The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched CU– Chayan, a unified faculty recruitment portal for Central Universities.
Announcing the launch of the portal, UGC chairman M. Jagadesh Kumar said the user-friendly portal would cater to the needs of all the stakeholders in the teachers’ recruitment process. The portal will provide a common platform for listing of vacancies, advertisements and jobs across all Central Universities. “The portal makes the recruitment process completely online starting from application to screening, with alerts to all the users of the portal,” the UGC Chairman said.
The portal has features for single applicant login for applying to any Central University, real-time tracking of application, personalised dashboard for each applicant, administration dashboard for each University or Department and built-in email communication tool.
The applicant can also search for jobs using various filters like the name of the University, location, designation, category, subject, type of employment, experience and education level.
The Chairman further said, “Using this portal, Central Universities will continue to advertise the positions, collect online applications, shortlist the applicants, conduct the interviews and appoint the faculty members as they were doing earlier. All the above activities will be carried out through the Admin dashboard for each university on this portal. UGC will be maintaining this portal for the benefit of all the CUs."
