IIT faculty still unhappy with revised pay package

The government today came up with a revised pay package for faculty of Centrally Funded Technical Institutions (CFTIs), including IITs, but was silent on lifting the cap on promotion of professors, triggering protest from senior teaching staff who said it would affect the autonomy of the elite institutes.

The fresh notification brought out by the HRD Ministry on the pay structure of CFTIs said that the post of lecturer-cum-post-Doctoral Fellows will be redesignated as Assistant Professors on contract.

The Ministry had brought out a notification on August 18 this year on the revision of pay of teaching and non-teaching staff of CFTIs. The notification said that maximum 40 per cent of the professors can be promoted to senior grade depending on their performance.

This provision had sparked protest among the IIT faculty which demanded lifting of any cap on their promotion.

The fresh notification is silent on the issue.
