UGC Guidelines

UGC has released guidelines on the promotion and workload of professors.

  1. Equal emphasis has been placed on research; teaching and training ; and co-curricular activities., emphasizing the comprehensive role of teacher in educational institutions.
  2. Scientific method of performance calculation, PBAS ( performance based appraisal system ). This may reduce the discretion and favouritism in awarding promotions.
Why these guidelines are being opposed:
  1. Qualitative aspects of teaching have been neglected : such as giving attention to weak students, encouragement of creativity, value development etc.
  2. One size fits all approach : all level of education have treated in similar manner. In contrast ,at UG level more emphasis should be on teaching and training, and at PG level emphasis should be research
  3. Quantification of performance indicators will make teacher limit themselves in achieving the targeted topic of subject rather than covering all aspects of a subjects.
  4. Further, cut off criterion for promotion may have a fallout : teachers instead of putting all their energy and efforts will limits themselves in achieving cut off.
