Staff Reporter :
The University Grants Commission (UGC) said in a statement that some of the teachers and staff members of public universities are violating service rules by working with different government and non-government organisations without prior approval of authorities.
The commission said, "UGC came to know that some of the teachers and staff members of public universities are working with different government and non-government organisations without
prior approval of authorities, violating service rule. Even some of them are operating own businesses, which is also a violation of the rule."
The Commission also asked the authorities of the public universities to ensure that all teachers abide by service rule and take permission before working with other educational institutions and running own businesses.
"We are urging Vice Chancellors to ensure that all abide by the service rule," the statement added.
The UGC issued the statement on Sunday and also asked the public universities to utilise funds allocated for research properly.
It also asked authorities to prepare a list of students who will need assistance to buy smartphones to attend online classes during the coronavirus crisis.
The statement said that UGC had sent three separate letters to the Vice-Chancellors of 45 public universities regarding the matter.
UGC said it allocates public money for universities to do research. And public universities distribute the money after scrutinising the submitted project proposals following a review.
"But it seems that some public universities are flouting the rules," it said, adding, "We are urging all to ensure that allocated funds are given to only approved research projects."
UGC said that as the universities are closed for many days to prevent further spread of coronavirus, students are facing immense losses. UGC had urged all universities to go for online classes to minimise the loss.
It also sought free internet package and soft loan or grant to buy smartphones for students who need those from the government.
It asked all public universities to prepare a list of such students who need financial assistance to buy smartphones and send it to UGC by August 25.
