UoM likely to appoint teaching faculty

The University of Mysore (UoM) is likely to begin the process of appointment of 140 teaching faculty members, which was stopped, following the objection from the Department of Social Welfare.

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has convened a meeting of the officials and the authorities concerned on December 11 to discuss about the appointment. K S Rangappa, during his tenure as vice chancellor, had invited applications to fill the 140 vacant posts in different departments. But the authorities of the Social Welfare department raised an objection to the appointment and thus, the process was stayed.

As the number of permanent teaching faculty members is below 40%, the varsity should appoint permanent faculty. As per the University Grants Commission (UGC), all varsities should maintain a minimum of 40% teaching faculty.

Minister for Higher Education Basavaraj Rayareddy, Social Welfare Minister H Anjaneya, Education department Chief Secretary, UoM Registrar D Bharati and in-charge vice chancellor C Basavaraju, will attend the meeting.
