The DTF invites you to a discussion on the MHRD Notification on pay revision on 31 January 2009 (Saturday), 2 pm, in Room 22, Arts Faculty.
The DTF Leaflet entitled The MHRD pay notification: The facts behind the hype made an initial critique of the Notification showing the downgrading of the teaching profession. Unfortunately, the DUTA leadership has been unwilling to accept this fact. It has failed to circulate a critique of the Notification to form the basis of discussion over appropriate demands and necessary course of action in the Staff Associations. Subsequently, about 1500 teachers have requisitioned a DUTA General Body meeting. A DUTA Extended Executive meeting has now been called on 2 February 2009 to be followed by a General Body Meeting on 5 February 2009.
The purpose of the discussion is to help to understand better the consequences of the notified scheme of pay revision both for incumbent teachers as well as for those whom universities and colleges wish to attract. A better understanding is all the more necessary since a completely different scheme of pay scales has been introduced by the Sixth Pay Commission. There are also some significant divergences between the scheme introduced by the Sixth Pay Commission and the scheme notified for teachers by the MHRD, for instance the distinction between Grade Pay and Academic Grade Pay.
We invite you to participate and contribute so that there is an informed discussion and decision on action at the DUTA Extended Executive Meeting and the General Body Meeting.
