Centralised panel for varsity recruitment

Centralised panel for varsity recruitment

Taking note of several malpractices reported during recruitment for universities, the state government is all set to form a centralised recruitment committee.

Following the formation of the committee, even autonomous universities will not have the liberty for recruitment. This committee will be the sole body to take decisions on recruitment of teaching and non-teaching staff of all the universities in the state.

Vice chancellors of all 25 universities of the state are set to have a meeting in the city on Wednesday in this regard. The Karnataka State Universities Act 2000 will be amended to change the recruitment guidelines for universities. The name of former VC of Gulbarga University V B Coutinho, is being recommen­ded to head the committee.
