The Chemistry Department of Delhi University is being blamed for showing partiality in the appointment of PhD supervisors.The department is being blamed of following the old rules in appointment rather than the revised rules which were brought under consideration in the recent Academic Council meeting.The department has refused to allow 30 college teachers to apply for the appointment.
The previous rule required the teachers to show the proof of at least three years of experience and also allowed the authorities to visit their college to make sure of their experience.The new rule, however,allowed the professor with five publications in a journal or an associate professor with two journal publications to apply for the supervisor‚Äôs post.The teachers also claimed that the department was following a discriminatory policy against college teachers to stop them from their research.
Although the department head,Ramesh Chandra said that they were not following a discriminatory policy and were looking in the applications of all the teachers and claimed that the visit to the colleges was just to check that the infrastructure and funds were available for the research.
