Delay in promotion of Mysore University Teachers

Updated on Mon, 01 October 2012 at 20:00 IST

Under the career advanced scheme teachers working at University of Mysore (UoM) might have to wait longer for their promotion.

The written anonymous letter urging government not to allow UoM to promote its teachers when the incumbent vice-chancellor is on the verge of retirement reported by the Karnataka State Open University teachers (KSOU).

The last date for the receipt of the application as UoM issued a notification urging its teachers who are due for promotion to apply for the same under the UGC's career advancement scheme september 17th.

They argue that the government prevented KSOU from making new recruitments citing the reason of its VC's impending retirement. The sources in KSOU argued that UoM cannot take unilateral policy decisions and make recruitments when its VC is due to retirement in december, the rule then should apply to UoM as well.

A teacher in UoM said that "Recruitments and Promotion are two different aspects and incomparable."

The Teacher pointed out that promotions are purely based on the academic activities of an individual teacher and appraisal reports from the concerned heads."UoM has followed due procedure in issuing this notification and governor has approved the statute governing promotions which was reworked after implementation of new UGC scale in 2006."
