There is a piece of good news for 35,000 Gujarat University (GU) employees involved in examination and paper assessment duty. Considering inflation and result price hike of almost all essential commodities, the GU has decided to hike the remuneration given to employees who take pat in different stages of exam duty. Officials said that the teachers involved in paper assessment will get more money per paper. Remuneration for teachers assessing papers of first year will now get Rs 7 instead of Rs 5. The second year teachers will get Rs 7.50 instead of Rs 5.50 while the teachers assessing papers of third year will get Rupee 8 per paper instead of Rs 6. GU vice chancellor Parimal Trivedi said that 35,000 employees will stand to benefit from this decision.
The GU had formed a committee to look into the wages being given to the GU employees involved in exam diuty and suggest the kind of increase that can be implemented. Officials said that the hike will attract more teachers to report for paper assessment duty. Coupled with the fact that teachers are now allowed to assess papers at home, the fact that they will be able to earn Rs 10,000 to Rs 12,000 will be an added attraction. This will also help the cause of students as more teachers assessing the papers will mean better, error free checking. Teachers involved in paper setting will also be getting more.Remuneration given to a teacher setting paper for two hours has been increased from Rs 300 to Rs 350 while the teachers involved in setting paper of three hours will get Rs 350 instead of Rs 200 earned earlier. Teachers setting paper of post-graduate courses will earn Rs 450 for each paper set instead of the earlier payment of Rs 200. GU officials said that the income of the university from examinations was Rs 5 crore which has gone up to Rs 30 crore in 2012. The GU will bear an additional burden of Rs 2.5 crore to absorb the hike. Dean of commerce faculty ND Shah said the new pay packages for exam duty will result in more teachers attracted towards exam duty. Graduate teachers who were involved in exam duty used to get Rs 70 per day, they will also benefit.
