The Kerala Gazetted Officers Association (KGOA) has demanded withdrawal of the decision to give promotions to teaching staff in engineering colleges through interviews in violation of the existing norms. It said that giving promotions through interviews was against existing seniority and the principle of social justice.

 It said that more time should be given for teachers to secure PhDs who are to be promoted as associate professors. The association said that special rules and DPC system were in existence for a long time for departmental promotions. However, many of the eligible candidates were not given promotions after the UDF Govt in 2004 had introduced the interview system through the special rules, KGOA secretary K Shivakumar and president T K Subhash said. Many of the eligible candidates were not given promotions, they alleged.  The LDF Govt that came to power later revoked the decision and the ranklist prepared as per the interview alone was cancelled. However, the present UDF has reinstated the interview system again, they said.
