A delegation of the National Institute of Technology Teachers Association Hamirpur (NITTAH), led by its president Rajeshwara Singh Banshtu, held detailed talks with the institute's director, Shrivastava, and submitted a 14-point charter of demands to him.
The delegation members said certain policies of the institute administration had adversely affected the prospects of the faculty. Citing an instance in which only 45 of the hundred faculty members received a one-time settlement last year, they demanded the institute should provide settlement for all of them.
It also explained that the seniority of the faculty members would be affected by the implementation of the four-tier norms recommended by the disputed Sarangi committee in the ongoing pre-recruitment process. The delegation requested the director to defer the proposed recruitments, as the norms were sub judice in various high courts.
Banshtu said the director promised the delegation the proposed recruitment would be deferred till the central human resources development ministry provided the revised guidelines.
