The examinations duty allowance of university teachers has been increased fivefold by the government, officials said yesterday. Treasury approval has already been obtained for the change.

This increase in the allowance has been granted following a demand made by the Federation of University Teachers Associations, said a senior Treasury official.

A university teacher is paid Rs 20 for each answer script marked and Rs.200 for a three hour supervision of any exam.  Besides these, a university teacher is paid Rs.500 for a visiting lecture and Rs 1000 for the evaluation of a post graduate thesis at present.
