Dr Kesab Battacharya president AIFUCTO, chaired the meet. Jammu and Kashmir was represented by president J&K College Teachers Association Prof Tariq Ashai.

Deliberations on different issues including New Education Policy were held during the meeting.

Prof Tariq Ashai in his speech impressed upon the AIFUCTO leadership to fight for the uniform adoption of UGC rules and regulations across the country in letter and spirit to avoid discrimination and disparity amongst same cadre working in different colleges and universities of the country. Prof Ashai pointed out that the incentive for higher qualification despite clear cut recommendation from UGC has not been implemented in J&K till date. While speaking on NEP, Prof Ashai advocated the partial privatization of the higher education sector to boost infrastructure development, accountability, competitiveness and work culture and at the same time demanded adequate scholarships for brilliant students and financial aid for under privileged and backward classes.

Dr Arun Kumar general secretary AIFUCTO sought cooperation from the state leaders to make AIFUCTO a much stronger organisation to shape the future of India in the field of higher education.
