Central versities facing teachers

Views: 88

Around 20 %  teaching posts were lying vacant in central universities throughout the country as on October 31, 2007. To meet this shortfall, the government has enhanced the age of superannuation of teachers from 62 to 65 years.

Besides providing quality teachers, this step will also allow the institutions to re-employee the teachers after superannuation till the age of 70 years, the University Grants Commission (UGC) said.

The government had also formed a Pay Review Committee to review the scales of pay of teachers in the universities and colleges to make recommendations on ways and means of attracting and retaining talented persons in the teaching profession.

The committee under the chairmanship of G K Chadha will submit its report by September 5, 2008, the Minister of State for Human Resource Development D Purandeswari said in a written communication to the Rajya Sabha.
