Non-academic staff at universities across the country launched a token strike today, disrupting the activities of universities.

A group of 15,000 people representing all higher education institutions governed by the University Grants Commission are engaged in the strike action.

The token strike is being launched claiming that the government failed to implement the conditions reached in the agreement inked in 2016 over benefits and other allowances. 

Activities across all universities have been hampered owing to the strike action.
