PCCTU meets CM over amendment of Security of Service Act versus Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) Chandigarh

A deputation of Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) met Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal at Chandigarh on January 8. The delegation handed over a memorandum to him, urging him not to notify the amended Security of Service Act.

Kuldeep Singh, general secretary of PCCTU, said that the CM gave a patient hearing to the delegation. Kuldeep Singh added that the CM formed a three-member committee comprising the Education Minister, Chief Secretary and Education Secretary, to resolve the grievances of college teachers relating to Security of Service Act.

Kuldeep Singh said that on December 24, Punjab Legislative Assembly had amended the Security of Service Act 1974, and snatched the security of service of thousands college teachers working against unaided posts.

The PCCTU delegation highlighted that the teachers and other employees had been enjoying security of service since 1974, and was no grant-in-aid scheme for the colleges existed at that time. The grant-in-aid scheme was introduced in 1978. The original act made no distinction between employees working on aided or unaided posts. To register its protest against the amendment in the Act, the executive committee of PCCTU has already decided to hold protest rallies at district headquarters, and burn the copies of amendment on January 15.

PCCTU has also welcomed the judgement of the High Court, which directed the Chief Secretary to evolve a mechanism to ensure that employees get prompt payment of retiral benefits like gratuity and leave encashment. To implement the decision of the High Court, DPI Colleges (Punjab) directed the college principals to submit affidavits in this regard.

PCCTU has condemned the ‘dictatorial and inhuman behaviour’ towards college teachers, especially towards women teachers, by the managing committee of Malwa College, Bondli, Samrala. PCCTU members said that the two teachers of the college were suspended twice on flimsy grounds.

The union has decided to resume its deferred ‘court-arrest agitation’ from February 5 after a span of four months, since there was no substantial development on the already-accepted demands.

Govt-aided college teachers to observe two-day strike: PCCTU

Chandigarh: Teachers of government-aided colleges of Chandigarh on Tuesday announced to go on a two-day strike from Wednesday.Chairman of Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) Prof Ghanshyam Dev said that the union has its demands several times and has been struggling for it. The state govt has never taken our demands seriously, he said.
On Tuesday also, the aided college teachers halted college activities, both teaching and administrative, for two hours.In 1999, the govt had enacted Pension Funding Act, which it had promised to enforce soon. In 2001, it denied to give the pension amount demanded by the PCCTU, said Prof Iqbal of DAV College in Sec 10 here. The teachers also demand increase in the retirement age.The govt had assured in its election manifesto to accept our demands, said Prof Amitabh Dwiwedi, secretary of PCCTU .

Aided college teachers go on strike, students suffer

Chandigarh: Hundreds of students had a tough time on Tuesday as teachers of aided colleges across Chandigarh went on a three-day strike to protest the government s failure to implement their demands, especially a pension and gratuity scheme. The protest led to cancellation of December in-house examinations, which hundreds of students were to take.The strike call has been given by the Joint Action Committee of the Non-Government Colleges Management Federation, the Federation of Associations of College Principals, the Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) and the Federation of Non-Teaching Employees of Punjab.PCCTU member Jagwant Singh said the strike was successful and there could be talks with a government delegation on Wednesday.

The demands also include lifting of ban on recruitment, implementation of revised pay-scales on the basis of parity with those working in government colleges, he said. The PCCTU has been observing a two-hour strike in all colleges since early November to press its demands.

Dont turn a simple academic demand into battlefield of politics

Chandigarh, April 16 On the 10th day of the relay fast by students, teachers and technical staff of Panjab University, an rally was organised on Wednesday to register public protest against the delay in declaring it a central yuniversity.
Addressing the rally, Professor Manjit Singh, coordinator, Joint Action Committee (JAC), said that the demand for central university status for Panjab University is to save it from the current financial crunch.

JAC chairman Professor A S Ahluwalia, recounting various phases through which the agitation has passed, said that if peaceful protests go unheard, protesters would be compelled to adopt aggressive forms. Lashing out at the indifferent attitude of the Punjab Government, Prof Ahluwalia said a simple academic demand should not be turned into a battlefield of politics.

While extending their support to the agitation, Professor Rakesh Mehta, President, Chandigarh District Council of Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) and Professor Anil Sarwal, vice-president, PCCTU, highlighted the significance of making PU a central university.

G K Chathrath and Principal Tarsem Bahia, PU alumni, ridiculed the obduracy of the Punjab Government.
Principal P S Sangha highlighted the urgency to declare PU a central university and equally accused both the state and the central government of playing politics. Parminder Jaswal, co-chairman, JAC, and Preet, president, PU Lab Technical Staff Association, also addressed the rally.

An emergency meeting of the JAC has been called on Thursday to chalk out the future course of action. Those who sat on the relay fast on Wednesday were: Kamaljit Singh and M C Sidhu, Department of Botany, D B Rishi, Department of Math, Ashwani Kaul, Department of Biophysics and G R Chaudhary from Department of Chemistry.
Udhay Bhan and Bhupinder Singh were the students of the Department of Botany and Math, respectively.


