CHENNAI:� Fill up all the SC/ST� teaching vacancies� in all�
government colleges� as per� roster-based seniority as directed by the
High Court, demanded� the� Tamil Nadu University /Colleges SC/ST
Teaching and non-Teaching Staff Association here, on Wednesday. On
Tuesday the� HC had given a directive to the Higher Education
department to prepare a� seniority list as per the roster system.

In 2003, Jayaprakash, Director of� Collegiate Education, passed a
proceeding called the 336 proceeding , according to which seniority of
college teaching staff will be based on the date of joining. Prior to
2003, from 1998 onwards a caste-based roaster was followed. Dr
Kannaiyan, State coordinator of TN University /Colleges SC/ST Teaching
and non-Teaching Staff Association, speaking at a press meet said,
"Since the HC has given a direction to prepare a seniority list, we
hope the government led by Amma will soon� see through that all the
vacant SC/ ST appointments are filled."

Going by the roster system, now 20 SC/ST candidates have the seniority
to occupy the principal post in government colleges in TN.

Dr Kannaiyan� pointed out that no SC/ ST occupies top decision making
positions like Vice Chancellor, Registrar or Controller of Examination
in any of the 25 universities in TN. He also put forward a� demand to
follow� the roster system in the appointment of this top university
positions. In the nominated positions in the University's Senate and
Syndicate, they requested that an 18 percent reservation for SC/ST be
brought in.

They also demanded that the government scrap the new pension scheme
and revert to the old one, which will allow them to have monthly
pension as well as family pension and to pass the order for probation
declaration for all lecturers who have joined between 2007 and 2009 as
they have completed the mandated probation period of two years.

They� also wanted the government to soon ensure that all government
colleges appoint an SC/ST as coordinator of the SC/ST Cell as per the
UGC� norms. Dr Kannaiyan said, "Most colleges in TN don't even have an
SC/ST cell. The demands will be presented to the CM and respective
officials", he said.
