The revised per month salary according to the 7th pay commission can be up to Rs. 67,000 based on your area of expertise and employer. 

The best part about a career as a lecturer is the number of vacation days and the work-life balance you get. 

If you become a professor in a Govt. college then job security is also an added advantage.
