UPHESC secretary Vandana Tripathi said that before the advertisement is issued for the recruitment process, the syllabus of the recruitment exam is to be revised as the last revision of the syllabus had taken place only in 2014. There is also another issue that needs to be settled first. When the directorate of higher education had sent the requisition for 2016 posts of assistant professor to the UPHESC, it had mentioned that the horizontal reservation be fixed by the commission at its level. “According to the set norms, horizontal reservation can be decided at directorate level. A letter in this regard has been written to the directorate by us and subsequently two reminders have also been sent. As soon as the reply comes, we plan to issue the advertisement,” said commission secretary.
