Someone who has managed major projects and has a lot of hands-on experience or is a fantastic dancer or musician. That is not possible under the current regulations,” said UGC head M Jagadesh Kumar.

So special posts were created, he claimed. “The experts will only need to have proven experience in a certain domain,” he continued. Their tenure depends on the experts’ and institutions’ needs. Experts who retire at the age of 60 can work as full-time or part-time academics until age 65.

On Thursday, vice-chancellors of central institutions met with Kumar and resolved to form a committee to revise teacher appointment regulations. The meeting was called to address, among other things, the National Education Policy. With a unified portal, the UGC would streamline and ensure teacher appointments. According to the Ministry of Education, approximately 10,000 teaching jobs were empty in state-funded universities in December 2021.
