A committee has been formed by the HRD (Human Resource and Development) ministry in order to review the recommendations suggested by the University Grants Commission (UGC) panel in the case of implementing 7th pay commission in educational institutes.
The step was taken by the HRD ministry when various associations of the Universities threatened the government about going on indefinite strike, if, there be any further delay from the side of the government in implementing the 7th pay commission.
“Seventh Pay Review committee for implementing the recommendations (of the 7th pay commission) in educational institutions, universities and colleges has submitted its report to the Ministry. I have constituted a committee headed by Higher education secretary to study them,” Union HRD minister Prakash Javadekar said.
The committee will consist of the officials from the finance ministry and other relevant offices and they will submit their final recommendations which then further will go to the cabinet, he added. Javadekar urged the teachers, not to go on strike as it is exam time and any such action on the part of teacher will only cause unnecessary disruption in the academic functioning of the universities.
“I appeal to everyone not to stage any protests as exams are around the corner and the ministry will ensure that justice is done to everyone. “Those who had some doubts whether government is moving in this direction, let me dispel their doubts that we have already started action and soon they will get good news,” he added.
