The Himachal Pradesh Government College Teachers Association observed a fast in all 132 government degree colleges today in support of their demand for the grant of new UGC scales as per the Seventh Pay Commission recommendations.

Ram Lal Sharma, general secretary of the association, said that teachers had submitted several demand charters and resolutions to the government in the past six months but its indifferent attitude had compelled them to go for a fast.

The teachers would start a symbolic dharna for one hour in their colleges from tomorrow. However, they would continue to perform examination duties, he added.
