Committee receives several representations concerning the university
The Andhra Pradesh Legislative Committee on Welfare of BCs is not satisfied with Andhra University on the manner in which the rule of reservation has been implemented in appointments.
Its Chairman G. Thippe Swamy and members B. Masthan Rao, P. Viswa Prasada Rao, and M. Bikhspati Yadav were also not happy with the university officials for not attending the meeting with them on the university campus on Monday with full details.
Mr. Thippe Swamy also made it clear that a college can not hold back the transfer certificate of a student even if the fee reimbursement or other amount to be released by the government was due from him or her. The government would release the amount sooner or later and the student should not be given trouble, he said.
The committee received several representations concerning the university in the morning at the Circuit House and it was a surprise to see during the meeting at the AU that most of the problems were true, the Chairman said. He told Registrar in-charge K. Samrajyalakshmi to come to Hyderabad with all details of the number of posts filled in the teaching and non-teaching categories, job notifications, qualifications sought and qualifications of those appointed, details of roaster system followed. All the details are sought not only in the case of regular appointments but also the appointments made on contract and outsourcing basis on the campus colleges as well as the PG centres.
“The government made it a rule that roaster system must be followed even in a small organisation. Why it is not followed here?”, he asked.
He wanted Dr. Samrajyalakhsmi to report at Hyderabad with all the details within 15 days.
Earlier, Vice-Chancellor in-charge P. Geoge Victor informed the Commission that out of the existing 3,251 non-teaching posts, 1,982 were filled and 690 of the employees were from Backward Classes. He also gave the details of the teachers’ posts.
Mr. Thippe Swamy was surprised that rule of reservation was not followed while outsourcing 600 employees.
Principals of campus colleges explained the release of scholarship to BC candidates and expressed satisfaction over the work being done by the government departments.
The committee also wanted the AU administration to submit details of the applications received for UGC’s SAP scholarships to the research scholars, names of those selected and how the selection was made.
Responding to a request from the AU administration, Mr. Thippe Swamy said the Commission would recommend to the government to provide buildings for an additional hostel for girls at Visakhapatnam and for hostels for PG centres at Vizianagaram and Tadepalligudem.
