Teachers of non-government aided colleges affiliated to Punjabi University organised a protest rally against the government for non-implementation of their demands in front of the District Courts Complex on Friday.

The Punjab and Chandigarh Colleges Teacher's Union had given the call for the protest.

Punjabi University secretary Balvir Singh, said that in 1999, the Punjab government had approved a pension scheme for teachers working in non-government aided colleges of Punjab. The Punjab Vidhan Sabha had also approved the scheme. However, the scheme has not been implemented over the past 13 years.

Co-president of the union PS Gill has also appealed to the Punjab government to disburse arrears of the revised pay scales as 80% amount of the arrears is to be given by the central government through the University Grants Commission.

He also appealed to the vice-chancellor of the Punjabi University to release the letter mandating 10% deduction of the GPF on total emoluments of the teachers of affiliated colleges as has been done in Panjab University and GNDU affiliated colleges. As of now, the GPF is deducted at 10% of the basic pay only.
