NEW DELHI: The faculty members of central technical institutions like IITs and IIMs can hope for a better pay package soon with the government setting up a committee for review of their salary and emoluments.

The committee is headed by former director of Indian Institute of Sciences, Bangalore, Prof Govardhan Mehta.

"The committee will make a comprehensive study of the 6th Pay Commission recommendations. It will speak to the faculty members of the IITs, IIMs, IIITs and NITs and consider their views and recommend an ideal pay package for the faculty members in these institutions," a senior official in HRD Ministry said.

The committee has been given three months time to complete the report, so that the government could implement it before the general elections.

The committee will look into the recommendations of Prof G K Chadha committee, which has been set up to recommend pay structure of university teachers. The Chadha committee is expected to submit its report to the University Grants Commission next week.

"The committee will have to address the major issue of retention of teachers and attracting more scholars to join teaching and research at these premier institutes," the official said.

The committee is set up at a time when the government has decided to expand the technical educational institutions in a big way. The government has decided to set up eight IITs, seven IIMs, 20 IIITs and six NITs across the country. Some of these institutions have already started functioning from this year.
