Delhi Government has raised a matter of doubt against the letter sanctioned by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) to the Election Commission in the outset of this month.

Basically, the HRD Ministry asked the Election commission “In view of the UGC mandate to provide teaching and non-teaching faculty before start of new academic year in June, 2019, the election commission of India is requested to give its clearance/permission from model code of conduct for starting/continuing the recruitment process for regular teaching and non-teaching vacant posts in central universities,” read the letter

Manish Sisodia countering the words of the Ministry wrote in the letter to the Chief Election Commissioner, Sunil Arora; AAP government does not support the letter by Ministry to recruit the teachers in central universities in the midst of elections and the poll code enforcement. “I once again reiterate that Election Commission should not grant permission to such requests.” The letter was filed on April 1, 2019 and the answer is yet to be received from CEC.

According to the guidelines issued by the Election Commission of India for Election Commission of India’s Model Code of Conduct, ‘Government bodies are not to participate in any recruitment process during the electoral process.”

The HRD Ministry is concerned about the vacant seats of government teachers in central universities, since the appointments for teaching posts were put on hold in July last year in view of a judgement of the Allahabad High Court in April, 2017.

“In order to improve the teaching standards of higher educational institutions and to ensure that studies of students are not affected, it is necessary to start the recruitment process immediately so that these vacant teaching positions are filled before start of the new academic session,” the Ministry said.

It is to be noted that out of total number of 17,425 sanctioned teaching posts in 40 central universities, 6,141 posts are lying vacant as on November 1, 2018.
