Centre on Thursday came out with a package to help state governments implement the 6th Pay Commission pay structure for teachers in degree technical colleges.
Under the package, the Centre will provide partial financial assistance to those states who want to implement the revised pay structure for teachers in degree technical colleges, including architecture, town planning, pharmacy and applied arts and crafts institutions.
The state governments can implement the revised pay at par with the UGC scales of pay, a notification issued by the HRD Ministry in this regard said.
The financial assistance will be given only to the state and state-aided institutions where 100 per cent maintenance is being met by the state governments.
The union government will provide financial assistance up to 80 per cent of the additional expenditure to be incurred by the states for implementing the revised package for the period from January 2006 to March 2010.
The states will have to bear the rest of the cost for this period. However, the states will have to bear the full cost for the revised pay structure from April 2010, the notification said.
The Central assistance will be restricted to revision of pay only, it said.
