After Oders From Central Government, UGC Directs Universities To Postpone Faculty Hiring

New Delhi: On Thursday, UGC asked the universities to postpone their teacher recruitment mode till Supreme Court issues further order in the matter of faculty-recruitment mode. The order comes after the Central government wrote to the Council on Wednesday directing them to convey the order to universities.
The letter by the government addressed to the UGC Secretary read, "As you are aware, the SLPs have been filed by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and the UGC in the case ... in Supreme Court and same are slated for hearing tentatively on August 13, 2018. Hence, it would be appropriate if UGC issues a direction to all the institutions to postpone the recruitment process, if it is already underway, till further orders."

Supreme Court held the verdict passedc by Allahabad High Court in March this year, which stipulated the institutions to consider department as a unit while hiring the faculty members, instead of university as a unit. 

Faction of teachers are feeling discontent with the decision, which has resulted in the filing of SLPs by the government, who argued that department-wise recruitment will lead to undermining of chances of backward classes to get hired under reservation scheme.

Earlier, the matter was due to be heard on July 20 but was postponed to August 13 without hearing.
