Central Executive Council (CEC) NUTA Sunday said that the UGC has pointed out “serious anomalies and objections” to the MHRD on the new proposed Ordinance of Nagaland University passed by the vice chancellor reportedly containing certain “illegal restrictions” on the university teachers.
CEC NUTA president, Rosemary Dzuvichu and general secretary, Dr. Neivesto Venuh said it received a copy of the comments of the UGC from the MHRD on June 15 on the proposed Ordinance which clearly stipulated that the Ordinance could only come into effect from the date of approval of the MHRD and not before.
It was stated that the UGC has raised objections and pointed out “very serious anomalies” in the proposed Ordinance which contained serious violation of government rules on leave, recruitment, reservation policy and laid down UGC norms on scholarships, admissions, PhD guidelines etc. NUTA said the UGC has also objected that the sanctioned post of Director College Development Council cannot be changed to Dean, College Development Council nor Committee be turned into a Commission.
Owing to such anomalies, NUTA said NU has to follow the NEHU Ordinance till today.
It was also stated that the VC has been asked to incorporate into the Ordinance, the Code of Ethics and Conduct adopted by the UGC Task Force headed by Prof. Yashpal and the All India Federation of University and College Teachers Organisation in 1988, which guaranteed the Teachers full civic and political rights of this democratic country. NUTA said that the Code of Ethics and Conduct allowed teachers to associate and air grievances through their organisational bodies, to attend conferences, workshops and seminars, contribute and extend service to the community and even hold public offices, amongst a host of other rights. The document was a proof that Central Civil Service Conduct Rules were not applicable to University and College Teachers in the country, NUTA said.
NUTA said it had earlier raised strong objections to the VC and the MHRD, on the illegal action of the VC in violating the decision of the Academic Council to rectify anomalies in the proposed Ordinance within one month. It said several rectifications proposed by the members of the committee from Kohima Campus were also not incorporated in the final draft of the Ordinance. However, the VC hastily passed the proposed Ordinance with serious anomalies by the Executive Council within one week, after the meeting of the Academic Council in 2009, NUTA said.
A meeting of the CEC NUTA of the three campuses has been scheduled for June 30 to deliberate on the anomalies in the Ordinance.
Meanwhile, NUTA said it had earlier requested for written clarification from the MHRD, after the VC illegally suspended three NUTA leaders for the second time in November 2009, citing CCS Conduct Rules. It said that the NU Executive Council in the Second EC meeting had adopted the CCS Conduct Rules in respect of other employees in the University i.e, non teaching staff and officers, which included the VC.
