Early Times Report

Srinagar, Nov 20: The Vice-Chancellor of University of Kashmir has sacked Director and contractual faculty of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Kaushal Kendra after two of its B.Voc courses overran deadlines by a huge margin. According to the details Director of DDU Kaushal Kendra along with three contractual staff members were relieved “with immediate effect” owing to closure of the project, which was launched by KU in 2019.
Notably, the B.Voc course in Automotive Technology and B.Voc course in Electronic Media overran completion deadlines, with students of one batch left with incomplete syllabus and without examinations for more than a year.
Surprisingly, while the Central project, worth Rs 3 crore, was closed almost a year ago, it is only this month that the KU acted to shunt out the contractual faculty and Director after academic and financial irregularities in the programme implementation surfaced in the media.
“Now that DDU Kaushal Kendra failed to complete the courses, the remaining part of the two courses has now been handed over to Media Education Research Centre in case of Electronic Media, and to Institute of Technology Zakura Campus in case of Automotive Technology,” sources added.
The Directorate of Kaushal Kendra, according to the insiders, fared poorly from day one on the implementation front.
“The courses were supposed to get completed in 2022 with the whole project coming to an end, but one full batch is yet to complete the syllabus while another is yet to appear in final examinations,” sources added.
The Director and Contractual faculty, who overran contract period drew salary and emoluments in excess.
