Fat pay packages may be in the offing for faculty of Central technical educational institutions like IIT and IIMs as the Pay Review committee set up to recommend new scales for them will submit its report by the month end.
The committee, headed by former director of Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, Prof Govardhan Mehta, is unlikely to recommend any change in the four-tier structure in the faculty in IITs.
"We are compiling the report. By the end of this month, we will submit it to the Ministry of HRD," Mehta, who was in New Delhi, told PTI.
"There is nothing wrong in the four-tier structure like Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Professors. We are not in favour of change in this structure," he said.
Mehta's views comes as a contrast to the three-tier faculty structure adopted by the government for university and colleges. There is no lecturer post in the university and colleges.
"But the technical education system is different. IITs have their own system," Mehta said.
He said the committee has already met five times to discuss the matter. Earlier, it had met the representatives of the Central educational institutions like IITs, IIMs, NITs, IIITs and IISERs.
The committee has also got memorandum on the pay review from academicians and policy makers, he said.
