7th pay commission: In a good news for teachers, the Modi government on Tuesday approved a proposal to extend the seventh pay commission recommendations to academic staff of government and aided technical institutions. The Ministry of Human Resource Development has granted Rs 1,241 crore for this purpose. Informing about the same, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters, "This will directly benefit a total of 29,264 teachers and other academic staff of state government funded institutes. Besides, about 3.5 lakh teachers and other academic staff of private colleges or institutions within the purview of All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) will also benefit from the approval."

"The central government will also reimburse 50 per cent of total additional expenditure to be incurred by these institutes for the payment of arrears on account of 7th Central Pay Commission implementation," Javadekar added. The minister said that the move will help technical institutions on attracting and retaining faculty of high academic standards.




After the announcement on 7th Pay Commission, Javadekar also said that the 10 per cent reservation quota for economically weaker sections of the general category would be implemented in all educational institutions from the 2019 academic year and there would be an increase of around 25 per cent seats in universities across the country.

"The reservation will be implemented from the 2019-2020 academic session itself. Nearly 25 per cent seats will be added to ensure that the reservation does not disturb the existing quota for SC, ST and other categories. There are around 40,000 colleges and 900 universities across the country and supernumerary quota will be provided in these," PTI quoted Javadekar as saying.
