CAS hopes rekindled at AU
Teachers of Andhra University campus colleges who are eligible to get promoted to the higher position have been
waiting for the administration to conduct the Career Advancement Scheme (CAS) interviews. The Administration has
been silent on this aspect for the last few months after giving an indication that the long overdue process would be
resumed. CAS interviews are likely to be held during October first week or second week and about 85 teachers would be
benefited. Eligible Assistant Professors who were recruited in 2006 and Professors who joined in 1994 would get senior
pay-scale after the screening committee examine their cases while the rest would have to appear for the CAS interviews
to get promoted to the next higher position, i.e., Associate Professor or Professor. To receive senior pay-scale some
requirements have to be fulfilled, like an Assistant Professor having a Ph.D. degree and a professor having publications
in his or her name.
AU facing a funds crunch is reportedly going ahead with CAS interviews as the financial commitment is not high. But
no move is seen to fill up the 127 teachers vacancies.
