‘Irregularity’ in profs’ recruitment
The Himachal Pradesh Students’ Federation of India (SFI) has raised questions over “corrupt practices” in the recruitment of teaching faculty by HPU VC SP Bansal. The SFI said two posts of professors in the Biotechnology Department were advertised in December 2019, for which many applications were received. Similarly, in 2020, one seat of professor in the Department of Physical Education was advertised. In February, one seat of a professor from the Biotechnology Department was shifted to the Physical Education Department, claimed the SFI. The post, which was advertised two years back, has been shifted to another department. The SFI has demanded the withdrawal of the decision.
