HUBLI: Members of the Karnatak University College Teachers Association (KUCTA) staged a protest here against the delay in the submission of the UGC Pay Commission report.

According to a release issued here by Zonal Secretary of the All India Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organisations (AIFUCTO) Lingaraj Angadi, in response to a nationwide call, teachers of various colleges in the district attended work wearing black badges on Wednesday.

Prof. Angadi has said that the Union Government appointed UGC Pay Commission, headed by G.K. Chaddha in September 2006, and had given a year’s time to the commission to submit its report.

The commission members had visited several States collecting opinions of vice-chancellors, teachers’ representatives and educational experts. However, the commission had not yet submitted its report, he has said.

Prof. Angadi said that although the national federation had been pressuring the Union Government, the Pay Commission had failed to submit the report.
