NASHIK: The Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS) is waiting for the state government to approve its proposal to create various posts in the university. At present, the university has about 150 permanent staff and about 400 additional employees working on daily wage basis.

Kashinath Garkal, registrar of the university, said MUHS has been pursuing the issue with the government and hopes that the decision in this regard will be taken soon.

"The university caters to 321 colleges across the state and has considerable administrative workload. It also has to form various committees for different administrative and academic works for which we need employees," he said.

When the varsity started functioning in 1998, the government had stated in its resolution that MUHS would require additional staff. However, no new posts have been created since. The university pays about Rs 250 per day to each daily wager from its own funds, which amounts to lakhs of rupees. Besides, the salaries of other staff members on contract basis too are on the higher side, thereby piling financial burden on the university.

Garkal said last month, the state government had asked the university to provide the number of vacant posts. "As per the norms, the number of vacant posts cannot be less than 20%. The university had immediately told the government about the number of vacant posts, which is well below the said norms," he said.

Garkal said the finance committee of MUHS has been apprised about the issue. The committee is expected to raise the issue with a high power committee of the state government. The contractual staff had raised the issue in January this year demanding fixed payments from the university funds.

If the posts are created, the university would be able to improve its existing schemes and chalk out better plans through the funds saved, he added.
