Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, June 4: One-day convention of College and University teachers of the Northern States was held in Chandigarh under the aegis of All India Fedration of University and Colleges Teachers Organisations (AIFUCTO). It was hosted by Punjab University Teachers Association (PUTA) in connection with the Goldern Jubilee year of AIFUCTO.
A delegation of College Teachers, representing J&K State was led by Dr Avinash Kumar Gupta, president, J&K CTA (Jammu wing) along with Dr Vijay Kumar Sharma (advisor), Prof Ranjeet Singh Jamwal (vice president) and Dr Neeraj Gupta (joint treasurer) attended the convention.
In the meeting it was felt that the State Government do not understand the policy perspective of UGC and Government of India, which has been reflected in non implementation of UGC notifications by the State Governments. Dr Avinash Kumar Gupta pointed out that API score guidelines need to be reviewed for college teachers, in view of the fact that facilities for conducting research work in the colleges still does not exist.
Further, UGC deadlines for orientations/refresher courses should be extended, as it was not possible for teachers to attend the same during the academic sessions. It was unanimously decided to form a coordination committee of University and Colleges teachers to take up the issues with the UGC and HRC ministry.
