Press Release

19-03-2010

Hundreds of university and college teachers from all over India under the banner of the All India Federation of University and College teachers Organisations of India (AIFUCTO) gathered in the Juntar Mantar to stage a dharna and took out a rally to the Parliament.

The teachers demanded immediate issue of the UGC Regulations which has been pending with the MHRD though the same has been approved by the UGC and sent to the MHRD for its approval. The teachers have also been demanding the rectification of anomalies since the last pay revision. The teachers voiced their protest also over the non-implementation of UGC pay scales in Assam, Bihar, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya and Nagaland. There is also no uniformity in the payment of allowances and the age of retirement. The teachers wanted the MHRD to intervene effectively and solve the issues. The teachers were also worried that the Govt. of India has not paid to the States its commitment of 80% of the expenses incurred for the payment of the scales.

The teachers also voiced their protest against the reforms initiated by the MHRD to permit Foreign Education Providers into India and also the move to create a new apex body, the National Commission for Higher Education and Research subsuming the existing apex bodies like the UGC, AICTE etc. AIFUCTO demands that wider consultations have to be made with all the stake holders of Education before such reforms are brought in.

AIFUCTO has decided to intensify and go in for a national struggle if the demands are not met at the earliest.

Leaders of various political parties greeted the dharna which was led by Prof. James William, President AIFUCTO and Prof. Asok Barman, Gen. Secretary, AIFUCTO. Prof. K.K. Thekkadath, Chief-Editor, FISE Journal, Prof. V.P Singh, Prof. Rabi Roy, Prof. Jeya Gandhi, Prof Madhu Paranjape Secretaries and Prof. Vazir Nehra, Prof. Ganshyam Singh and other office bearers and leaders of State Organisations also addressed the gathering
