(a): Two Central Universities, namely, the Banaras Hindu University and the Aligarh Muslim University have Medical College with attached hospitals that are run in accordance with MCI guidelines.
(b): The Revised Pay Bands and Grade Pays as indicated in Part-A of the first Schedule of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, which was notified by the Ministry of Finance pursuant to the recommendations of the 6th Pay Commission, have already been implemented in respect of the non-teaching employees including the nursing staff and para-medical staff of the concerned Central Universities. However, the revised pay scales mentioned in the Part-B of the first Schedule of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 for certain common categories of staff, which includes nursing and para-medical staff, have not been implemented so far. As per the relevant instructions of the Ministry of Finance, the implementation of pay scales given in Part-B is to be made in the autonomous organisations after taking an individual view in each case to determine whether the grant of the revised pay structure is justified on functional considerations.
(c): The Committee constituted by the UGC to examine the rationalisation of the cadre structure and the pay scales of various categories of non-teaching employees, including the nursing staff and the para-medical staff, has given its report.
(d): The recommendations of the above Committee are under examination by this Ministry and an appropriate decision would be taken soon in consultation with the Ministry of Finance.
