NEW DELHI: On a day when HRD ministry decided to notify seventh pay commission for university teachers, highly placed sources said University Grants Commission is also likely to further amend regulations regarding Academic Performance Indicators (API) accepting major demands of university teachers.  rces said, “This is likely to put an end to agitation by teachers.”  Though the formal announcement about amendments on API will take a few more days, sources said, after “internal review and external consultations it has been decided to further amend the regulations”.  One, there will be no change in workload. This means assistant professor will have to teach 16 hours per week, associate professors and professors will have to log in 14 hours of teaching. Direct teaching hours will include tutorials, hours spent on practicals/project supervision. All this will be counted at par with the lectures. API scoring on direct teaching can be achieved by teachers through lectures, practicals, tutorials and project supervision.

As for academic journals to be listed by UGC, the likely revision will be that universities can also recommend other journals not in the list. Standing committee of UGC will take a time bound decision on including these journals in the list.  Most importantly, capping of API scores will be removed. API scores will not be the benchmark for promotions. It is likely that promotions will be based on the existing system prevalent in universities.  As for the seventh pay commission, it will also look into examination of service conditions, objective methods of annual evaluation, career progression and other issues. –  Courtesy
