Indore: Demanding pay revision and cadre on par with state government employees, hundreds of regular employees of Devi Ahilya University went on indefinite strike in Indore on Monday, affecting administrative works and classes.

The university work is being conducted by contractual employees after around 300 class-III and IV regular employees of the varsity struck work, pressing for demands including pay revision, pension, cadre equality and abolition of deputation to certain posts, registrar R D Moosalgaonkar said.

Meanwhile, Indore's government schools too remained shut after 4000 contractual and regular teachers went on three days' strike, after a call given by the state Adhyapak Sanyukta Morcha, demanding "equal work, equal pay", the Indore Zila Sanyukta Adhyapak Morcha's convenor Bharat Bhargawa told reporters.

Classes were paralysed in over one lakh schools in Madhya Pradesh, the convenor said. Varsity employees and school teachers also held protests-cum-demonstrations outside their institutions.
