The University Grants Commission, New Delhi, vide its letter dated 7.12.2018 has informed that the Commission at its meeting held on 14h November 2018 has approved that the non-compounded advance increments to such Ph.D. degree holders shall be admissible along with benefit of number of years required for promotion subject to certain conditions. This has been a long pending demand of PUTA and career of more than hundred teachers had been hanging in fire due to this.
It was on the initiative of Vice Chancellor and PUTA that a representation dated 17.09.2018 was submitted in person to Secretary, UGC, by FDO and PUTA representatives at New Delhi.
PUTA Executive in its meeting today puts on record its profuse gratitude to the University Grants Commission, Prof. Raj Kumar, Vice Chancellor, Panjab University and Prof. A.K.Bhandari.
Deep appreciation is also extended to Prof. Rajesh Gill, President, PUTA, for her persistent efforts. This will bring great respite to a large number of teachers in the University as well as the Colleges.
