7th Pay Commission demanded for Non-Teaching employees

New Delhi: Welcoming the Centre’s approval of recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission for University and College Teachers, the Delhi University Teacher’s Association (DUTA) has demanded immediate approval of the pay revision of the non-teaching employees of the Universities and the colleges.

The Narendra Modi-led Central government must approve the pay revision of the non-teaching employees without any further delay taking cognizance of the financial problems being faced by them, said DUTA.

“The Cabinet decision can only be appreciated or responded to in its entirety when the details of the decision are communicated in full, through Gazette Notification,” NDTV reported citing a statement from DUTA.

“University and College Teachers are apprehensive about the long list of pay-related anomalies that had arisen from the previous Pay Revision and are yet to be resolved. The DUTA also appeals to the Government to release the Dearness Relief for pensioners at the earliest since it has not been released for the last two installments,” the statement further read.
