Let’s talk about something that needs our attention. The dedicated contractual Assistant Professors at Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri, have been quietly shouldering their responsibilities, yet their voices have been left unheard in the clamor of academia. 

Imagine pouring your heart and soul into educating the future generations, only to find yourself struggling to make ends meet. That’s the reality for these educators, who, despite their qualifications and dedication, are faced with the harsh truth of inadequate compensation. 

While their counterparts in other universities across Jammu and Kashmir have seen their salaries rise, these professors are stuck at a mere 30,000 rupees per month. Let that sink in for a moment. In a world where the cost of living continues to soar, this amount barely scratches the surface of meeting their daily needs. 

Take, for instance, the stark contrast in salaries. While some universities like Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Univerisity Katra offer as much as Rs. 70,000 per month and Islamic University of Science and Technology offers respectable Rs. 50,000. It begs the question: Why the glaring discrepancy? Why are these educators being left behind? 

It’s not just about the numbers; it’s about respect. These individuals have dedicated their lives to shaping minds and nurturing intellects, yet they find themselves undervalued and overlooked. It’s disheartening to see such talent and dedication go unrecognized. 

So, here’s an appeal to those in positions of power: Listen to their plight. Acknowledge their contributions. And above all, address their legitimate demands for fair compensation. It’s time to right this wrong and ensure that every educator, regardless of their contractual status, is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. 

To the contractual Assistant Professors of Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri, know that your voices have been heard. Let’s stand together and fight for a future where fairness prevails and every educator is valued for their invaluable contribution to society.
