It would be applicable to teachers in the Higher Educational Institutions under the purview of the UGC. Approved revised pay and other service conditions are as follows.

ii)The rationalized entry pay for Assistant Professor in the pay band of Rs. 15600-39,000 with AGP of Rs 6000, 7000 and rs. 8000 will be Rs. 57,700, Rs. 68,900 and Rs. 79,800, respectively.

iii) The rationalized entry pay of Associate Professor in Pay Band of Rs 37400-67,000 with AGP of Rs 9000 will be Rs. 1,31,400 whereas entry pay of Professor in same pay band with AGP of Rs. 10,000 will be Rs 1,44,200.

iv) Those Professors who are placed in HAG will draw entry pay of Rs 1,82,200.

iii) The pay of Vice Chancellor will be fixed at Rs. 2,10,000 with the existing Special Allowance of Rs. 5000/- per month.

Pay Fixation Method (7th CPC)

  • In the new system as per 7th CPC, concept of academic pay and pay band is changed to Academic level and Cells. The first academic level (Corresponding to AGP of Rs 6000) is numbered as AL 10. Other levels are 11, 12, 13A, 14 and 15. Fitment factor or Index of Rationalization is 2.67 for AGP less than Rs.10,000 and 2.72 for the AGP of Rs 10,000 and above.
  • The pay matrix is shown in the table shown below in the snap.
  • On January 1, 2016, the existing pay (Existing Pay in Pay Band + AGP0 in the pre-revised pay as on 31st December, 2015 shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. The figure (product so arrived) is to be located in the Academic Level (corresponding to pay band and AGP in the new Pay Matrix. Equal or next higher cell in the Academic Level (if equal is not available) shall be the revised pay. In case figure arrived is less than the first cell then pay shall be fixed in the 1st Cell of that Academic Level.
  • If more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment (3%) may be given for every two stages bunched.

To understand 7th pay fixation in better way, please visit Gazette notification on the acceptance ... of employees.

UGC 7CPC PAY MATRIX

Promotion

Whenever an employee gets a promotion, he would be given a notional increment in his existing Academic Level of Pay (moving to next higher cell) and the pay in the cell be located in the new Academic Level to corresponding post (promoted one).

Increment

Important change as per 7th CPC is that there shall be two dates for grant of increment namely, First January and first July of every year. Earlier there was a single date for grant of increment ( First July).However, increment date will depend on the date of appointment, promotion or grant of financial up-gradation.Rate of increment is 3 percent. Annual increment is given in the pay matrix table.

Pl. give your opinion clicking the correct option

Are you satisfied with the approved package (Same as shown in the snapshot above)?

      Ph.d. increments should not be scrapped. At least, keep them as it is, if it is not possible to increase on academic ground. That,s our request to MHRD.

      Dear Polytechnic Faculty, Perhaps last revision for you was in year 2010 and faculty was fitted in with pay scales applicable for central government employees and grade pay was based on UGC/AICTE notification. It is most likely that AICTE will do the same as done in past and pay scales will be similar to UGC & CFTI scales. I think you have to wait gazette notification and implementation of UGC and CFTI faculty.

      The the Scale of Pay for Post- Graduate Principal consists two Scales [ Rs 16400- 450- 20900- 500- 22400 ] with two increment components viz Rs 450 and 500 in the Vth UGC Pay Commission mentioned as S 27 and S 29 . Thus it is evident that it has two minimums ie Rs 53000/ against the minimum Basic Pay of Rs 16400, and Rs 57400/ against the minimum Basic Pay of Rs 20900 respectively. But the Corresponding Basic Pay in the 7th UGC Scales of Pay against Rs 57400/ is not being provided. Will the MHRD Ministry rectify the mistake whereby it can rectify the mistake unwittingly committed?

      Rationalization factor is used to create first stage. Ex. 49200 *2.67=131400/-. The later stages were created with an increment of 3% with rounding of 100. For any existing associate professor in 37400-67000 with agp 9000, the Basic plus agp as on 1/1/2016 is multiply by 2.57 for getting appropriate stage in pay matrix. Ex. my Band pay on 1/1/2016 is 53420 and agp is 9000, so 53240+9000=62420

      62420*2.57= 160419.

      In pay matrix, the matching figure is 161600.( Please not the table mentioned in this page shows 161700 which is not correct, it is 161600 as per UGC order)

      So the basic pay will be fixed at 161600 as on 1/1/2016 as per Seventh pay.

      Please don't confuse, every existing employee pay are multiple by 2.57 ONLY. The first stage with higher rat.factor is created only to attract talent.

