Guru Nanak Dev University re-advertises posts for disabled candidates
July 4, 2018
Recently, The Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) in Punjab had put up advertisements on openings for their various posts. But they failed to provide any details on openings for posts for disabled people. Disabled candidates who attended their interviews protested against this insensitive move of GNDU. Now, the university has decided to re-advertise for their post of Punjabi assistant professors in the category for disabled people!
Many disabled candidates alleged that those who are under qualified were selected for the posts over qualified disabled candidates.
An official from GNDU assured that the university does not believe in a biased recruitment. Hence, they will ensure that a fair selection process is done. The official also added that their recruitment processes are videotaped so that there is no room for confusion.
Currently, the university has made 20 appointments for permanent posts and 300 for contractual positions. But most likely, the university will change this after re-advertising for new candidates in the category for disabled people.
