This Friday,more than four thousand teachers and University employees and some students marched from Feroz Shah Kotla to the University Grants Commission (UGC) against the delay in the revised salaries under the 7th pay commission while the meeting of the commission was taking place.The banners and the slogans displayed the dismay of the protesters.

“Teachers and other university employees are anguish about the delay in disbursement of the revised salaries as per the 7th Pay Commission. There is a growing fear that it may be further delayed because of the funding formulas of 30-70 per cent notified by the MHRD” a press release issued by the Delhi University Teachers Association (DUTA) said.

According to the release of the MHRD office,those centres which are run by the centre will receive only 70 percent of the financial burden and the rest will be met the by the universities according to the pay commission. “This is an unprecedented attack on the character of the public-funded institutions as it threatens to reduce funds to institutions of higher learning. Also, State Universities have been allocated only 50 per cent of Central assistance and that too for a reduced period of 39 months, i.e. till 31.03.2019, as opposed to the Central assistance of 80% for 51 months in the last pay revision,‚Äù DUTA said in a press release.

The programme under DUTA and DUCKU receives criticism on the guideline that 30 percent of the financial burden of the annual year will be on the the Universities.The DUTA also said that this will increase the fees of the students studying in the colleges and thus increase the financial burden on the parents and decrease the importance of the college’s funded by government.
