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.
