For the information of all concerned the UGC letters on Academic Status for Librarians is attached. Also Delhi High Court's recent judgment containing long arguments on academic works of Librarians is also provided. We have to defend all our legitimate rights and fight back all attempts from any quarters. Together we march to get the same designation of teachers and we have to teach a paper- information literacy and knowledge resources.

Do Librarians really get position as teachers now....
We are treated as non teaching staff now. though working as UGC librarian.
Since the attached documents are not working for many, I am attaching herewith fresh copies of the document uploaded by SUNNY JOSEPH.

But discrimination prevails in AICTE, MCI, DCI, CoA..etc approved self financing institutions.College Librarians with a National Teaching Eligibility are regarded as less prevailed. Can the forum get an equivalent award from the AICTE?
Its good, but it is matter of serious concern about what is going on in reality.
the letters attached regarding the status of librarian have been issued a decade or more years back. the last year UGC issued a letter to Haryana Govt. (I have copy of the letter and can provide who ever is interested) in which it has been clearly mentioned that "Librarian should be treated as non-academic non vacational staff". we approached the UGC and they remained on the same stand that Librarians are non-academic staff. we demanded information through various RTIs but UGC did not write even a single line on the teaching/academic status of Librarian. Ultimately we approached to Central Information Commission and prayed to provide us the document/rule/regulation on the basis of which UGC has categorized librarian as non-academic staff. CIC ordered to the UGC to provide the appropriate documents on the issue but UGC officials supplied the irrelevant information. i again approached to the CIC against the documents/information supplied, the case is again in row.
so we need not to be happy as again and again ugc is trying to categorized us as non-academic staff and the recent example is XII eleventh year plan's notification for major/minor projects eligibility.
