KATHMANDU: Around 1,500 Tribhuvan University teachers are found to have been teaching at other campuses.

TU Monitoring Directorate executive director Bishnu Khanal said they are doing part-time jobs in other colleges after taking permission from the TU.

The by-rule relating to the Directorate allows TU permanent teachers and those appointed on contract-basis to visit other TU constituent colleges for teaching only after acquiring permission from the TU.

As shared by Khanal, during the fiscal year 2075-76 BS (2018-19), 1,358 teachers had been granted permission for visiting other campuses for part-time jobs and this number was 1,417 in the previous year. Such a part-time job should not hamper the TU, he said, adding the approval was given being based on the nature of the application submitted by teachers towards that end.

As per the report of the National Vigilance Centre, TU teachers have been found teaching in two to three places at the same shift. Around 18 percent of TU teachers have been teaching at other places taking permission from TU, reads the center’s report.

The number of TU teachers teaching at private colleges without taking permission from TU is high. The report has not carried out research and survey about the TU teachers, working as a consultant in non- government organizations.

There are around 8,000 fulltime teachers at TU. According to him, the TU does not grant permission to such an application filed asking for permission to teach at other colleges and universities which do not meet the conditions stipulated in its statute. It had not granted permission to 14 TU teachers in 2018/19 and 11 teachers in 2017/18 as they were TU office-bearers, said Khanal.

The TU does not grant permission to such teachers described as office-bearer to teach in other colleges and universities, except under it. TU office-bearers, Dean, Assistant Dean, Directors of the Directorate, Deputy Director, Examination Controller, campus chief and assistant-chief have been described as office-bearers.

Executive Director Khanal said discussions were held for allowing the specialist doctors in the health service to work in other universities although they are TU office-bearers.

“A proposal has been received to allow the specialist doctor at TU Teaching Hospital to work in other places, considering the humanitarian sensitivity,” he said, adding that they were thinking of allowing such specialist doctors in other universities after discussing the issue.

TU has 61 constituent colleges, 39 bodies, nine Dean offices and four research departments. In this fiscal year too, TU has published a notice calling for applications from its teachers for permission to teach in private colleges and other universities.

Deputy Director at the Directorate, Om Baral said so far around 500 university’s teachers have applied seeking permission to teach in private colleges and other universities. The deadline for the application is December 16.

TU has recommended to the TU Executive Council to take action against 20 of its teachers who are teaching in private colleges and other universities without its permission, Executive Director Khanal said.
