GCU revises academics' salary package

LAHORE, Oct 21: The Government College University (GCU) Lahore vice chancellor (VC) has announced the revised salary package for the faculty on the Tenure Track System.

According to a press release issued by GCU on Saturday, now an assistant professor will receive Rs 80,000, associate professor Rs 120,000 and professor Rs 180,000 a month. The new package will be applicable from September 2007.

The VC said the academics were paid off well and that in response high salary package should meet the university's high expectations. He urged the teachers to substantially contribute to develop a research culture and donate to the university's Endowment Fund.

GCU Chemistry Department chairman Prof Dr M Akram Kashmiri said the tenure track system was introduced to the university in 2004. He said that previously an assistant professor was paid Rs 25,000 to Rs 50,000, an associate professor Rs 72,000 and a professor Rs 134,000 a month.

Tenure Track System: The Higher Education Commission introduced the Tenure Track System according to which an academic does not hold a permanent position but earns it on the basis of research and teaching. The system is in sharp contrast to the present situation in public universities where academics hold position on permanent basis. The tenure track system is prevalent in the US and Western Europe. Under the system, a teacher is appointed for three years on contract. Daily Times
