JUTA and KUTA meets Hon'ble Governor regarding various issues pertaining to teaching Community in Srinagar on 12th of October 2015

Circular

Jammu University Teacher Association Executive Council met on December 1, 2014 wherein it was unanimously resolved that JUTA members will not tolerate any action against teachers who have decided not to attend the Election Training on 30/11/2014 and if any action taken then JUTA members will go to indefinite strike immediately. As it is known that earlier JUTA Fraternity has resented the decision of the University regarding sending the names of the teachers for election duty and the same was conveyed to the Registrar earlier citing the genuine reasons for not performing the election duties. It is pertinent to mention here that the authorities instead of understanding the reasons given by the JUTA have made it a prestige issue and trying various tactics to intimidate the teachers thereby spoiling the academic environment of the prestigious institution of the State.

Addressing the teaching community, the JUTA President Prof J P Singh Joorel said that they would wait for the outcome of the Unversity Council meeting which is being held tomorrow and if nothing favourable comes out of this meeting, the JUTA will then decide about further course of action which would be in the interest and benefit of entire teaching faculty of the Univeristy of Jammu.

JAMMU, OCT 09: The teaching community of the University of Jammu today came out openly and whole heartedly in support of the Jammu University Teachers' Association's (JUTA) call for two days' protest against the hasty implementation of the UGC amended regulations 2013 in front of the Vice Chancellors' Secretariat at the University of Jammu. The teachers are protesting against the decision of the University authorities to take the UGC fresh guidelines of capping system for the appointments and promotions of teachers in the university, which without any deliberations is being taken as an item before the University Council.

Addressing the teaching community, the JUTA President Prof J P Singh Joorel said that the teaching faculty is struggling hard for the effective implementation of the UGC guidelines 2010 by the University of Jammu and in the meanwhile, the UGC has issued fresh guidelines which introduced capping system for the appointments and promotions of teachers. The University of Jammu has shown exceptional interest for the implementation of amended guidelines without deliberating its effects on the teaching fraternity at any platform. Asserting that all the UGC guidelines should be adopted by the university in toto and not in parts, Prof Joorel criticised the university administration for immediate implementation of stringent guidelines throwing to the winds the beneficial aspects of the guidelines. Prof Joorel further said that the UGC guidelines of capping should have been discussed within the University and then it should have been taken to the appropriate bodies for its adoption by giving sufficient time to the faculty members to get acquainted and accordingly pursue their teaching and research on the quality side. |
Criticising the university actions, the teachers, while speaking at the protest, denounced the pro-active approach of University in implementing harsher part of the guidelines forsaking the provisions of the guidelines which are incorporated to provide incentives and gives motivation to teachers to constantly raise the bar of efficiency in teaching and research. |
Prof Dalip Singh Jamwal, who is also the teacher representative in the University Council, assured the JUTA members that he would effectively see it that reservations of the teaching community on the matter will be put fourth before Council and same should not be allowed to be implemented without serious deliberations within the university as it affects the quality of teaching and research in general and the career prospects of the teaching fraternity in particular which has already taken the toll because of the introduction of the API scheme.
Those who spoke at the occasion included Prof S K Khosa, Prof Yash Pal Sharma, Dr. K S Charak, Dr. Virender Koundal, Dr Ramni Gupta, Prof Abha Chouhan, Dr Vishwa Raksha, Dr. P B K S Baba, Prof Taj-ud-din, Dr Jaspal Singh.
