Aided-college teachers yet to get salary for two months

Staff Correspondent

Officials say salary has been credited with the treasury


600 teachers are waiting for their salary for December and January

‘AMCUT has appealed to the Government to pay salary by fifth of every month'


MANGALORE: Teachers drawing University Grants Commission (UGC) pay scale in aided-degree colleges under Mangalore University are worried as they are yet to get their salary for the past two months.

With just three days left for February to end, 600 teachers are waiting for their salary for December and January, president of the Association of Mangalore University College Teachers (AMUCT) Ummappa Poojary P. told The Hindu.

Credited

Mr. Poojary said that though the officials of the Department of Collegiate Education maintained that the Government had credited the salary grant with the district treasury, teachers were yet to get it.

H.R. Natraj Urs, Joint Director, Department of Collegiate Education, Mangalore Region, confirmed that the grant had been credited with the district treasury.

Hope

Mr. Poojary hoped that teachers will get their salary in a day or two.

It is not for the first time that the Government has delayed the salary of teachers from aided colleges.

Earlier, they got their salary for October and November last together in December.

UGC pay

Mr. Poojary said that the Government had implemented the revised University Grants Commission (UGC) pay scale to college teachers with effect from June 2010. Thereafter, teachers got their salary as usual for the first three months.

Trouble

Then the trouble started. This has been attributed to exhaustion of budget allocation towards salary for 2010-11 made on the basis of old pay scales.

The State Government should have made an additional allocation on the basis of the revised pay scale at once till March 2011, Mr. Poojary said.

It is making the additional budgetary allocation part by part.

It has resulted in the delay.

Delay

He said that though the Association of Mangalore University College Teachers had appealed to the State Government to pay the salary by fifth of every month, the delay continued to affect many teachers.

Mr. Poojary said that the State Government had issued on order implementing the revised pay scale with effect from December 24, 2009.

But in reality, the Government paid the revised salary with effect from June 2010. The State Government had not paid the difference amount (salary arrears) of the revised pay scale for more than five months, from December 24, 2009 to May 31, 2010.