      IN THAT ORDER IT IS SAID THAT THE RATIONED FACTOR IS 2.67 FOR THOSE WITH AGP LESS THAN 10000 AND 2.72 FOR OTHERS. BUT, FOR FIXATION IT IS GIVEN THAT THE MUTIPLICATION FACTOR IS 2.57. WHICH ONE IS CORRECT? CAN ANY ONE CLEAR THIS?

(subject to correction ) . Experts say the given table is for one time placement at Academic Level & in a particular cell, but not at, added increment of 3% every time, which shall be a double jumping, anyway, let us wait for clarity.

      Respected all,

      PhD. has been used as a

      play-ball ever since this UGC has been delegated power to decide the

      pay structure of the teachers of higher education. In an earlier revision PhD. was required for even

      the post of Assistant Professor. Later

      revision modified it to be the essential requirement for Associate

      Professors&Professors. 6th UGC has

      made to be the requirement of Professors only.This condition is carried over in the 7th revision. Most of the colleges do not have facilities for carrying out any research. And they are offering most of the courses in under graduate level. PhDs may be insisted

      for Professors of Postgraduate & research deciplines in universities &

      Postgraduate institutions. It is pity that the prestigious research institutes also are brought under this scheme. It is time to consider that a single revision (CPC) to cover all the categories because there is no any special consideration for these teachers, the very purpose of

      constituting this UGC.

      PhD incentives is not a lottery. Either everybody should get or nobody. Somebody who joins after January 2016 will not get, those who got anything in fifth pay will not get. Only people will get incentives for their PhD completed after 2006 till 2015. Is it the meaning? Nobody should get any incentive wef January 2016 or everybody must for having same qualifications. Divide n rule is not correct in academic world. Thanks.

      A very simple answer : no phd increments to the teachers who joined after 1st Jan,2016. The increments already received will be deducted from the arrears. Now there will be no advantage (in terms of increments ) to M.Phil or Ph.D. candidates . Acche Din Aayenge...

      7th Pay is effective from 1-1-2016. Prospective means from the above date only (due date). Hence, increments will be deducted from 1-1-2016 on wards. If they removed from the date of notification i.e. 2nd November 2017, Pay also effective from that date only. Hence Pay, DA and advance increments effective from 1-1-2016 and other allowances effective from 1-7-2017 onwards.

      Another blow to the incentive for acquiring higher degree like mphil, PhD by the central government. The ugc circular for 7th pay comm issued on 2nd Nov/17. Therefore, it can not be in retrospective effect, that is 1st Jan,16. From that point of view, they may discontinue increments from 2nd Nov. 17.

      In every pay commission, it is one of the provision already available that you can adopt new pay from later date. If it is not suitable to accept from 1/1/2016, you can accept it from the later date. Ex. Suppose you are getting additional increments from say 1/9/2016, you are free to run sixth pay up to 31/12/2016. And then adopt from 1/1/2017. Here you may lose some arrear amount, but for a longer-term, this will give more advantage. In our University, we have many such examples. They accept previous pay commission from later date.

      Teachers union should insist now for the raise of age to 65 in all colleges and universities and enhancement should not link with teaching alone since many universities employ teachers as researchers in projects where involvement in teaching is minimal. Age of 65 should be uniformly applicable everywhere. Central Government has raised the age of doctors to 65 and several states has followed the path. Why not it should be done for teachers?

      Dear Sourav, it appears from your statement (Grade Pay) that your pay is fixed as per pay revision of Central Government employees and not as per UGC scales. I believe that your pay is likely to be fixed as per pay matrix of 7th CPC for central government employees. Dear Rohini Singh, there are more chances that increments granted after 1.1.2016 are to be withdrawn and payment in such a case has to be reverted. However, chances are that this act will be challenged by the affected people in the Court of Law.

      present research methods are corrupt, majority of PhD degrees are purchased in the market, so central govt, had done away with incentives, good decision. in fact very few researchers have analytical, investigating insight, majority doctorates don't deserve PhDs, let them openly present their research ability on public platform, 90% will fail, bcz they get PhD degrees from the back door, managing the guide, appeasing the guide, so majority research degrees genuinely belong to guides, not to researchers. So MHRD should investigate & assess already All awarded (Chinese Product like) less qualitative PhD degrees by a team of 'Academic Jury', then PhD fish will be out of water.

      Multiplication factor is uniform among all govt. employee. Why teachers demanding more?. If more notes are printed, inflation rise sharply and ultimately the increased amount becomes useless. So, accept it and be happy.

