HYC written to Union Education Minister objecting the outsource non teaching staff in NEHU  

Shillong, July 19: The Hynniewtrep Youth Council today has sent memorandum to Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Education Minister Government of India and to the Minister of State for Education Prof. Rajkumar Ranjan Singh.

The  Memorandum submitted by the HYC is demanding scrapping of recruitment process for non-Teaching posts under “outsourcing” and necessary action against Prof. S.K.Srivastava for flouting rules of recruitment of Govt. of India and NEHU and other directions by Union Government-reg.

In the  Central Executive Council of the HYC in the memorandum stated that the non-statutory and illegal steps initiated by outgoing Vice-Chancellor of NEHU, Prof.S.K.Srivastava to fill up vacancies of non-teaching positions in the University numbering about 35 in a totally non-transparent and arbitrary manner of violating all established rules and principles guiding selection process.

In the memorandum the HYC stated that Prof.S.K.Srivastava, through the Executive Council of the University, of which he is the Chairman, decided that the University shall “outsource” the recruitment process of 35 non-teaching posts.

The HYC mention that NEHU, as a central university has recruitment rules for appointment of qualified candidates in non-teaching posts, none of which support such an arbitrary and un-statutory proposition of ‘outsourcing’, which is not only unprecedented, but also in total contravention of recruitment rules.

Recruitment rules assign the responsibility of entire selection process on the University and its Authorities. It does not allow for outsourcing of recruitment, under no circumstances.

As Prof.S.K.Srivastava, going by circular issued by MHRD vide letter  F. No. V. 11014/11/04-CDN, dated 19-7-2004 does not have the power to conduct recruitment and further MHRD letter F.No.19-58/2014-Desk (U) dated 7th August, 2014 clearly stated that “an officer appointed to perform current duties of an appointment can exercise administrative or financial power but he cannot exercise statutory powers, whether those powers are derived direct from an act of parliament.”.

Falling under the scope of these circulars and directives, Prof.S.K.Srivastava is neither entitled to conduct any recruitment nor entitled to outsoure the recruitment process. Therefore, the resolve to outsource is in violation of relevant rules.

The organization alleged that there might be foul play, manipulation and transparency, if such an illegal and irregular ‘outsourced’ recruitment process is carried out by the VC, who is debarred from exercise of any such power under law. This irregular process amounts to denying fair opportunity to job seeking tribal qualified candidate of the State by way of outsourcing.

The  apprehension is borne by the fact that NEHU, even before taking the decision on outsourcing in its Executive Council, had put up tender notice asking for expression of interest by interested parties who can undertake the task of recruitment as an outsourced agency.

This shows how from the very beginning the recruitment process is manipulated by Prof.S.K.Srivastava, alleged the HYC. Now the advertisement is removed from NEHU website, confirming our apprehension and suspicion that in the fear of getting exposed, the advertisement for outsourcing is removed silently.

The HYC demand that such a recruitment process needs to be revoked and scrapped as it violates all the extant recruitment rules and Govt. of India circulars and guidelines. The Menorandum was sign by the general secretary of the HYC Mr Roy Kupar Synrem.
