About

This blog is an effort to put together resources for the fight for a just pay structures for college and university teachers in India.

A “Joint Action Committee”,  a coalition of teachers from Jawaharlal Nehru University, University of Delhi and Jamia Millia Islmia, was formed to continue the agitation of the teachers of these institutions against the perilous proposals put forward by the MHRD notification (31.12.2008) and the UGC Draft Notification (5.2.2009). These proposals threaten to work to the contrary of the stated policy of the Central Government to attract and retain talent in the field of higher education.

The coalition was necessitated by the arbitrary calling off of the agitation by the FEDCUTA Leadership.

    Hi
    I just wanted to add to what has been put forth by the JAC. Please include the demands for a better payment to the Guest Lecturers. The existing Payment is actually peanuts compared to the amount of study and work we are supposed to put in.

    WE ALL MUST GO AHEAD TOGETHER WITH THE CHARTER OF DEMANDS..ALL DEMANDS ARE JUSTIFIED…MHRD & UGC MUST STOP PLAYING NASTY HIDE & SEEK WITH THE DIGNITY OF TEACHERS…

    Great!! We are all one!

    Bring all teachers of Higher Education in one fold…All Assistant Professors, Associate Professor and Professors be they in UGC, AITEC or else where….

    MHRD should take initiative to bring all teachers (teaching under other ministry or autonomous societies)under one roof
