HYDERABAD: Unhappy with the university administration for not implementing the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) for teachers appointed under the scheme, members of the Osmania University Teachers Association (OUTA) will go on an indefinite strike from Wednesday

Though CPS came into effect in September 2004 and is binding on all employees recruited after that, the scheme has been a non-starter for OU teachers.The university is following the LIC-linked pension scheme that was introduced in April 2001.

OUTA alleges that it is without approval of the government which has been pending since 2015. "The indifferent attitude of the state government and university authorities have forced us to go on agitation path. As part of the agitation, OUTA has decided to abstain from duties, including examination-related work, from April 18," said Battu Satyanarayana, president, OUTA.
