The Allahabad University has called for the recruitment of teachers in its vacant posts. The recruitment is going to commence from April 15 and the last day to apply for the vacant positions is May 15, 2019. The recruitment will be done on the basis of 200-point roaster system as implemented by the University Grant Commission (UGC). The total no. of seats vacant are 500.
IIT has decided that AU would call 10 candidates for each vacant position and would follow the norms for screening as per the guidelines laid down by UGC on July, 2018.
200-point Roaster System
The 200-point roaster system complies that among every 200 posts, 99 posts will be reserved for SC, ST and OBCs.
The controversy emerged 2 years back when the Allahabad High Court curbed the appointments of teaching and non-teaching staff because as to clarify the issue whether 13-point roaster system will be applicable on the EWS reservations or the 200-point roaster system. Though, later on the Allahabad High Court renewed the order.
