Vice-Chancellors of Universities,

Directors of Affliated University Colleges


This Circular has been modified by Circular No : 550

I have pleasure in informing you that on recommendations made by the Hon.Minister of Justices Higher Education, the Government has agreed to the following:-

An allowance to compensate for the extra work involved in continuing to clear the back-log of students to be paid to all employees including those on contract, re-employed and temporary/casual staff. This will be 25% of the basic salary for 1992, for all grades, for the years 1992, 1993 and 1994.

Payment of arrears for the year 1992 should be calculated based on the following formula:

Total basic salary paid from January to December X 25


Monthly allowance of 25% for the years 1993 and 1994 should be calculated based on the following formula :-

Basic salary excluding the salary increase announced by the Government w.e.f. 01.01.1993

Basic salary

(a) includes earned increments as they would have been on 01.01.1993 and 01.01.1994 had the scales remained unchanged.

(b) in the case of promotions/new appointments, the salary applicable to the particular post at the date of promotion/new appointment if the old scale existed at the date of promotion/new appointment .

(c) excludes all allowances

This back-log clearing allowance should then be added to the total emoluments payable to the individuals concerned.

The allowance of 25% payable under paragraph (2) should be taken into account for the purpose of Provident Fund contributions, and payment of gratuity only, but not for other payments.

The payment of back-log clearing allowance will come into operation with effect from 1st January 1992. Arrears for the year 1992 should be paid before 15th January 1993.

The Higher Educational Institutions/Institutes are advised to send a statement indicating the extra estimated cost to implement the above decision to the Financial Controller/UGC to enable the Commission to make a request to the Treasury for extra funds.