Panel tries to broker truce between PCCTU factions

Aimed at ending the deadlock between the two groups in Punjab and Chandigarh Colleges Teachers Union, the newly formed seven-member committee of PCCTU held its first meeting at Gujranwala Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Civil Lines today.
The committee said that the union would once again stand united and expressed confidence that after hearing out the two factions, all the differences would be resolved amicably. The committee also decided to hold elections on May 30 instead of May 31 in view of examination to be held on the day at Guru Nanak Dev University.

In a day-long meeting that lasted for over five hours, the committee listened to the both the groups and their complaints. We heard the two groups and also took notice of the nature of the complaints that they had against each other. We found there are no serious contentious issues but only a lack of communication between the two sides. The differences, mainly pertaining to financial nature or voting rights to be given to the new colleges, including B.Ed college, will be sorted out amicably, said Sukhbir Singh Chatha, a committee member.

Both the Hundal group as well as Jagwant Brar group said that they had full faith in the members of the committee and would agree to all the decisions taken by the committee.


Higher Education dept issues guidelines for new academic session

Bhopal: In a setback to the college authorities, no new colleges could be set up within 1 km radius of an existing educational institution. And for rural areas, the distance between the two colleges should be no less than 3 kms.

The notification is the part of the new guidelines by the Higher Education department for the academic session 2012-13. The directions for the same have been issued to the respecting college managements.

It is for the first time when the directions in connection with the new academic session have been issued so much in advance.

As per the new directions, it will be mandatory to have a well-constructed building on an area of 5,000 sq feet with the college management, only after which the college management will be allowed to run two courses.

In order to run the other courses, a separate academic building will be required on an area of 2,000 sq ft.

Also, approval will not be given to any new college, falling within radius of 1 km of the proposed college in urban area for running a similar course. The radius will increase to 3km in case of the new college in rural area.

The proposed colleges are required to attach a copy of property papers attested by SDM. The Higher Education department has also raised the fees of first application to Rs 1 lakh from Rs 25,000.

Applications for opening new colleges in the state can be sent to the Higher Education Commissioner latest by November 30. While the late applications can be submitted till December 31 with a fine of Rs 10,000. The decision for granting the approval is likely to be taken by the department by February 28.

Punjab teachers union condemns Khalsa university move

Chandigarh: The Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) here Monday condemned the Khalsa College Education Society s proposal to set up a private university in place of the 120-year-old Khalsa College in Amritsar.

PCCTU members said replacing the college with a private university is an attempt to tamper with history and heritage of this institution of Punjab that is located in a heritage building.

This college is the pride of the Punjabis and the Sikhs. The proposal betrays the wishes, thinking and expectations of all those who were involved in the movement of setting up of the college in 19th century and who donated liberally for its setting up, Jagwant Singh, PCCTU president, told reporters here on Monday.

He added that the move has been made in a clandestine manner and lacks transparency .

Singh said, The managing committee has its ulterior motives behind this move. They have not shared anything with the stakeholders, teachers, alumni and families of the donors. They have done everything in a secret and deceitful manner.

Singh accused principal Diljit Singh, president Satyajit Singh Majithia and secretary R.M. Singh Chinna of acting in a fraudulent and dictatorial manner and demanded their immediate resignation on moral grounds.

Their only motive is to grab the 200 acres of land of the college by any means. One of the clauses of Khalsa Private University Bill gives the proposed university power to purchase, acquire, take on lease, mortgage, sell, alienate and transfer any movable property belonging to the university, charged Singh.

Punjab college staff goes without salary for months

Teaching and non-teaching staff in colleges across Punjab have gone without salary for the past few months, a senior teachers leader said .

A total of 1,036 aided colleges of Punjab have not received any salary grant from the state government for the last 10 months. The last grant released was for the quarter ending Aug 31, 2011, Punjab and Chandigarh College Teachers Union (PCCTU) general secretary Jagwant Singh told here.

He said that the salary grant that the Punjab government owed to colleges was nearly Rs.125 crore now. The colleges are affiliated to three universities -- Punjab University at Chandigarh, Guru Nanak Dev University at Amritsar and Punjabi University at Patiala.

Nearly 4,500 teaching and non-teaching staff in colleges have been affected by this. The number of teachers who have not been paid salaries is around 2,200, Singh said.

He said that out of the 136 affected colleges, about 35 colleges have paid the teaching faculty and non-teaching staff from their own resources. In over 90 colleges, the teaching and non-teaching staff, including class IV employees, have gone without salary.

In different colleges, the backlog of salaries ranges from four to 10 months. Without the state grants, most colleges are unable to pay salaries. Only the big colleges have paid from their own resources, he said.

Despite the fact that the adequate budget existed, no grant was released to the colleges by the end of the financial year (2011-12). Even in the current financial year, no salary has been released by the Punjab treasury despite the persistent efforts by principal secretary (higher education), Singh claimed.

The PCCTU leader said that the teaching community had earlier planned to go on strike during the on-going annual examinations in colleges but did not do so as the higher education officials were trying to get the grants released.

Perhaps, the department of finance is waiting for some tragedy to happen. Human rights of employees are being violated by the government which is pushing employees to take drastic measures, he said.
