Chandigarh: In a Teacher’s Day gift to college teaching faculty, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Monday announced to implement University Grant Commission’s (UGC) pay scale as per seventh pay commission to the teachers of colleges and universities.

The Chief Minister said this was a long pending demand of the teachers, who had been eagerly waiting for this decision adding that this will come into force from October 1.

Striking an emotional chord with teachers, Mann said being the son of a teacher he is well aware of the problems faced by them.
