New Delhi, 03 April 2019 — India’s Ministry of Human Resource Development has issued a clarification on its recent orders on the revision of allowances and special allowances for Teachers, Registrars, Finance Officers, and Controllers of Examinations in Central Universities.

The order had also included revised special allowances per month for Vice Chancellors, Pro-Vice-Chancellors, and College Principals.

The Ministry has now clarified that its orders are also applicable to Deputy Registrars, Assistant Registrars, Deputy Controllers of Examinations, Assistant Controllers of Examinations, Deputy Finance Officers and Assistant Finance Officers in Central Universities and Centrally funded Deemed to be Universities.

The order benefits 30,000 teaching and equivalent staff in the Central Universities and 5,500 officials in Deemed to be Universities.

The order is also a benchmark for 7,00,000 teachers and staff in the State Universities of the country.

Any corresponding increase in the allowances in a State University, however, is possible only if the State Government overseeing that university has sufficient funds at its disposal.

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has, meanwhile, published the lists of Central Universities, State Universities, Deemed Universities, and Private Universities in India.

The University of Delhi, University of Allahabad, Aligarh Muslim University, and Banaras Hindu University, for example, are Central Universities. While Kurukshetra University, Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar, Punjabi University Patiala, and Himachal Pradesh University Shimla, for instance, are State Universities.

Fast-rising universities, such as Amity University, Chandigarh University, Chitkara University, and Lovely Professional University, are Private Universities.

Panjab University, who claims to be a daughter of Pakistan’s Punjab University, is a mediocre institution located in Chandigarh. It is neither a Central, nor a State, nor a Deemed, nor a Private University; instead, it holds an erratic, fragile legal status of an “Interstate Body Corporate.” It survives on an Annual Grant from the Central Government while the revision of the pay scales of its teachers and the staff (including the Vice-Chancellor and the Registrar) is in the hands of the Finance Department of the Punjab Government, which, Panjab University ought to remember, is not a charity.
