In a major relief for staff of private unaided degree colleges and other higher educational institutions, the Bombay high court last week held that they were entitled to a revision in pay scale in accordance with the recommendations of the Sixth Pay Commission.

The employees of Mahatma Gandhi Mission, which runs medical and engineering colleges at Aurangabad and Nanded, had approached the high court in 2010 seeking direction to their management to revise their pay scales. The management took a stand that the government resolution issued in August 2009, to implement recommendations of different pay commissions, were applicable only to institutions receiving grant-in-aid from the government.The court, however, discarded the contentions holding the management was bound to apply hierarchical structure prepared by All India Council for Technical Education and the state government for both teaching and non-teaching staff . The court has directed the state government, AICTE to ensure all staff members of colleges run by Mahatma Gandhi Mission are paid in accordance with pay scales.
