Govt Colleges Lecturers to boycott spot evaluation of HPU exams

The Government College Lecturers’ Union, Dharamsala, has decided to boycott the spot evaluation of Himachal Pradesh University examinations in protest against the government decision to implement the Academic Performance Indicator (API) criteria for promotion of college lecturers.

Satish Thakur, president of the union, said the API criteria for promotions were being implemented by the state government with retrospective effect that would affect the promotion chances of many lecturers in government colleges.

The API criteria had been recommended by the UGC, along with the new pay scales, for faculty of colleges. Research and published work is taken for consideration while working out the API score of candidates for promotional interviews.
