The state cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to implement recommendations of the seventh pay commission for teachers and equivalent cadres in the state universities, deemed universities and degree colleges of Uttar Pradesh.

Chief minister Yogi Adityanath presided over the meeting of the state cabinet that decided to grant the revised pay scales that will cost Rs 921.54 crore per annum. The state government and the Centre will share 50% of the cost each in the first year. The state government will have to bear the total burden thereafter.

The decision will benefit 18 universities. These include 15 state universities, a law university, a deemed university and an open university.

Minister for medical and health Sidharth Nath Singh, who along with minister for energy Shrikant Sharma briefed reporters about the state cabinet’s decisions, said the state government had decided to grant the revised pay scales to university and school teachers along with equivalent cadres with effect from January 1, 2016.

He said this scheme would not be applicable to the registrar, finance officer, examination controller, pro vice chancellor and vice chancellor.

He said this scheme would also not affect accompanists, coach, tutors and demonstrators. The revised pay scales will also be given to principals of graduate and post graduate colleges. They will, however, not be paid any special allowances.
