New Delhi, 31 July 2019 — The University Grants Commission of India (UGC) has, today (31 July 2019), sent a letter to the Vice-Chancellors of all Universities. UGC has asked them to “ensure that the details of all vacant posts, along with the reservations and advertisement details are uploaded” on the website of the National Higher Education Research Center (NHERC).

Earlier, in a bid to address the issue of shortage of quality teaching faculty in higher education institutions, the University Grants Commission (UGC) had issued guidelines for the recruitment of faculty.

The UGC has set a time-frame of six months for the entire recruitment process for the faculties, which includes:

  1. Identification of Vacancies.
  2. Permission for filling up Vacancies.
  3. Release of Advertisement for Vacancies.
  4. Constitution of the Selection Committee.
  5. Fixing of Dates of the Selection Committee Meetings.
  6. Scrutiny of Applications.

UGC Secretary, Rajnish Jain, in his previous (04 June 2019) letter to the Vice-Chancellors, had asked the institutions to comply with the UGC guidelines in letter and spirit and complete the recruitment at the earliest.

Main Points of UGC Guidelines for Recruitment of Faculty in Universities and Colleges:

• HEIs should follow the selection process as per their Acts, Statutes or constituent documents and per the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and other Measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education) Regulations, 2018.

• HEIs should, however, ensure that all the vacant posts, along with the reservations details, are uploaded on the NHERC online portal.

• The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) and the University Grants Commission (UGC) would do the monitoring of the filling up of the vacancies through the above portal.

• HEIs should initiate and complete the selection process within six months.

• The selection process should be strictly per the University Grants Commission (Minimum Qualifications for Appointment of Teachers and other Academic Staff in Universities and Colleges and other Measures for the Maintenance of Standards in Higher Education) Regulations, 2018 and as amended from time to time.

• Violations of the Guidelines described above may lead to appropriate action by the UGC against the institution, including withholding the grants.
