Cluster University Jammu creates additional burden on exchequer
New 7 deans appointed

Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 20: The newly created Cluster University of Jammu has created an additional burden on exchequer of cash-starved state of Jammu and Kashmir by appointing seven deans in the varsity, which is a new practice here.
These seven deans are: Dr Poonam Dhawan, former DDA University of Jammu, who has been posted as Dean Academic Affairs; Dr Geetanjali Andotra Rana, posted as Dean Research Studies; Dr Twinkle Suri, Associate Professor (English) has been posted as Dean Faculty of Arts; Dr S P Sharma has been posted as Dean Faculty of Sciences; Dr N K Gupta posted as Dean Faculty of Social Sciences; Dr Bhopinder Singh, Associate Professor has been posted as Dean Faculty of Engineering and Technology; and Dr Mushtaq Ahmad Lone, Principal GDC Poonch, has been posted as Dean Faculty of Education.
Usually, deans in University of Jammu or University of Kashmir or in any other university are appointed from within the department and it (dean) is an additional duty for the professors and they perform it on rotational basis.
"But the Cluster University of Jammu has started a new practice by appointing six deans exclusively for these posts", sources said, adding that in the other universities of the state, a professor is appointed as dean and he used to take classes of post graduation degree courses.
But these deans are not going to take classes in the Cluster University of Jammu and their posts would be additional burden on state exchequer. "The Finance department recently gave its consent for the creation of these new posts of deans, which means that salary against the posts of deans would be released", sources said, adding that most of the deans were of the level of Principal and their salary would run over Rs. 1 lakh per month.
"As per rough estimate, the state exchequer would have to bear additional burden of over Rs. 7 lakhs every month. This additional burden would have been avoided if the senior most teacher in the particular subject would be assigned the duty of a dean", sources said, adding that the proposal to appoint the deans was finalized by Higher Education department, which had reportedly taken proposal from the Cluster University of Jammu.
