Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human resource development (MHRD), Govt. of India has informed the secretary, University Grant Commission vide OO. No. 1-7/2015-U.II(1) dated 2nd November, 2017, scheme of revision of pay of teachers and equivalent cadres in Universities and colleges following the pay revision of CG employees on the recommendation of 7th CPC. 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.

i) In Universities and Colleges, there shall be only three designations, namely Assistant Professors, Associate Professors and Professors. Order also stated that designations of Library and Physical Education Personnel at various levels will remain unchanged.

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.

vi) Revised pay and revised rate of Dearness Allowance shall be 1.1.2016

vii) The pay of Principals in Under Graduate shall be equivalent to
the pay of Associate Professor with the existing special allowance of
Rs.2000/- per month.
viii) The pay of Principals in Post Graduate Colleges shall be equivalent to the
pay of Professor with the existing special allowance of Rs.3000/- per
month.

vii) Arrear payment shall be made during the current year.


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
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)?

  • 25% Yes
  • 72% No
  • 3% Can't say
832 people have voted in this poll.

      chairman sir,

      It is requested to release the 7th pay aicte pay scales at the earliest as UGC is already published gezette Notification for university college lecturers.How many days to require to publish the notification, every time when pay commission constituted only AICTE college lecturers will get last birth, why not the same can not be taken in to consideration at a time with central employees. Almost two years completed still they are playing and waiting for some more times.

      Some people are just playing with the emotions of newly appointed teachers...specifically those who were appointed after 1/1/2016 and are concerned with their Ph.D increments. Let us be responsible...pls don't post comments which are baseless or are not backed by logic. Further perhaps we need to wait till the UGC's detailed notification on revised pay.

      Hello Prof Rigzuu

      Kindly don't give the wrong calculation.. for example : What about T.A. ??? How do u calculate without knowing X,y or z category ??? Strange.. wait till the detailed notification is not displayed.. all the wrong information you are giving to the teachers. For eg: withdrawal of 5 increments already given to the teachers who joined after 1/1/2016. There is never retrospective effect. Kindly read the rules and speak with the evidence. I am not here to hurt your feelings but u r surely playing with the others..

      Thanks and regards

      In Karnataka – all higher education orders are something unique. As per recent order No. ED60/DCE/2016 dated 06. 12.2017 nine faculties are being placed in Grade II Principal with a scale of Rs. 37400-67000 with AGP of Rs. 10000 without any doctorate or publications or UGC norms. No Principal post is so far created in aided colleges or other Government Colleges.

      Even PhD increment has created total confusion. Unlike UGC order, those who got their PhD during December 2005, they have to satisfy with 420+420 = 840, that too from 19-09-2007 onwards. It is not taken for DA or other calculation, has to be kept separately until their retirement! Don’t you think it is strange? However, it is a fact in Karnataka. If he had obtained his PhD after 1.1.2006, he got two increments of 3% each, a total of 6%, that too from 19-09-07, if he obtained his PhD after 24-12-2009, he got three increments of 3% as per revised UGC order. The Govt started discriminating Govt faculty and those who are working in aided colleges, those who are working in aided colleges are being instructed to pay back the advance increments of 6 % that they got from 19.09.2007 - if they had been awarded PhD before 1.1.2006. All are strange orders…

      Hundreds of court cases are being filed against Department of Collegiate Education in Karnataka…. Still, UGC arrears are not entirely paid to faculty. No promotion to faculty, newly recruited faculty are not being paid their salary, no proper planning, whether we are moving in the right direction?

    • profile image

      Dr. Suresh 5 weeks ago

      I just wanted information from other states. In Karnataka, we received a circular from Director of Collegiate Education and Joint Director asking respective Principals to recover the amount of DA/HRA paid with UGC arrears from 1-1-2006 to December 23, 2009 from their salaries payable to December month onwards. I would be delighted if I get inputs from faculty from other states, whether you were being paid UGC Arrears with DA and HRA from 1.1.2006 or whether you got financial benefits like DA, HRA, etc from the date of UGC order, i. 2008 or 2009 depending on the case.

    • profile image

      Mayya 5 weeks ago

      Yes, Ajay, you are right. All Collegiate New Pensioners of Tamil Nadu should start exercises to keep their health in good condition now. In Tamil Nadu, the ceiling limit for pension, family pension and enhanced family pension shall be revised from Rs.38,500/- to Rs. 1,12,500/- (i.e. 50% of maximum pay in Pay Matrix of Rs.2,25,000/-), from Rs.23,100/- to Rs.67,500/- (i.e. 30% of maximum pay in Pay Matrix of Rs.2,25,000/-) and Rs.38,500/- to Rs. 1,12,500/- respectively. Therefore, if the revised pension or family pension or enhanced family pension worked out as detailed in paragraph (i) above exceeds the applicable ceiling limit, it shall be restricted to Rs. 1,12,500/-, Rs.67,500/- and Rs. l,12,500/-respectively.

