The catch here is that the State Governments will have to adopt the recommendations of the 7 Pay Commission on their own in order to bring the teachers of State funded universities under the Commission' revised pay scale.

Around 58,000 professors of 213 central universities, including IITs, will get full funding from the centre, said Prakash Javadekar, union minister for human resource development.

This comes after the implementation of the Commission for government servants.

He also added that the hike would be anywhere between Rs 10,400 and Rs 49,800 as against the extent entry pay due to the implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission for the pay of teachers.

The decision will include all the teachers and other equivalent academic staff in State Universities and the technical institutes of the Government.

However, the central government has confirmed that it would bear the additional burden of the pay scale revision at the state level. The pay revision will lead to an increase in entry pay growth by 22-28 per cent.

So, what is a pay commission? The measures proposed in the revised pay structure are expected to improve quality of higher education and also attract and retain talent, Javadekar said.

The government had previous year constituted a pay review Commission to implement the recommendations in educational institute, University and Colleges.

The pay hike will also be applicable to the faculty members at 119 centrally-funded technical institutions such as the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), Indian Institutes of Management (IIM), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) and IIITs. Keeping in mind the interests of those who get consolidated payment, fixed remuneration and honorarium, their salaries would be hiked by 30 per cent.
