HYDERABAD: Extending his support to the cause of Osmania University assistant contractual professors, who are on the third day of their strike, TJAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram urged government and the varsity administration to accept their demands for regularisation of jobs.


Stating that the varsity has 441 assistant professors, who are working full-time and another 100 part-timers, all on contract basis, Kodandaram demanded time scale payment for employees. “There is a marked difference in the pay scale of regular and contractual employees. Timescale payment should be provided to all staffers, he said.  


“Unlike OU there are colleges in Siddipet and Jogipet where even principals were recruited on contract basis. The government should take cognisance of their demands and provide them job security,” he said. Earlier this week over 300 contractual assistant professors had staged a ‘maha dharna’ at the Administrative Building on the OU campus.

They have also demanded government to not issue notifications for regular teaching jobs in the universities. The government has been given a week’s time to accede to their demands. Organisations like OUCAP, UTA, TUTA are part of the protest.
