With government's assurance that the pay structure norms could be relaxed by IITs, the IIT Delhi Faculty Forum has decided to accept the 6th Pay Commission package.
"We have been given a lot of assurance by the government. We expect that the assurances will be implemented. We are asking our faculty to accept the new package," Prof S S Murthy, president of IIT Delhi Faculty Forum, said.
The IIT Delhi Faculty Forum met here for the last two days and passed a resolution today for accepting the new package.
However, the All India IIT Faculty Federation president Prof M Thenmozhi said the faculty forum of a few other IITs are waiting for some more time till the clear picture emerges about how the IITs are going to implement the promises made by the government.
The IIT Faculty Federation had gone on a day-long fast on September 24 to protest certain "anomalies" in the pay structure. The faculty was protesting 40 per cent cap on promotion of professors to senior grade and provision of contractual appointment at entry level.
