The Christmas and new year feast
December 23, 2017

It is time to think of a fellowship of the kurta members over lunch in connection with Xmas and new year lunch. Ideally during the festive week our esteemed members would want to stay undisturbed with family …so shall we elect the Sunday in the second week in Jan or the second Saturday in jan. 18. Send your feed back please.

On behalf of kurta another wonderful Xmas and new year to you all..

Clarifications on the pay revision announced by the goi.
October 16, 2017

Truly, it was a policy decision and the details will come through the ugh to all states and universities in the country. Several of my kurta friends were wondering if the pensioners will get any benefit of this revision. The answer is a big yes. The catch is that the maximum pensionwill have a ceiling at Rs.60,000- or will not go beyond the pension of retired additional secretary of the state.
Secondly, the state will have to bear theadded expenses on account of the hike in pension.
Thirdly the state gov will announce that funds will be earmarked in 18-19 budget for the enhanced pay as well as pension of the univ teachers.
I presume that there will at least a hike of about Rs 10000- pm for the guys who retired as professors.. so let us all look forward to the govt to announce the decision..

Now rejoice the revision of pay for univ and college teachers.

In Kerala we have a catch about max pension which is pegged to that of a secretariat clerk on reaching status of additional secretary, and currently it is Rs.60,000- but the min pay of univ prof is 141000 and we are eligible for 50% or 70500 as basic pension. We need to work hard to get this anomaly removed..I hope that the equating professors and clerk reaching addl secretary is anything but absurd. The govt will now at least get out of the clerk advice and clerk glorification . These clerks live in the present. But we are more in the future and near future.
Ok like I posted it is a Diwali gift from the goi…
