The Job of two professors recruited in NIPER Mohali without approved post and proper advertisement are in jeopardy.
"Regularization of faculty appointed on ad-hoc basis will be illegal if faculty recruited does not go through a regular process of selection as per NIPER statutes and Govt. of India laws and rules, which are binding in matter of all recruitments in all govt. institutions including NIPER. I am eligible to compete for the post of Professor (Pharmaceutics) as per NIPER statute clause 4.1.3 ". A concerned deprived faculty made complain in this regard to the board of Governors (BOG), NIPER. Thus attempt to regularization of Dr. Jyoti Paliwal as Professor (Pharmaceutics) by officiating Director in the recent BOG meeting failed.
The same faculty again asked about present status of Dr. Paliwal citing NIPER statutes clause for student research committee formation through email to Officiating director. It is pertinent to mention that the one year ad-hoc appointment of Dr. Paliwal ended in May 2012.
In a similar case, recrutement of three in one professor Dr. Naresh Kumar as Professor in Pharmaceutical Management (NIPER Registrar Office Order no. F.1-3(293)/2011/Estt./1343 dated 19-10-2011), professor in Business Development group (SIGNED final minutes of 13th APDC meeting held at NIPER on 19-11-2011, as agenda item no. 13.6) and as a Professor in IPR Department (RTI response given vide NIPER Letter no. F 235/RTI 43/2012/1030 dated 4-5-2012) is also made without any advertisement and selection committee as per NIPER rule.
