RESENTMENT IS brewing among the managers of the colleges in the self financing sector (SFS) over the process adopted by the authorities of the Chhatrapati Sahu Ji Maharaj University (CSJMU) in interviewing candidates for appointment in these colleges. The interviews are being held at the old guest house of the university.
All the appointments have to be finalised by the end of June for renewal of registration of the colleges. Unless the colleges receive renewal, they will not be entitled to take admissions from July 1 this year.
According to SFS college managers, till last year the management was authorised to hold interviews of the candidates at the colleges.
The university appointed the external experts of the subject. It was the duty of the college management to ensure that the candidates fulfilled the required qualifications.
However, this year the university has changed the venue of the interviews from the college campus to the university campus.
The college authorities are informed about the dates of the interview only a few days in advance which causes problems for them in informing the candidates and the internal experts.
The external experts who come to take interviews also find it difficult to identify the representatives of the college managements.
There were a few cases where the external expert failed to report on the fixed date and the interview was cancelled.
There is no provision of appointing external experts from within the city colleges to save the time of the candidates and the management. The college has to wait for the fixing of the next date of interview by the university.
Besides this, a candidate for the post of lecturer is required to have a doctorate in the subject. But the Ph D should have been done before 2002. No candidate is eligible to apply if he received the degree after 2002. This very condition is difficult, say the SFS colleges’ managers.
The managers, however, appreciated the efforts of the university in checking the appointment of a single teacher in two SFS colleges by introducing computerised record system in the university. This would definitely improve the educational standards and stop the teachers from minting money at the cost of the students, the managers said.
