New Delhi, Oct 11 (UNI) The Federation of Central Universities' Teachers Association (FEDCUTA) today opposed the UGC appointed Chadha Committee recommedation on linking students evaluation and peer review with promotion of teachers.
In a meeting held here today, the Association demanded that promotion to professorship in colleges of Central Universities must be introduced, on the line of the Government's policy to grant three promotions in one's career.
It also demanded that readers, associate professors and lecturers, who were in the pre-revised scale of 12000-18300, must be placed in the pay band 4 instead of PB 3 as recommended by the UGC appointed Chadha Committee.
In a statement, FEDCUTA president A N Misra said the existing four-tier structure--lecturer, lecturer in senior scale, reader and professor--should not be disturbed and accordingly the hierarchies sought to be introduced among professors and readers should be scrapped.
He said the parity of librarian and computer professionals with that of pay scale, retirement age, study leave and entitlement due to research must be provided for.
He said the Association will be forced to agitate if these issues are not resolved amicably.
