The teachers who have gathered under the banner of the Federation of College Teachers Associations of Manipur (FECTAM) called for a review of the cabinet decision of November 4, 2010. FECTAM President L. Randhoni Devi said both experienced and new teachers are being paid peanuts. The teachers have also gathered under the banner of the Council of Teachers' Association and (COTA) suspended classes over a demand for implementation of recommendations made by the Sixth Central Pay Commission.
