Proefessors elevation in engineering college: A section of teachers alleges neptosim

engineering-college

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A section of Engineering College teachers has alleged that certain factual errors had crept into the news report regarding the promotion of Government Engineering College teachers.

The teachers involved in the associate professor case argued that the Supreme Court had considered Professor’s and Associate Professor’s Case separately and the news report on Professors’ case was true.

“The apex court had reinstated the high court’s cancellation of the rule that seven years’ time is required for associate professors to achieve PHD. The high court had cancelled it after finding the rule to be anti-constitutional. Special rule section 6എ(2) was reinstated without any time limit. The Supreme court had pointed out even if the associate professors don’t achieve PHD within seven years, they should not be degraded or their salary hike prevented,” the teachers pointed out.

The court order of 2009 and 2013 was to regularise the promotion given to professors in 2008. In 2014, high court order was implemented by degrading 43 professors without PHD. Those who got PHD within two years were appointed. After the Supreme Court Order, those who got appointment approached the Administrative Tribunal and got the date of implementation of order extended.
On November 7, 2017, the government issued a notification that the Supreme Court order will be implemented. On the basis of this, the Tribunal gave orders to regularise the appointments given since 2008.

There was also petitions against this. In the Tribunal’s order and the Supreme Court’s interim order it was asked whether promotions being given to assistant professors instead of degrading them was as per the Supreme Court order. But the higher education department’s argument that elevation will be given without degrading anyone is mere nepotism, according to them.
