Pension teacher

Demanding the withdrawal of the “Prottoy” universal pension scheme, teachers at public universities across the country, including Dhaka University, have suspended all academic and administrative activities indefinitely starting today (1 July).

No classes or exams have taken place on campus since this morning.

“The protest against the new pension scheme has commenced with the suspension of academic activities. It will persist until the government withdraws the scheme,” stated Dr. Akhtarul Islam, president of the Bangladesh University Teachers Samity Federation.

However, a visit to the geography department of Dhaka University revealed that administrative activities not involving teachers remained operational.

“The administrative offices are open, but all classrooms are locked,” said Fariha, a geography department student.

Nizam Haq Bhuiyan, general secretary of the Dhaka University Teachers’ Association (DUTA), announced a two-day protest with teachers’ demands.

“Our program will begin at 12pm in front of the Faculty of Arts today and continue until 1pm,” he said.

Today also marks the 104th founding anniversary of Dhaka University. Students were seen attending the program at TSC despite light rain.

On 13 March, the government introduced the Prottoy scheme for employees joining public universities and other organisations under the scheme from 1 July 2024 onwards.

However, those who joined these institutions before 1 July 2024 will continue to receive their previous pension benefits.

In addition to public universities, employees in autonomous, state-owned, and other statutory organisations, along with their subordinates, will also be included in the pension scheme, set to be implemented from Monday.

Public university teachers have been protesting their inclusion in the Prottoy scheme since its announcement and have vowed to continue their protest until it is withdrawn.

Meanwhile, the National Pension Authority has stated that they are ready to implement the scheme from Monday as per the government’s decision.
