While the government has chose to hike the basic minimum pay beyond the 7th Pay Commission, there is not much clarity on the arrears.

Extending benefits of the 7th Pay Commission, the Cabinet on Wednesday revised pay scales of around 8 lakh teachers in central and state universities. He said that the decision will come in to effect from January 1 2016.

Assistant and Associate Professors of as many as 329 state universities along with 12,912 colleges will get the benefits along with the teachers of government-aided colleges.

Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu state Cabinet consented to implement recommendations under the 7th Pay Commission for around 10 lakh of its state government personnel and teachers today.

This pay hike as per the pay panel recommnedations is set to benefit 7.58 lakh teachers and equivalent academic staff in the 106 universities or colleges which are funded either by the UGC or the Ministry of Human Resource Development. The revised pay scale would cost about Rs 9,800 crore to the exchequer.

The company said it plans to go "deeper" into the Indian market-beyond the 110 cities of varying sizes where it operates now. The money raised in this new funding round will give Ola a post-money valuation of over $4 billion.

Javadekar said the pay hike cleared by the cabinet was in the range of 22 to 28 per cent, depending on the seniority of the faculty members.

"In addition, the revised pay package will cover teachers of 119 centrally funded technical institutions - IITs, IISc, IIMs, IISERs, IIITs and NITIE", a statement said after the meeting.

"It has been done to give justice to the serving teachers as well as to to attract and retain talent in academics so that the standard and quality of higher education is improved", he said.

For the state government funded institutions, the revised pay scales will require adoption by the respective states. As per the reports, the government is seeking to raise minimum pay of the central government employees beyond the recommendation of the 7th pay commission of 7th CPC.