      2.57 is fitment factor so no mistake. 2.67 is used to work out entry-level pay. Less than Rs.10000 hike after 10 years!!!

      Dear AIFUCTO leaders,....... the entire University & College Teaching community is behind you, the central Govt.'s callous attitude creates a rift among different states' teaching faculty. As the leadership demands 100% central assistance is the only yard stick for 7th UGC pay revision, how could some states which are in deep budget deficits, implement these revised scales, so Let's rise as one voice to demand for 100% assistance to states. It is the post-operative important time to prove MHRD's mettle in revising UGC scales & ensure implementation.

      Mr. Karthi

      The ugc will withdraw all your increments and they will take all the phd incentives from your arrears. You will be again at the entry level. I mean you are still a debutant in this academic world inspite of holding Ph.D. degree. Really feeling very pity and with all the young phd holders Researchers and academicians. It's very frustrating and disappointing for all of us.

      It is really a shame for me to work as an academician in such a government regime who doesn't have any respect and honour for the teaching community.We really criticize your decision which is against the newly appointed teachers and availing the benefits of 5 non compounded advance incentive. Your stupid move will throw them at zero level. it is very disappointing and frustrating with the decision of 7 CPC introduced by the UGC and Government. We are cheated and fooled by the UGC and Government. After doing M.Phil and Ph.D. we are not given any priority over the normal Master passed students. It is worthless to do phd or any research work as there is no respect for the young researchers or academicians. It's very discouraging and will not promote researcher to be competent enough because they will look for a job instead of doing research. Now they will research to find a job instead of doing real research in academics. Everybody is feeling cheated after reading the new 7th pay CPC released on 2nd of November for the teachers which has truly annoyed  and disappointed us. We read in the circular that lncentive increment for higher qualification shall not be given to the newly appointed teachers . According to the new pay revised -The incentive structure is built-in in the pay structure itself wherein those

      having M.Phil or Ph.D. degree will progress faster under CAS. What a stupid decision as it was already introduced in the last pay commission i.e., In 6th pay.

      We all the Assistant Professors across the nation would like to inform you that we all are thrown into the hell with this unfair justice against PH.D. holder . You people are really not working for the benefits of the university employees but you all are worst than Medicare who have hold the position against the true and hard working academician. ph.D. holders are entitled to get 5 non compounded increments for holding pH.D. degree. New pay commission report indicates that it will withdraw the advance increments. It is a huge loss to us as we have worked day and night to acquire this degree and distinguish us from a normal faculty. Many of my colleagues have joined the university on or after Jan, 2016 before the released reports. If the decision will be executed then it will be really frustrating and disappointing. It will disturb us mentally and physically.It's a known fact  that new pay commission is released after 10 years which bring happiness but it is introduced to kill the desire and hope of the already appointed Assistant Professors and will have adverse effect on us as we will be at heavy loss. We are bound to return the payment received against the Ph.D. increments and we will be back to the entry level. It's really humiliating and inhuman decision against the teachers who are already availing their 5 non compounded increments for their Ph.D. degree.

      As it is announced on 2nd on November so it should be executed from the released date for any new recruitment across India. It will be really annoying for the new teachers appointed after 1stt Jan, 2016 and getting the benefits of five increments . It's very disappointing and humiliating and totally not in the favour of entire teaching community. Kindly take an essential step and reconsider the request and be kind enough not to humiliate the new young academicians.

      It seems you people are not working on the plot of SABKA SAATH SABKA VIKAAS.

      Therefore you are kindly requested to take an essential and helpful step to solve the problem of the Assistant Professors.

      PRESS RELEASE

      New Delhi 03-11-17

      After a long protracted struggle by AIFUCTO the 7th UGC Pay revision scheme was released by the MHRD on 2nd November, 2017.

      With utmost shock and dismay we are to say that this has belied the hopes and aspirations of lakhs of University and College teachers of the country, putting the sincerity and commitment of the central govt. to higher education into dock. The reason of non-sharing of the report to the stake holders like AIFUCTO is now crystal clear as the hidden agenda stands exposed. The long awaited recommendations of the 7th PRC are finally brought out. AIFUCTO already expressed its thankfulness to the MHRD when it announced on October 11, 2017 that it would implement the 7th PRC. It had also stated that unless the full report is published AIFUCTO would not be able to come out with any comments because AIFUCTO had not been apprised or communicated about the recommendations as has been the norm in the past. The government maintained stoic silence on the recommendations and moved in a clandestine manner till its announcement.

