It's raining sops for teachers, thanks to the HRD Ministry

Jan 30, 2019 16:48 IST

The Human Resource Development Ministry has revised allowances for teachers and academic staff based on 7th Pay Commission recommendations. The move bumps up incomes for 30,000 teaching staff in Central Universities, 5,500 in deemed-to-be universities and 7 lakh teachers in state universities. This also means an additional liability of over 1200 crores for the government. Meanwhile, the University Grants Commission has also hiked the fee for honorarium guest faculty to 1,500 rupees per lecture from the previous 1000 rupees.
