UGC launches ‘CU-Chayan’, a unified faculty recruitment portal for central universities


By India Today Education Desk: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched a new portal named ‘CU-Chayan’ for faculty appointments in central varsities. The portal will offer a range of features including a consolidated listing of job openings across all participating universities.

Applicants will have a single login for applying to any of the universities, and personalised dashboards to help manage the application process. The applicant can also search for jobs using various filters like university name, location, designation, category, subject, type of employment, experience, education level, among others.

All future recruitments will take place on this portal while the current recruitments for which advertisements have already been issued will go on without using the portal.

The commission has also asked all CUs to deactivate their recruitment portal. The commission will be maintaining this portal for the benefit of all the CUs and is not a centralised recruitment process for all central universities.

For universities, the platform will provide real-time tracking of applications, customised admin dashboards, and configurable advertisement rules. It also enables a completely online process, including payment gateways, from initial application to screening, and includes built-in e-mail communication tools and online feedback and reference options for referees.

According to statistics shared by the Ministry of Education in Parliament in March, over 11,000 teaching posts are vacant in central higher education institutes.

The University of Delhi (DU), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Kharagpur and the Indian Institute of Management (IIM)-Tiruchirappalli have the maximum number of teaching staff vacancies among central universities, the IITs and IIMs.
