experience. I mean is it all about pay here , which is often behind inflation. Are there any attempts to recruit genuine ppl ?