      How about Pensioners retired from Central and State Universities? After 2-11-2017, till today (8-12-2017)no orders were issued for pensioners either by MHRD or UGC . Then only, State Governments can issue orders. Thus the Senior citizens are left in lurch. National Pensioners Day is celebrated on 17th December. Hope orders will be issued atleast before the Pensioners Day, with a delay of one and a half month.

      It's not confusing at all. You will not be awarded any increment. In fact the advance increments awarded to the teachers (with Ph.D. ) after 1/1/2016 are also included under the same category. The advance increments are already withdrawn in many universities.

      As the same promotion scheme was given into VIth pay. Then how it is different from earlier.? As per my knowledge there will be no retrospective action. It may apply on those who r going to be appointed after 2nd Nov. 2017. Otherwise it's big blow to the M.phil and Ph.D. candidates. We must wait till the detailed UGC notification is displayed. there is an example in last pay where the advantage of one PH.D. increment was given in the later date after the announcement of VIth pay. Similarly the same condition applies that PH.D. or M.

      Phil . Increments will be withdrawn after 2,Nov. But it's really hurting to know that how Teachers in the UGC committee took an action against the teaching fraternity.

      Dear Anonymous, If you were appointed on or after 31-12-2015 up to the date before the issuance of this Government Order by your respective State Government, then your pay (including all the PhD increments, other incentives such as additional increments over and above the PhD increments given by the Selection Committee for certain valid reasons, personal pay if any) + AGP will have to be summed up and such result is to be multiplied by 2.57 and to be matched to the correct quoted stage in your new pay column. If you are appointed on or after the date of announcement by your State Government, you would be treated as appointed under new rules. This is what pay fixation is.

      Dear Dr C j ,...Yes... it is to be in simple past, here present perfect might have been used to reflect 'the process of completions' ....is still being felt by the writer & is also to coordinate with the rest of simple present verbal expressions . But clear past events should be expressed in simple past in

      dichotomous clauses.

      I appreciate your comments Shobha Nagnur, but with reservations. Indeed Indian society is complex. When people at the helm of affairs are hoarding Millions of New currency notes in underground tunnels, totally dedicated teachers with a little bit of Self-esteem tinged with 'minute Self interest' ...it seems ..is not objectionable. Your comment actually questions the century old western education legacy we imbibed....OK....I appreciate & value your remarks, but the rest of the Society all around, is reaping the fruits, it's not to my flavor, to restrict only UGC section of Teachers & particularly advise them to refrain from what is genuinely deserving. We are a minute of part large Indian Society, but with all priceless accountability..... " It is the duty of Elected Leaders/Politicians to draw effective plans to improve poor sections of Indian society, to annihilate poverty, Exfoliating their venomous propensity of en-massing and hoarding unimaginable quantum of Indian currency in tunnels & in Swiss banks". Whether this social affliction is an appropriate point to discuss here by us. Our demand for the implementations of revised UGC scales is just. Kindly have broad perspective. Be Roman in Rome , ...(should be) ....... ...... ..... in India . Have a good day.

      I am surprised that most teachers are not happy with the scales. Let us reflect upon ourselves. Do we really deserve such high salaries? In most traditional universities there are at least three months of paid holidays. Regarding PhD increaments, the policy has always been flawed, those who joined with PhD especially before 96 when PhD holders were few) have been at a loss. Let us not pay much heed to that. Let us think about improving standards of our teaching standards. When I am reading the comments I am pained that most of them have not been able to write grammatically correct sentences or have used the appropriate words. In a country where poverty is a major issue be happy and content with what we have. We are already overpaid. Think about ways to improve teaching. It is shameful that India is ranked low in higher education standards. I have completed my PhD in 92 and is now the head of the department and is more than happy with the salary. Think of those millions of Indians who earn just enough for two meals and be thankful to god for what we have got.

      Dear Dave sir... I have come across one of your comment, made 2 weeks ago.....which goes as...

      "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. ..........In our University, we have many such examples. They accept previous pay commission from later date."

      Could you please send a link to the document/s or a copy wherein it is stated that one can adopt to a new pay scale from later date and not from the date notified by appropriate authority....!!

      It will be a favour.....I am going to be affected by the recent provision regarding stoppage of Ph.D increment...as I completed my Ph.D in February 2017 after placement of my service in Associate Scale..

      Thank You.

      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.
