The University of Delhi has started the process to make teachers of colleges in its place a professor. More than 4 hundred teachers of Delhi University affiliated colleges will become professors, which will also increase the number of students doing research. Not only this, but there is also preparation for the promotion of senior professor to the professors appointed in DU departments.
According to UGC rules, 6 researchers can do a Ph.D. in the context of 1 professor. Then as the seats are vacant, the professor can take the students. Not only this, but these teachers of colleges will also get the same benefit of salary that the university professor gets.
The number of researchers at Delhi University is not much at present. As most departments enroll researchers as per the number of professors, but with the boost in the number of professors in colleges, seats will now be increased for students of several disciplines for Ph.D. admission. Moreover, the possibility of opening of related subject departments in colleges has also increased. Earlier, few teachers were allowed to research very few colleges.
Moreover, in colleges, the posts of Associate and Assistant Professor were nominated. But now associate professor having specified qualification of professor will be facilitated to the professor.
Dr. Balram Pani, Principal and Dean of Colleges of Bhaskaracharya College in DU, said that our effort is that if the teacher who fulfills the qualifications specified for the professor is going to retire in December, then they should be facilitated as Professor in November. Teachers of more than 4 hundred colleges will get the benefit of becoming professors. The screening process has started. The college council will be created and will finalize this process. This will increase by about 2 and a half thousand seats for researchers.
What Is The Eligibility Criteria To Become A College Professor?
As per the UGC rules, only those teachers of the college will become professors who will fulfill the qualification prescribed by UGC. The UGC set up the rules in 2018 for this. Under this, the publication of research papers, the guidance of researchers for Ph.D., and other qualifications. After this, the selection committee will decide whether the prescribed teacher has the qualification of the professor or not.
Moreover, Teachers of all colleges are not able to get PhDs in DU right now. Teachers who have applied and got permission to get a Ph.D. under their direction in DU. He still does Ph.D. Earlier, college teachers could not even get a Ph.D.
