The Association of Mangalore University College Teachers (AMUCT) at its general body meeting here on Sunday resolved to request the government to fix the minimum salary to management paid teachers on a par with teachers drawing the State pay scale.

It urged the government to recruit teaching and non-teaching staff on a regular basis by filling vacancies immediately. It will request the government to consider in-service teachers, working in vacant posts in aided colleges, while making regular appointments. The association urged the government to give age relaxation and weightage to these teachers while making regular appointments to vacant posts.

The teachers resolved to protest over the inordinate delay in release of salary to government aided college employees. They urged the Department of Collegiate Education to release salaries to aided college employees at least before the fifth of every month.

They resolved to request authorities to consider eligible UG teachers to administrative posts of the university, such as Registrar Evaluation, Director of College Development Committee, Special Officer, etc.

They decided to urge the government to fix the maximum intake of students in a class to 60 and grant batches and courses only after ensuring fulfilment of minimum requirements with regard to infrastructure and teaching facilities and faculty members.

It was decided to urge Mangalore University to extend guideship to eligible teachers of affiliated colleges and also to request the university to follow a uniform policy while granting Ph.D. guideship by all Boards of Studies.

Other decisions included the need to appoint regular principals to aided colleges as per the UGC norms, the need to set right the anomalies in the 6th UGC pay scales implemented from 2006.

The meeting also resolved to urge the government to clarify the issue regarding the reduction of casual leave from 15 to 10 for State government employees.
