University Grants Commission 'Bhartiya Bhasha Diwas' to be celebrated on DEC 11

The University Grants Commission (UGC) Chairman M Jagadesh Kumar has inaugurated a novel user-friendly recruitment portal known as the CU-Chayan for Central University faculty members. This portal is projected to address the recruitment needs of all stakeholders. UGC has developed the CU-Chayan portal with the goal of generating a facilitating environment for both universities and applicants. Universities are empowered to manage every facet of the recruitment process independently through it. Currently, about 31% of university positions remain vacant. The portal encompasses various features and resources for applicants and enables a seamless application and recruitment process.

Important Points:

  1. Understand the purpose and functionality of the CU-Chayan portal created by UGC.
  2. Be aware of the benefits it offers for universities and applicants in the recruitment process.
  3. Acknowledge that the portal does not affect the autonomy of Central Universities in faculty recruitment.
  4. Note that the portal's creation involved collaboration with Vice Chancellors of Central Universities and included their feedback.
  5. Remember that the Government of India's reservation system continues to apply.
