Ahmedabad: With orders from the state government to follow the roster system for filling up teaching and non-teaching posts, the Gujarat University has been forced to reject all applications it received through a previous advertisement for 30 teaching posts in 18 departments. The university will now go for fresh applications. The university had earlier advertised for the posts in November 2013, with all vacancies meant for the open category. Gujarat University’s SC/ST cell strongly objected to this move and threatened to take the matter to court if the roster system – meant for filling up posts after inviting applications from categories including SCs and STs – was not followed. Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, the state education minister, intervened in the matter and, having met both the parties, directed the university administration to follow the roster system.
