University teachers across India have engaged in a series of strike actions to demand proper remuneration and promotion improvements Members of the Federation of Central Universities Teachers Association (FEDCUTA) are protesting about the slow progress of the report of the University Grants Commission which is due to make recommendations for teachers pay. The commission was set up in September 2007 and its chairman says that it wil take three more months before it can report. Union members say that the continuous loss of staff in universities is due to poor salaries and lack of a proper career structure.
