The All India India Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organisation (AIFUCTO) is strongly opposing any attempts to abolish the National Eligibility Test (NET)
"We have already indicated to the regulatory bodies certain issues. If these are resolved, it would make the NET efficient. But an attempt to do away with the test will only increase corruption in recruitment and lower the quality of teaching. But I believe that the exemption from the NET given to MPhil and PhD teachers should continue," general secretary of AIFUCTO Ashok Kumar Barman said.
"No good university will open shop here. It will only bring useless institutions," he said.
Speaking on increasing the retirement age of the teachers, he said "We had
appealed to the State government to increase the retirement age of teachers
from 58 to 65 years, given the supply-demand gap in the industry. At the
same time the government should create more posts to ensure that employment
opportunities for youngsters were not affected by the move."
