ANSWER

MINISTER OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (SHRI M.M. PALLAM RAJU)

(a)&(b) The teaching and non-teaching staff of some of the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) had proceeded on strike with effect from 6.02.2013 for fulfillment of various demands relating to their service conditions. The studies of the students were seriously disrupted due to this strike close to the annual examinations and it was of serious concern to the Government as Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas have been set up to enable talented students from rural areas to progress at faster pace to compete with their urban counterpart on an equal footing. After detailed discussions with the representatives of various Staff Association of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, the strike was called off with effect from 15.2.2013 with an assurance to the employees for a sympathetic consideration of all the genuine demands. A list of 23 demands put forward by teaching and non-teaching staff of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas is annexed.

2. The major demand of the employees was for introduction of Pension-cum-GPF Scheme under Pension Rule 1972 for the employees recruited before 1.1.2004. For this inter-ministerial consultations have already been started and are presently at an advanced stage. Some demands related to service conditions like up-gradation of pay scales, sanction of additional posts, some allowances and other miscellaneous demands relating to day to day working conditions of the JNVs.

3. Detailed discussions have already been held by the Ministry and the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti with the representatives of the employees. Several demands require consideration by different Ministries/Department of Government of India and Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS). 15 of the 23 demands have already been settled.

(c) Does not arise.

ARVIND KUMAR SINGH

(a) whether Government has granted three advanced increments for Assistant Professors, Associate Professors and Professors in Central universities on completion of their Ph.Ds;
(b) if so, the details thereof;
(c) whether this facility is not being extended to Librarians, Physical Directors etc. posted in Central Universities like Jamia Milia Islamia and BHU;
(d) if so, the reasons therefor; and
(e) the steps Government would take to grant three increments to Librarians, Physical Directors etc.?

ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT
(DR. SHASHI THAROOR)

(a) & (b) : Yes, Sir. As per the University Grants Commission (UGC) Regulations, 2010 on the subject, those teachers who complete their Ph.D. Degree while in service are entitled to 3 non-compounded advance increments if such a Ph.D. is in the discipline of employment and has been awarded by a University complying with the process prescribed by UGC for enrolment, course work, evaluation etc.

(c) to (e) : As MHRD has been informed by UGC, the benefit of three non-compounded advance increments has been extended to the Assistant Librarian / College Librarians but not to the Assistant / College Director of Physical Education of all the Central Universities including the Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI) and the Banaras Hindu University (BHU). However, as reported by JMI, the requests for the grant of advance increments to some of the Assistant Librarians could not be acceded to as they acquired their Ph.D. degrees prior to the notification of UGC Regulations, 2010.
