Federation of University Teachers Association (FUTA) today said that the academics’ salary figures publicized by the University Grants Commission (UGC) are manipulated to benefit the claims of FUTA demands to be unfair.

FUTA President Dr. Ranjith Nirmal Dewasiri told Daily Mirror Online that the figures which the UGC have released contain figures higher than what the academics actually get paid. “For example, the figure of a senior professor’s salary according to the UGC is about Rs. 30,000 higher than what is actually paid. The numbers they have released are nothing but a statistical gimmick to benefit their statements,” he said. 

Speaking further Dr. Dewasiri stated that they have expressed their willingness to engage in a negotiated settlement with concerns to providing solutions to their demands and are awaiting an appointment for discussions with President Mahinda Rajapaksa. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    Government figures are always in favor of the government. The only time the figures are unfavorable towards the government and the country as a whole is when it comes to giving the ministers there so called salary and other benefits.

    the salary which is expecting by the university academic
    staff is almost 220000 srilankan rupees..i think academic staffs are comparing their salary with other professionals who were studied with them and now being
    in the industry.if they want a good salary why they r teaching now,go and do the job in industry.because they want money.
