College teachers to await next Cabinet meet for pay revision

MANGALORE: The State Government will take a decision on implementing the revised University Grants Commission pay scale to degree college teachers and university teachers in the State in the next Cabinet meeting, according to Higher Education Minister Aravind Limbavali.

In an informal chat with presspersons at Mangalagangotri, Mangalore University, he said that certain specific issues related to granting of revised pay scales to teachers would have to be sorted out at the Cabinet meeting.

The Minister was in the university to lay the foundation stone for constructing a building complex to accommodate all the study centres of the university campus under one roof. At present, all centres are in different buildings in the campus.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion, the Minister said that the Government would conduct the CET counselling in Mangalore, Davangere and Shimoga from next year. The Government's intention was to ensure that students should be able to return to their homes on the same evening after attending the counselling. Attending counselling at local centres would reduce costs of cummuting.

Mr. Limbavali expressed concern over the declining interest among students for research and to study the Basic Sciences.

He advised women not to discontinue higher studies after marriage. K. Chinnappa Gowda, Registrar (administration), said that the new complex would be constructed at an estimated cost of Rs. 6.5 crore and would be completed in 20 months. There would be three floors with 3,154 sq. ft. floor area. The building can accommodate 12 study centres, four on in each floor, he said. Each centre would have an archive room to store research works, an office room, seminar halls and other facilities.

Vice-Chancellor K.M. Kaveriappa said that the university now had nine study centres. Three more would be set up soon.
