Every year allegations are made that appointments in the state’s universities are made in an adhoc manner, and ensure the absorption of influential candidates irrespective of the fact if they have the needed capabilities, skills and meet the norms. In fact many a times rules have been tweaked to appoint favourites of politicians, and those who are in the good list of the Vice Chancellors, and other senior staff of the university.
In fact the universities because of the autonomy they have become a favourite haunt of the blue-eyed candidates who like the jobs here because of good salaries, non-transferable nature of job, and avenues for steady growth. There is little or no accountability as far as delivery on the job in education or administration is concerned. Once in the system a person knows he can enjoy the power and perk without being answerable to anyone. universities in Jammu
In the latest instance it has been alleged that norms were tailored to employ favourites in the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board university. In order to accommodate a candidate the university delayed the release of final list, wrote to the chancellor, and did things which it would not do in the normal course. universities in Jammu
Similar allegation have also rocked the Central university in Jammu which has been recently established. There have been allegations how influential and affluent candidates close to the politicians, and bureaucrats have been accommodated in the pecking order. The situation is same at the Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University in Rajouri which has been rocked by controversies.
The university of Jammu has also remained embroiled in similar controversies as powerful and affluent make hay while hard working and genuine candidates line up the employment exchanges for want of jobs.
