“However, if a faculty member does earn enough to be taxed, we will deduct appropriately,” the source said.
A circular dated November 26 said, “As per the procedure in force, 10 per cent of the remuneration as income-tax will be deducted from faculty members and remitted.”The communication concerns about 15,000 exam evaluators across the State.
This was received bitterly by private college faculty members.
“Most private college faculty members do not earn enough income to fall under the tax slab.
It is not fair for colleges to deduct income-tax from us,” said KM Karthik, president of All India Private Engineering College Employees Union (AIPCEU).
