Correct Answer: A [Secretary of the department of Higher Education (HE)]
Notes: The Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has formed a committee to review the recommendations made by University Grants Commission (UGC) panel on implementation of the 7th pay commission in educational institutions. The committee will be headed Kewal Kumar Sharma, the secretary of the department of Higher Education (HE). The development comes against the backdrop of teachers’ associations of various universities threatening to go on strike on April 19, 2017 over the delay in implementation after the UGC panel submitted its report. The pay review committee of the UGC, which was formed in 2016 and was headed by it member VS Chauhan, had recommended to scrap ad-hoc and temporary appointments of teachers across universities.
