Uniform rules for university hirings

Vice-chancellors of several universities have agreed to frame rules for appointment to various posts in accordance with UGC guidelines.

Former VC of Gulbarga University V B Coutinho said the VCs have agreed to submit the details needed for framing unform rules for appointment within eight days.

“Recruitments and appointments have been stalled in almost all the universities. We need to fill the vacant posts. The Karnataka State Universities Bill (2000) will be amended to include the uniform rules. Since the governor is also the chancellor, these developments will be brought to his notice,” he said.

Once the law is amended, the appointments committee will decide on all appointments, helping to curb irregularities alleged in the recruitment process, he said. Coutinho said that Wednesday’s was a preliminary meeting and the VCs will meet again to discuss the issue further.
