Lecturers and teaching staff in colleges getting paid as per UGC scales across Karnataka have something to cheer about. The Karnataka High Court quashed various orders restricting their superannuation in the range of 60-62 years and directed authorities to make it 65 years.
"The denial by the state government of the enhancement of age of superannuation to teachers working in the government and aided, affiliated colleges drawing UGC scale of pay is repugnant to the UGC Act and the Regulations and hence is void," the court observed.
Petitioners will be continued in service in the posts they held on the date of petitions or immediately prior to it till they attain the age of superannuation of 65 years in accordance with UGC regulations with all benefits, Justice Anand Byrareddy observed in his verdict, allowing petitions led by H Halesh, M Albina and others.
