Tucked away in a news story about IISc's undergraduate program, is this item:
The academic council has also decided to go ahead with the implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations.
The pay revision notification for Indian Institute of Science, along with IITs, was issued last month by the HRD (Human Resource Development) Ministry, triggering much protests across the nation.
Under the new pay scale, the starting salary for an assistant professor on contract will be Rs 37,000, a Rs 52,000 for regular a assistant professor, and Rs 59,000 for a professor.
The other numbers look about right, but professors' salaries start at just under Rs.80,000 a month (without house rent allowance), or just under Rs. 1 million per year.
