Chadha Commitee Report

The Chadha Commitee Report which was commissioned by the University Grants Commission, government of India, has submitted its report for the pay revision of university and college teachers in India under the Sixth Pay Commission. But there have been a number of protests regarding the report because it falls short of the expectations of the teaching community. On one hand, the Indian government has formed a National Knowledge Commission and there is talk of remunerating teachers in a manner which will attract the best talent. While on the other hand, when the pay revision report is submitted, it falls grossly short of the teachers should have got.

Isn't it ironical?
