HR crunch hits BGSBU, courtesy ‘mismanagement’
Some Self-Centered Academics Quitting For Money: VC
Srinagar, June 19: Baba Ghulam Shah Badshah University at Rajouri is facing a major human resource crisis with at least 60 teachers including a Dean, Director and various heads of departments quitting the varsity in the recent past, citing “lack of administrative control” and “unpleasant relation between the academics and administration.”
Informed sources told Greater Kashmir that a noted economist of the state and Dean of Management Studies has been allegedly forced to quit the University by the administration a few days back. After resigning from the post, the professor has returned back to Kashmir. Sources said that the University authorities allegedly resorted to “misconduct with him” in a recently held meeting. The Dean had been appointed by the former Vice Chancellor Masood Choudhary for the School of Management Studies. His quitting is understood to be a major blow to the School.
Apart from the Dean, a Director of Biodiversity has also left the University. He is understood to have been responsible for getting major funds from the Government of India and has also left following “unpleasant relations with the administration.”
Sources said that at least 60 teaching faculty members have left BGSBU in the past few years.
An Assistant Professor, who recently resigned from the University, said the varsity is “plagued with mismanagement and the grievances of teachers are not addressed.” “There is no policy for the welfare of teachers in the University,” he said. “The salary of teachers is full of disparity when compared with other universities. The teachers are time and again harassed for none of their fault.”
Sources said that some heads of departments of the University have also left headship and joined as lecturers in the State Higher Education Department.
HoD of the MCA Department has joined a College in Kashmir after quitting the varsity. Also, the Head of Department in Information Technology has also left and opted to be a teacher in the Higher Education Department.
In the wake of recurring resignations by senior faculty members, the University, according to sources, is going through a deep human resource crisis. “The varsity administration seems to be in a deep slumber over the HR crisis,” said a University official, wishing anonymity.
While the BGSBU Vice-Chancellor Prof Irshad Hamal sought to play down the issue saying “academics are not quitting the University,” he was quick to add that “some self-centered academics must be leaving for the sake of money and very little can be done about it.”
Prof Hamal said the University is already paying UGC grades to its academics and officers. “If at all there is any HR crunch in the University, it is nothing specific to it. It is 40 percent throughout the country,” he said.
