The 19 colleges of Gujarat Technological University (GTU) which were given notices by the University regarding insufficient staff have furnished the fresh staff profiles. These colleges provide courses in ME and M Pharm.
According to the officials of GTU, nearly 70% of the fresh staff recruited is from South India. “We are not ruling out the possibility of colleges making temporary recruitments just to avoid cancellation of their affiliation and hence we have sent directives that the GTU shall carry out routine checks,” continued the officials.
GTU will transfer the students to other colleges once the staff members shown on the rolls of the colleges are found to be teaching there.
GTU has issued such strict directive just to ensure that the staff appointed by the colleges from outside the state is not on temporary basis. The colleges might do that just to avoid coming on the No-Admission List (NAL) issued by the University.
