NIT (National Institues of Technology) act becomes effective Aug 15 2007.

August 14th, 2007

Update: The NIT statutes based on this act was pubslished in the Gazette in April 2009. A copy of it is at Thanks to the  reader who commented on this.


The NIT (National Institutes of Technology) act becomes effective Aug 15 2007. There is a similar act for the IITs; but the NITs did not have one earlier. By virtue of this act NITs now become "Institutes of National Importance (INI)." Thus the proposed IIESTs, which will also be accorded INI status will not necessarily have a higher status than NITs.

    Dear sir,

    Why arrears of 60% is held up. Whether is it due to pending issue like
    (a) Rationalization of Non-teaching staff salary across all NITs. (b) still lot of unsolved anamoly present in pay of non teaching. (c) Whether rationalization work is going on….

    I heard that in many NITs lot of anamoly is present in their pay fixation. When that will be resolved. The valuable 5 years have been passed unnecessarily without solving the problems of NIT non teaching staff.

    What could be the problem….. ???????? Any one can be knowing the some clue about it.

    Dear Ragu,

    The actual problem created in the pay rationalization process. MHRD send OMs for pay Rationalization to all NITs, but they Interpretted in different ways and many peoples get undue benefits, now they are fighting for protection the undue benefits. Some peoples loss as per state norms benefits and also ccs norms due to the pending Restructuring process from 1/4/2004. What we do? Respected Director Rourkela create a good platform for discussing the various problems in Staff side in variouis NITs, But peoples are sleeping.

  • 3. macp  |  November 20th, 2009 at 5:00 pm

    Dear Ragu,

    In my personal opinion that the only way to rectify the anomalys of pay fixation that to cancell the pay rationalization process in 2004 and keep up the present status to continue before 1/1/2006, after 1/1/2006 the pay fixation as per cental rules. Waiting for opinions.

    Dear MACP,

    I really t hank you for sharing your known information regarding NIT staff rationalisation.

    Really it is very unpleasent to have such a system. Since last 4-5 years the rationalisation process for 20 NITs is not possible. I really wonder the pay commissions for All India Central govt. employees will complete their work within stipulated time of 1-2 years and submit final report for implementation. Then why MHRD is not doing the same to solve 20 NITs.

    I hope the good days may come and they (MHRD) appoint an committe and which will submit and implement rationalisation report for NIT Non Teaching staff at the earliest.

    Really as you said in above communication some cadres got benefit while taking them from state to central payscales. But at the same time for some of the cadres it has injusticed.
    this is not only in one NIT it is across all the 20 NITs. Why still MHRD is keeping silent on this.

    We all pray god to MHRD will work on this…..

  • 5. 60% Arrears  |  November 23rd, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Dear Sir,
    Is there any hopes of implementation of pay structure for all NITs. “SARANGI COMMISSION REPORT’.

  • 6. Ragu  |  November 24th, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    Dear sir,

    If every nonteaching staff of NITs demand for uniform staff/pay structure there may be lot of chances that MHRD may do that. As they had only had initiated through Sarangi Committee, again they may setup such committee or they may relook of that committee report itself.

  • 7. Ragu  |  November 27th, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Dear sir,

    I learnt that in NITK karnataka 60% arrears is distributed to all non teaching staff.
    Why not in NIT warangal.

  • 8. 60% Arrears  |  November 30th, 2009 at 11:59 am

    Dear Raghu,

    In NITK karnataka 60% arrears is not distributed this for your information,

  • 9. Ragu  |  December 3rd, 2009 at 10:19 am

    Dear ALL (NIT Non-teaching) staff

    I heard that the uniform pay scales for all NITs is being ready at MHRD by little modifying the Prof. Sarangi committee report. The same may come to all NITs for implementation soon….

    Hope this is good news for all the Non-teaching staff of NITs.

  • 10. macp  |  December 3rd, 2009 at 9:00 pm

    Dear Ragu,

    What is the source of information about uniform pay scales and Sarangi commission report?

  • 11. macp  |  December 7th, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    Dear Ragu,

    No.F23-30/2008-TS-III O.M Dt.3rd October 2008 from MHRD directs it Para( iv) Any promotion either by way of ACP/Fitment benefit etc, given after 1/1/2006 which is not in accordance with Government approved policy will be deemed to have been withdrawn and will not be taken into account for fixation of pay or grant of increment subsequently. And para vi also direct that some autonomous bodies are upgraded the scales to some employees with retrospective effect…… Many NITs are ignored this OM and allow undue benefits to some category. Have you got this OM to your Institute?

  • 12. Ragu  |  December 7th, 2009 at 1:40 pm

    Dear macp,

    In our NIT some of the people from management were talking about it around few days back. Your are asking what is is the source of information, how can I tell you the source, I clearly told that I heard a news in my previous blog info (No.59).

    I think we all discuss here whatever we hear good news about NITs non teaching staff.

    Even if you hear such good news just publish on it.

    OK bye

  • 13. Ragu  |  December 8th, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    Dear MACP,

  • 14. aaaaaaaa  |  December 17th, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    hot news from calict nit
    calicut nit follows REC rules ater the conversion of NIT.

  • 15. balachandran  |  December 17th, 2009 at 8:49 pm

    Calicut NIT follows Existing REC Rules for some promotions cases only after 1/4/2004, and strictly follows FR SR for other cases like Faimly planning allowance, LTC, Medical claims for somebody etc. It nis not a HOT news, It is the fact.

  • 16. Hassan  |  December 17th, 2009 at 8:55 pm

    Calicut NIT follows existing REC rules for some promotion cases only after 1/4/2004. It is not a hot news,It is the fact.

    Dear MACP,

    Dear all.

    Yesterday I had telephoned to one of the known non-teaching person at NIT Surathkal Karnataka and found that there was roumer of Prof.Sarangi committee report again.

    There one the management person told that the Sarangi committe is under process at MHRD. so at any time it may come.

    bye have a good month and year end…


  • 20. macp  |  December 22nd, 2009 at 10:54 am

    Dear Mr. Ragu,

    My request is not an individual one pls. see my blog, the whole NITs. RECs are converted into NITs on 2002, the fully financial control was under MHRD in 1/4/2004. The earstwhile RECs are autonomous power and they are followed different rules and regulations, after 1/4/2004 it was under the fully financial control of MHRD ministry, after 2004and before …… there are many irregularities done by the service matters of Non Teaching staff side and it would occured great financial loss to the Govt. and also affected some seniors. There is no way to rectify these so I humbly requested to the Respected Ministerfor a favourable action.

  • 21. Ragu  |  December 22nd, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    Dear Mr.MACP,

    I agree your point. I know really there are affected (+vely / -vely) while rationalization of pay scales during the year 2004. But even my openion matches to yours because I also demand to rectify problems of affected staff of NIT’s. So donot mistake my opinion presented to this blog. I have respect for all the non-teaching staff of NITs. I am also one of the senior staff. So every one should be treated on par with.

    One thing is true, MHRD should interfere in this and should make uniform service rules to among all NITs.

    With Regards….

  • 22. macp  |  December 24th, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    Dear Mr.Ragu,

    I have also respected to everybody including Non Teaching and Faculty, But the problem is that the violation of Rules? I am not respected those who are violated the rules and given undue benefits to there favourites……..Govt. of India formulated Service rules to the Employees those who are working in Govt.Service/Autonomous bodys, not for a particular category/group of peoples.

    I am also given a” BIG SALUTE” TO THE RTI ACT
