The long wait is over now. The state government has notified payment of revised UGC scales to the teachers of universities and colleges with effect from January, 2006

    PATNA: The long wait is over now. The state government has notified payment of revised UGC scales to the teachers of universities and colleges with effect from January, 2006. While the new payscales would
be paid to the teachers from the month of September, the arrears would be paid in five annual instalments beginning from the financial year 2011-12.


   According to a notification issued by the state HRD department here on late Thursday evening, the teachers of traditional universities, degree col-leges, grant-in-aid minority colleges and government colleges,
besides the vice-chancellors and pro-vice-chancellors would get the revised scales with effect from January, 2006.


    While the Central government would meet 80 per cent of the additional financial burden on payment of revised scales from January, 2006, to March, 2010, the state government would meet the 20 percent expenses. However, from April, 2010, onward, the state government would have tomeet the entire expenses.


   The state government has decided to implement the revised payscales proposed by the Central government along with the conditions and guide-lines except the age of superannuation of teachers. The UGC has recom-mended the age of superannuation of teachers to be 65 years. Along with the revised pay, the designations of teachers would also stand changed. Lecturers and readers would now be designated as assistant and associate professors respectively.


   As per notification, the payscale of assistant professor will be Rs 15,600-39,100 with academic grade pay (AGP) of Rs 6,000, while that of associate professor would be Rs 15,600-39,100 with AGP of Rs 8,000 (with less than three years of service as reader) and Rs 37,000-67,000 with AGP of Rs 9,000 to those associate professors who have completed three years of service.


   The payscale of professors will now be Rs 37,400-67,000 with an AGP of Rs 9000 to Rs 12,000. A directly recruited professor will, however, be placed at a minimum of Rs 43,000 in the payscale of Rs 37,400-67,000 with an AGP of Rs 10,000. The principal of a college will receive Rs 37,400-67,000 with AGP of Rs 10,000.

Functioning of CPWD Toll Free Number.-1800 114499

#fullpost{display:none;}
    The Central Public Works Department (CPWD) service centres across Delhi  has a toll free number to enable residents of the Government quarters to  lodge their complaints for repair and other works. To improve the efficiency  and quality of maintenance services being provided by CPWD Service Centres across Delhi, a new system of Computerized Registration of Complaints  through a Toll-Free No. (1800 114499) has been started.  The new service  enables generation of computerized record for registration of complaints,  their attendance, report to an feed-back from residents, etc. in an objective manner through a third party call centre.  These records enable the department to generate automatic reports on the efficiency, promptness  and the quality of service being provided by the CPWD Service Centres.

    In cases of delayed services or unsatisfactory services, the system provides for their onward transmission to senior supervisory officers automatically.   However, since these services have been launched very recently, there are  some initial glitches resulting into occasional complaints by the residents.  Once the teething troubles are over, the new system is expected to  substantially improve the efficiency and quality of services of CPWD Service  Centres.  In view of the advantages of the new system, there is no proposal  to revert back to the old system.

    This information was given by Shri Saugata Roy, Minister of State, Urban  Development in reply to a question in Lok Sabha Today.

Federation seeks health insurance for pensioners

   The All India Federation of Pensioner’s Associations has appealed to the  Central and State governments to provide health insurance cover to all their  employees and retirees.

    At the association’s two-day annual general body meeting that got under way  here on Friday, its representatives said employees of the Post and Telegraph  Department should also be made beneficiaries of Central Government Health  Scheme (CGHS). The Centre should also provide more CGHS facilities in
districts as pensioners were forced to seek treatment at nearby government  hospitals in their absence, they added.

   “All pensioners, whether they retired before 2006 or after, should be  treated on a par and the financial benefits due to them should also be  equal,” the association president K.S. Jayavelu said. He also appealed for  increasing the pension for destitute elderly persons in the State to  Rs.1,000.

    Members of the association suggested that pension for those covered under  Employment Provident Fund be “reasonably revised”.

    Principal Secretary, Health, V.K. Subburaj, inaugurated the meeting and  released two books – Healthy Nutrition for the Elderly and Elders’ Health –  authored by geriatrician V.S. Natarajan.

    Mr. Subburaj said only half of those who work in the government sector  retire with full retirement benefits. Others spend several years running  from one department to the other to settle “audit objections”.

    Sometimes retirees spend even up to 20 years in their efforts to get their  full pensions, he said. Unless audit objections are sorted out, retirement  benefits would be withheld, he added.

    “Usually we are lenient with employees who are retiring. But sometimes  action has to be taken based on audit objections. Government sector  employees should know the rules and not delay taking decisions to avoid  audit objections,” he suggested.

    He urged the retirees to opt for health insurance scheme and annual check up  to avoid high medical bills. Anyone with an annual income of less than  Rs.72,000 was eligible for treatment under the State government’s Kalaignar  insurance scheme, Mr. Subburaj said.

    “We have master health check up at government hospitals. Senior citizens  have special schemes at the GHs and are given preferential treatment,” he  added.
