THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Faced with complaints that the faculty members of engineering institutions, especially those in the private self-financing sector, are being poorly paid by managements, the A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University (KTU) has issued an order laying down guidelines for the implementation of the AICTE pay scale in its affiliated colleges. Since its inception, the university has been directing the managements and principals of the colleges to hire qualified faculty members and to implement the pay scale as per AICTE norms. In recent times, the quality of engineering education in the state has taken a beating due to the poor quality of faculty. “Due to non-payment of AICTE scale, the faculty members are opting for better institutions. This frequent change of faculty affects the academic activities and the student community has to suffer. This order has been issued by the university in a bid to raise the standards of engineering education,” KTU Pro Vice-chancellor M Abdul Rahman said.

The affiliated colleges have been asked to follow AICTE norms in terms of qualification, salary and other employment conditions. The AICTE has also notified punitive action for not maintaining prescribed pay scales or qualification. This includes withdrawing the affiliation of the institution, suspension of affiliation or approval of seats for a particular academic year, withdrawal affiliation to a particular course and also reducing its intake.  KTU Vice-chancellor Kuncheria P Isaac has constituted a monitoring committee with Prof Gangan Prathap, former Vice-chancellor of CUSAT and honorary professor, KTU, as the chairman to monitor the implementation of the AICTE norms.  “The committee has been empowered to look into the grievances of the faculty in the implementation of norms and standards as laid down in the regulations of AICTE and KTU and also its amendments from time to time,” Rahman said.  “In case violation of AICTE norms is detected, the university will initiate action, including withdrawal of affiliation of the institution. The matter will also be brought to the notice of AICTE for withdrawal of approval to the institution,” he said. –  Courtesy
