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.

1. Assistant professor (1)

Central Pay Commission (CPC)- Rs 47,304
