New Delhi: The government Tuesday approved revised
pay scales for faculty of autonomous medical institutions like
the AIIMS and PGIMER, Chandigarh, bringing them at par with
their counterparts in IITs and IIMs.
The faculty at these institutes had refused to accept the
revised emoluments as per the Sixth Pay Commission
recommendations, demanding a pay hike at par with those in the
IIMs and IITs.
The decision to give term parity to the faculty of
autonomous medical colleges with their counterparts in IITs
and IIMs was approved by the Union Cabinet at its meeting held
today, Health Ministry sources said.
While the revised pay would be applicable from January
2006, allowances would be given with effect from August 2008.
