The Jamia Teachers Association (JTA) along with other Employee associations – namely Jamia Administrative Staff Association ( JASA) and Shafiqur Rehman Kidwai Association (SRKA)- have seen the report published in a national daily with regard to the affairs the university and are deeply shocked and anguished about the allegations for which a visitor enquiry is sought .
In an emergency meeting of all the associations of the university, it was discussed that the 5% supernumerary quota for Jamia teachers and employees (that translates into 2 or 3 seats in each programme) is in accordance with the existing provision in the other universities.
The Jamia teachers and employees, after a long struggle have succeeded in having this quota.
Jamia is the only university which has put in place such a quota. Some Central universities have a provision as high as 15% for its employees. The decision to implement 5% supernumerary quota was taken after following the due process.
There is no basis on the allegation that the SC and ST quota in faculty & staff employment has been abolished . Other baseless allegations levelled were also brushed aside .
The JTA and other employees association stand united against forces and vested interest working to destabilise the institution and tarnish its image
T he Associations further resolves to take up the matter with visitor of the university and MHRD in this regard by virtue of being the legitimate stakeholders of the university, said JTA’s secretary SM Mahmood.
