Probe: UoM seeks time to produce records

The University of Mysore (UoM) officials could able to produce the records of recruitment notifications and appointments of last three years and has sought a week’s time to produce the remaining records to a six-member team constitut­ed by the Backward Class­es Welfare Department (BCWD).

The BCWD had sent the team to the varsity to look into the alleged violation of roaster system, conversion of posts reserved for back­ward classes and SC/ST and overlooking the back­log vacancies.

After the day-long probe into the issue on Wednes­day, officials associated with the team led by Depu­ty Director (Administration), BCWD, Sabir Ahmed Mul­la, told City Today that the officials failed to show the records of recruitment noti­fications and appointments.

“We had asked them to furnish the records main­tained since 1977. They have requested for a week’s time to furnish all the doc­uments. Though they have produced records of last three years, there is no point in scrutinising them as it won’t serve the purpose. We want to check all the records maintained since 1977 to begin our investiga­tion,” the official added.

Earlier, several com­plaints were made to the state government, Governor and the BCWD regarding the violation of norms. Sev­eral letters were issued by the government to halt the recruitment process in the university until further or­ders were issued.

But, the varsity, over­looking the directives, is­sued a notification to fill up the 20 vacant posts of Pro­fessor, Associate Professor and Assistant Professors through direct recruitment.

The BCWD team which left for Bengaluru on Wednesday night will visit the varsity again after one week.
