Itanagar: Barely a day after having faced with an ‘unexpected’ protest from students that led to the cancellation of scheduled interview for 91 faculty positions over the issue of job reservation for the scheduled tribe (ST), Rajiv Gandhi University on Tuesday clarified that the University has been following the UGC/DoPT Guidelines and Government of India Recruitment Rules since its conversion as Central University on April 9, 2007.

“Based on the Central Government reservation rules, several advertisements have been issued and appointments made so far on the basis of 200 points Roster Register of DoPT/Govt of India Guidelines issued from time to time in direct recruitment for teaching positions.

It is to be noted that the Govt of India reservation policy is being implemented by all Central Government Institutions including those located in Arunachal Pradesh such as NERIST, NIT, etc,” RGU Registrar Dr N T Rikam said in a statement.

He said, as per the decision of the 44th Executive Council meeting held on February 19, the University had issued an advertisement on February 25 for filling up of 91 teaching positions. Accordingly, the interview was scheduled from September 12 to 17 as the first phase.

“However, to a utter surprise of the university authority a mob of around 100-150 students led by All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) and All Nyishi Students’ Union (ANSU) literally gheraoed the administrative block in the morning hours and prevented the conduct of the scheduled interview on Monday. It is to mention that no prior representation in writing or verbal has been received by the university authority on the issue of reservation policy or opposition to the scheduled interview,” the Registrar said.

“Nevertheless, the university authority has readily agreed for a dialogue and accordingly it was decided in the meeting to halt the scheduled interview for the time being. The issues raised by the students’ bodies will be thrashed out through a Committee to be constituted by the university authority,” it said.

“Educational Institutions like University is a pious institution of learning and gaining of wisdom and knowledge. Every stakeholder including students, teachers, non-teaching employees and society at large must contribute meaningfully for creating academic environment,” the statement added.
