Federation of Government College Teachers’ Association, Manipur (FEGOCTA) on Monday served an ultimatum to the Manipur government to adopt 7th Pay and UGC Regulations 2018 within September 23.
If the state government failed to address their demand, teachers of colleges and universities under FEGOCTA will launch various forms of protest from the next day (September 24), FEGOCTA general secretary Dr N Somorendro Singh said.
The ultimatum was served on Monday, he said and informed that the copies of the ultimatum addressed to the chief minister have also been submitted to state education minister, state chief secretary, principal secretary (finance), commissioner and director of state education (higher and university) department.
If no positive response comes up from the government side within the set deadline, teachers of universities and colleges under FEGOCTA will launch various forms of protests including mass casual leave, cease work strike and others, he said.
FEGOCTA has been pressing implementation of 7th Pay and UGC Regulations 2018 to the teachers of colleges and universities under the state education (higher and university) education department.
FEGOCTA had submitted memorandum containing their demands to the state government three times and the ultimatum submitted today was the fourth time, the general secretary said. 
The general secretary said that the federation has been pressing the state government for the adoption of the pay structures recommended by 7th Pay Commission since November, 2017. 
While the government was yet to be implement the demand, latest UGC Regulations 2018 having 7th pay and qualifications for recruitment and promotion of the teachers in universities and colleges were issued on July 18, 2018.
Manipur government had also ordered implementation of pay structures recommended by the 7th Central Commission to its employees with effect from April 2020. 
However, teachers of colleges and universities under the state government were left out, he alleged.
The general secretary said that teachers of the universities and colleges were not interested in launching strike but warned that it would be compelled to go ahead with strikes if the government failed to meet their demands.
