Govt. urged to implement salary grants


The managements of 19 unaided private law colleges have urged the government to expedite implementation of salary grants. S.H. Patel, honorary president of the association, told presspersons here on Friday that when private degree colleges were brought under grant-in-aid code in 1979, law colleges run by private managements were left out.

“In 2012, with the approval of the Cabinet, 19 private law colleges were considered for grants. However, the benefits have not reached us,” he said. Mr. Patel said there was wage disparity among teachers of government/aided law college and unaided colleges. “While teachers in government and aided colleges get UGC scale, teachers in unaided colleges are paid salary depending on managements’ financial condition .” He urged the government to extend “one-time exemption” in implementing the reservation policy in recruitment.
