UGC launches CU- Chayan; a faculty recruitment platform for central universities

UGC proposes

According to Jagadesh Kumar, Chairman, University Grants Commission, a unified recruiting platform called CU-Chayan has been developed for the recruitment of faculty in central institutions. According to Kumar, the portal will totally move the hiring process online and offer a centralised location for posting job openings across all central universities (CU).

“The portal will offer candidates looking for positions in core universities a centralised platform. They will sign up for an account on the portal and design a dashboard that is unique to them. They will be able to move their applications to any CU that has published faculty jobs, track them in real-time, and continuously updating them. Additionally, automatically generated emails will be sent to registered candidates alerting them to any CU’s new job postings, Kumar said.

Universities can track applications in real-time thanks to the portal. Additionally, real-time analysis and insights into the application process will be provided by the portal. The screening committee of the relevant university can inspect the applicant details and cross-reference each entry with the uploaded document. The webpage can also be used to record the points and remarks of the screening committee, he added.

“The UGC will collect data on how many positions are filled, how many vacancies there are, whether reservations are being made in accordance with the law, etc. using backend data analytics on the CU-Chayan portal. This will enable UGC to support CUs in accelerating the hiring process, according to the UGC chairperson.

Currently, each of the 46 central universities conducts its own recruitment procedures through a separate portal and posts job openings on its official website and in newspapers.

He said that with CU-Chayan, the central institutions would maintain their current practise of publishing newspaper adverts but would “have to deactivate their recruitment portals”.
