It seems that the appointment of the temporary staffs at Yuvaraja College, a constituent college of varsity might take a long process as the University of Mysore has received yet another letter from Department of Higher Education to freeze the temporary recruitment of 48 assistant professors.
The Higher Education Department had red signalled the appointment process in the college by issuing the letter to stop the recruitment, to which the college had gone a step ahead to conduct the interviews by reverting with the clarification to the government.
The letter issued by the department to the college asking to stop the recruitment which claims to be the violation of guidelines of UGC and State Government. In the letter issued by R Somashekhar, Deputy Secretary, Higher education to the Vice Chancellor of UoM, K S Rangappa stated that the notification of the recruitment was issued by violating the UGC and state government’s guidelines and the recruitment should be stopped with immediate effect.
Further, the government has asked the University to submit a detailed report on the process to ensure whether all the rules were fulfilled in the temporary recruitment. Meanwhile, a group of temporary lecturers working at the Yuvaraja’s College have approached the High Court for a stay in the temporary recruitment claiming that they were not taken into account for ongoing process, to which the matter will be heard on November 10.
