B.L.I.Sc. Distance Education Not Valid for CSIR CRRI

Dear LIS friends,

I'm Prasanth Kumar, I applied CSIR-CRRI Technical Assistant Post on 6th April 2019. CRRI Screening Committee selected me to attend the trade test at CSIR-CRRI (New Delhi) as per notice on 28th August 2019. They send me trade test and written test admit card. So, I attend the trade test on 25th October 2019. While the Trade test Screening Committee rejected me because of I get my B.L.I.Sc degree through distance mode. 

While applying the technical assistant post I submitted all my documents in pdf and I send hard copies of all my certificates through the post.

Here my question is why so many reputation institutions are not accepting B.L.I.Sc and M.L.I.Sc Distance Education Degrees? 

My kind requests to all LIS professionals while preparing requirement notices please mention Regular/ Distance mode option. This will help all job seekers applying the right post.

In my case, I attend the trade test at CSIR-CRRI New Delhi, from Chennai. Just imagine personally I spent 1500 rupees for train fare and 4 nights and 2 days in train, nearly I traveled 4405 kilometers.

Kindly see the advertisement and my admit card here I attached. Please share if you're studied B.L.I.Sc Distance Mode any institution not accepted your application please update the institution name, this will help all LIS professionals.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. - Henry Ford

Thanks & Regard

Hello prasanth kumar, 

As per CSIR Service Rules, 1994 for Recruitment of Scientific, Technical and Support Staff qualifications are mentioned as Full time duration. 

But in this advertisement (You are shortlisted)  CSIR clearly described that full time duration in other areas like civil, electrical etc. But not mentioned in Library science area. I hope some institutions prefer full time students and those institutions are created rule and bylaws as per own.

The clear view about distance education as per ugc  

Many cases are related with that (distance vs regular) if i found any justification order i will share with you.  Best wishes for your next one. Thank you.

Dear Prasanth, I am regularly checking the comment section of your post from day 1 of posting the original post for discussion. Personally I know a few LIS professionals who have completed their Bachellor or Master degree from open and distance mode and are well placed and also member of this website. CSIR advertisement does not surprise me as I have seen such kind of advertisement in the past also. Kindly search over LIS Links forum to locate them, what surprise me more is the fact that day by day we have stop to stand for the right of our colleagues. So, kindly consider it as your own struggle. What I would like to suugest is to write to Distance Education Bureau with copy to IGNOU and Annamali University  asking their stand on such issues and what they are doing for this. 

Dear Prasanth,

As CSIR is one of the leading R&D organizations in India, it has defined its own recruitment rules/ by laws. CSIR has all the rights to reject you through different tests. But CSIR cannot reject you as because you did your BLISC from distance education mode. If you succeed to shortlist your name with other students that mean you have depth knowledge and ability similar to other regular mode students.

So, it is better to inform the issue to Distance Education Bureau- UGC as well as IGNOU for their perusal and necessary action.   

Dear Prasanth,

                        It's very much disheartened me as I did my LIS degree from IGNOU. A few people still in the society they don't want to recognize the distance learning and full of doubts regarding this systems. Besides I have seen so many scholars those who completed their degree in distance mode and  enjoying the highest academic portfolio. Being a  student of IGNOU I feel proud that I have also got a central govt. job in our field to face a lot a problem like you. So, forget all these allegations and try for the better opportunity, you will be succeed definitely.

FILE a case  DEB  for providing this degree, which is not accepted by the govt. org. simple
