The government’s decision to sideline net-set qualifiers working on CHB basis from examination work is proving detrimental to the examination process. Since there is not enough manpower to appoint supervisors for the examinations, many colleges have given the responsibility of supervision to the students, so the question arises about the transparency of the examination.
A GR has been issued by the State Government on 17 October 2022, according to which it has been decided not to give examination work to ‘CHB’ holders working in colleges. Thousands of ‘CHB’ holders are working across the state, and due to this decision, they have called for non-cooperation in the examination. Since the government has taken this decision, the ‘CHB’ holders have boycotted the examination process, which is having an adverse effect on the examination process.
Due to this decision only permanent teachers will have to carry out the responsibility of supervision, their number is less than required. Therefore, it has come to light that many colleges have to give the responsibility of invigilators to the students in the ongoing university examinations. This type is going on in many colleges of the city, for the examinations of one branch, the students of the graduate and post-graduate departments of the other branch are working as supervisors.
A sense of knowing injustice
Many teachers working on the principle of ‘CHB’ have expressed the opinion that ‘CHB’ holders are knowingly being unfairly treated by the government which only announces the recruitment of professors. Since highly educated qualified teachers are sidelined and the responsibility of invigilator is given to the students, also the ‘CHB’ holders are also taking a non-cooperative attitude, the question arises that how seriously will the exams be conducted.
Preparations are underway to implement the new education policy from 2023 itself. But, what planning has the government done regarding the recruitment of professors to implement this educational policy? Work stoppage movement has been going on for 20 days through the Sangharsh Samiti during the examination period, and the government has not communicated with the Sangharsh Samiti.
