Governor's objection to centralised panel for varsity recruitment

Governor Vajubhai Vala is understood to have taken objection to the state government’s proposal to constitute a centralised committee to clear recruitments in all universities in the state.

The government had proposed amendments to the Karnataka State Universities Act, 2000 by constituting a committee for recruiting both teaching and non-teaching staff in all universities.

At present, the recruitments are made by individual universities. The government had proposed the centralised committee in the wake of reports of irregularities in recruitments in some universities.

A section of vice chancellors had opposed the government’s proposal and a petition had been submitted to the governor, who is also the chancellor of state universities, seeking his intervention.

The governor’s office, in a letter to Higher Education Minister Basavaraj Rayareddy, is learnt to have advised  that the  government drop the move as it is detrimental to autonomy of universities.
