First, IITs will hire fee-based teachers |  India News
MUMBAI: For the first time since they were established, the IITs have placed advertisements for the hiring of faculty members based on fees. The contracting process, for which the IITs had autonomy, has been modified at the request of the Center and new deadlines have been set.
Since 2019, the ministry of education (then called the ministry of human resource development) has been lobbying centrally funded higher education institutions to apply the reserve policy in hiring. This time, the IITs have been delegated to the ministry. Announcements for recruiting SC / ST / OBC / EWS faculty members are posted at all institutes, including IITs.
A letter issued by the Ministry of Education in Augustend insists that reservation rules be adhered to and that vacancies “especially in the Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes, and other backward classes” be filled by September 4, 2022. IITs continue a continuous one-year recruiting process and the ministry had never set a deadline before.
IITs should be exempt from reservation: Panel
The time limit poses difficulties due to the shortage of engineering PhD candidates, even more so from the SC / ST / OBC categories: a PhD is the minimum eligibility criterion. Typically, in one year, IITs in metropolitan areas manage to recruit around 35 faculty members, 40 in a good year. “It will be impossible to fill hundreds of vacancies,” said one director. While some institutes have advertised vacancies for various specific positions, others have enlisted all departments where there is at least one vacancy.
“Each IIT has followed its own process. We are all recruiting under mission mode. But while IIT Bombay has announced 50 positions, IIT Madras has announced 49. Others like IIT Delhi, Roorkee, Hyderabad, Kharagpur have enlisted departments where there are vacancies, ”said a dean (faculty). All of the ads encourage women of disadvantaged backgrounds to apply as well.
In June 2020, a committee created to suggest the implementation of the reserve in the central educational institutes had said that the IITs are institutes of national importance and should be exempt from reserve. He said that the issue of the reservation will be left to the board of each IIT and that if the quota is implemented in the hiring, the positions of professor and assistant professor will be waived. However, that report is gathering dust.