      AIFUCTO has been consistently demanding for the 100% central assistance to the states for uniform and simultaneous implementation of the revised UGC Scales of Pay for the college and university teachers of the country. Despite our demand and struggle on this issue, the central government very callously and carelessly has declared only 50% central assistance to the states, that to, only for 39 months, from 1.1.16 to 31.03.19. This is the real cooperative federalism of the present central government. The shifting of the financial burden to the states is a well-calculated design and conspiracy to deny the revised UGC Scales of pay to the majority of the University and college teachers who serve under state universities. Many states may not implement the 7th UGC Pay Scales due to reduced central assistance. Again this is to divide the college teachers of the country as both AIFUCTO and FEDCUTA have shown historic solidarity and unity of the teachers in our struggle. AIFUCTO strongly condemns this decision of the government and demands that this be immediately reversed and 100% assistance be given to the states for uniform implementation of the revised UGC Scales of Pay in the country in the interests of quality higher education.

      AIFUCTO strongly condemns the suggestion of denial of incentives for M.Phil and PHD both at the entry point and during service years. This reflects the extreme insensitivity of the central government towards the hard work and challenges faced by researchers in the country in getting these degrees, thereby reducing the dignity and devaluing the significance of these prestigious degrees.

      It is to be noted that the office of Principal has been demeaned by creating difference in their ranks on the basis of their appointment in Undergraduate and postgraduate colleges. Principals of undergraduate colleges, as per the new notification, will now be treated at par with the Associate Professors. This surely is a divisive move designed to create rift and tension among the administrative heads vying for the same post in undergraduate and post graduate colleges. Also the special allowances for Principals have not been raised. It remains the same at Rs 2000 and 3000 respectively for Principals of UG and PG colleges respectively.

      We appeal to the government to reconsider the decision and provide 100% central assistance to the states along with other necessary changes after consultation with AIFUCTO and other teachers’ organizations.

      President,AIFUCTO General Secretary,AIFUCTO

      If someone completed his Ph.D after 01/01/2016 and he is in associate professor scale.

      In such situation what is the use of his Ph.D. for CAS.

      It is total injustice for such teacher

      In sixth pay commission, there is a difference between direct recruit and CAS for professor. Direct recruit used to be fixed at 43000 minimum,where for CAS, when you get promoted after three year of Associate professor, the only increase was 1000 in AGP. With this the basic was always less than 43000.

      But after 7PC, there is no difference in direct recruit and CAS. Both of them will be fixed at 144200 minimum in grade 14.

      So people who got promoted to professor during 6pc regime, will be victimised. Senior people from 6PC will get same or less salary than people promoted on or after 1.1.2016.

      7th CPC removed advanced/additional increments to all employees, including teachers, scientists and bureaucrats. Scientists and bureaucrats were getting 2 non-compoundable increments up to GP 8900/- and scientist used to get Rs. 4000/- as special scientist pay at the GP 10000, which were also removed by the 7th CPC.

      As per the UGC draft notification, Those who are in service as on 31st December, 2015 will get 14% benefit of basic pay, approximately. Those joined on or after 1st January, 2016 with 5 advance increments for Ph.D will get benefit of 2 to 3% of basic pay. The reason is that for entry level Asst.Professor, initial pay was fixed by multiplication factor of 2.67 (17-18% increase). If you deduct 5 increments (5x3% = 15%), then the real benefit is 2 to 3%, approximately. If any body pay after fixation is getting less than entry pay (due to 2 or 3 advance increments only), will get entry pay only.

      @swathi et al: some of us have a doubt that their advance increments benefit would vanish ... pay fixations do not deny your existing benefits -- simply take your total pay (excluding all allowances) as on 31-12-2015 (or the date on which you joined in the post) and multiply it with multiplier and take the nearest higher cell in your column in the pay matrix. That would be the new basic pay.

      in 7th pay every other category of central govt employees have retained their pay structure compared to 6th pay. But for teachers,by removing the 5 increments for Phd ( which varies for state govts like 3/4 increments for phd), the govt has reduced the salary of teachers in 7th pay, as compared to 6th pay. It is pathetic.

      I joined as Assistant Professor in Nov, 2016 in Central university and I am getting another 5 increments for phd and now there is rule for no advance increments according to 7th CPC. Then what will be my position ? If I will again come back to entry level and the increment amount will be returned to the the employer ? Don't u think that it's a loss to the many teachers who joined the university after 1st Jan,2016 and getting the increment against the qualification of PHD. It will really demotivate the candidates to pursue the higher studies.
