Sir,

Subject: UGC Regulation-2018 Feedback/Comments/Suggestions reg.

Ref: No.F.1-2/2017 (EC/PS) Dated: 9th February, 2018.

With  reference  to  the  subject  cited  above,  I  have  gone  through  the  Draft  UGC Regulation – 2018 which has been published in your website. It is required to be compared with UGC-2010 regulations (As amended in July 2016) to avoid some anomalies and discrimination with Librarians Cadre. It has been observed that the practicing Librarians anomalies are still alive i.e.; Promotion under CAS, Common Nomenclature, Superannuation, Faculty Development Programme, Minor/Major Research Projects, etc.

I hereby suggest to treat the Librarians at par with the Teachers without any discrimination to maintain common nomenclatures in designation like; Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor and Senior Professor. I request you to consider the Librarians Cadre in common superannuation, Faculty Development Programme and Minor/Major Research projects and promotion under CAS at par with teacher in order to maintain uniformity, quality and standards in higher education.

I am herewith attaching a table as per your mentioned format. Some of the anomalies are to be rectified  in  the  draft  and  some  feedbacks  and  suggestions  are  given  to  include  in  UGC regulation 2018 to avoid any discrimination with Librarians Cadre.
