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.
