CU-Chayan Portal

The UGC has introduced a new platform to hire faculty members in central universities. The portal, CU-Chayan, will provide a consolidated list of job openings across all 46 central universities under the Union Ministry of Education. According to the Union Government’s recent submission in the Lok Sabha, nearly 31% of sanctioned positions in central universities are vacant. This portal will address this issue by fast tracking the recruitment process.

How the Portal Works

On the new portal, central universities will still be responsible for advertising job openings, accepting applications, screening applicants, conducting interviews, and hiring faculty members, just as they did before. However, all of these tasks will be managed through the admin dashboard for each university on the portal. Applicants will find a consolidated list of openings across the central universities, personalized dashboards to help manage the application process, and filters such as location, designation, subject, experience, and education level to view openings that suit them.

Benefits for Applicants and Universities

  • Both applicants and universities will benefit from the CU-Chayan as it provides a simple interface to apply for job openings.
  • The portal will also throw up real-time data on vacancies, applications under consideration, and whether the reservation policy is being followed or not.
  • It will fast-track the recruitment process without centralizing the faculty hiring for the central universities.
