CONTEST THE SENATE ELECTIONS TO HOLD A PHD DEGREE

An amendment to the Maharashtra Universities Act has altered the eligibility criteria for candidates who wish to contest the university senate elections. The amendment requires teachers and principals who wish to contest the senate elections to hold a PhD degree. The new criteria will be introduced after the present senate’s term ends in October 2011. Some senate members however have termed the amendment as unfair stating that while principals eligibility for contesting elections is in harmony with the eligibility for principal’s appointment, the eligibility rule for teachers is not in harmony with the existing rules for appointment of teachers. Besides holding a PhD degree, principals and teachers will be required to have served at least five times either as a paper setter or examiner or moderator or chairman/coordinator of Central Assessment Programme (CAP) at the university exams.
