Pay Commission revised notification will be issued soon to IIT

Human Resource Development (HRD) minister Kapil Sibal told representatives of the All-India IIT Faculty Federation (AIIITFF) that the ministry had looked into the issues raised by them on the 6th Pay Commission and a revised notification will be issued soon.

A five-member AIIITFF delegation met Sibal in New Delhi on Tuesday. "He assured us that the issues which we had raised had been considered. He said the government had done whatever it could and some issues had been addressed. But he wasn’t specific on what those issues were. He said a new notification will be issued shortly," said IIT Bombay Faculty Forum secretary Soumyo Mukherji.

The federation, which was disappointed with the ministry’s response to the demands raised by faculty from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) on new pay scales and perks as per the 6th Pay Commission, had met on September 6 to take stock of the situation. A rejoinder to the ministry’s response, which had been prepared by AIIITFF, was also submitted to the minister on Tuesday.

The federation will now wait for the notification before deciding on the next course of action. "We’ll see whether the revised notification meets our expectations. We hope it will address our concerns. Thereafter, we’ll decide on the future course of action," said Mukherji.
