DAVV Indore Plans to Create New Teaching Posts 75 more vacancies to meet the student-teacher ratio. From Past One Year Nearly 170 teaching posts are lying vacant in its teaching departments at Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya. As Per Notification Out Of 171 vacant teaching posts at DAVV, 49 posts are of professors, 50 of readers and about 70 of lecturers/assistant professors. The process to fill these vacancies was undertaken in 2009, but after a complaint over irregularities was lodged with Raj Bhawan, process was deferred after appointment of a few teachers.
Acting vice-chancellor said that there are some departments like School of Social Science, School of Language and School of Commerce which does not have any techers. “Our first priority will be to get teaching posts created in these department first. As per a rough estimate, nearly 25 seats including 15 for School of Commerce will be created. Besides, we will create new posts in Institute of Engineering and Technology, Institute of Management Studies, School of Data Sciences and Forecasting,” Dhakad said. Do Check: AFCAT 2 Results 2017
In 2014, a three-time incharge vice chancellor of DAVV, Prof Rajkamal, and Prof HR Pal had retired. In 2015, Shridhar Patil from School of Life Science had retired. In 2013, ahead of National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) inspection, the DAVV had published an advertisement, inviting applications for nearly 165 vacant posts, but it turned out to be eyewash. The university put the recruitment process on the backburner after it was awarded Grade A by NAAC. No appointments were made to the vacant posts.
Dhakad said that they can’t avoid appointments of teaching staff anymore if it wants to improve its grading. “The NAAC peer team’s inspection is due in 2019. If we will not fill teaching posts we will get lower grade which will deprive DAVV of many national and international schemes, something which we do not want,” he added.
